Former Vigil creative director Joe Madureira stated that Darksiders 3 would have featured cooperative multiplayer.
The reveal came during an interview with IGN where he also said the game would have featured the final two Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
“It was always our hope to do a full four-player co-op game, with all four Horsemen playable,” Madureira said. “It’s possible we could have pulled it off. I would have liked to introduce Fury and Strife. I know many fans feel robbed that they never got to play the last two Horsemen.”
A storyline that was considered was to have the Horsemen battle Lucifer in Hell as they tried to regain their freedom.
“There was also an idea to do crazy ‘western’ type story, where the Horsemen are mortals after the rebirth of Mankind, sort of an alternate future,” he added. “But neither idea got very far.”
The game’s IP is currently in the hands of Nordic after they purchased numerous IPs last month.
“I’m not sure how I feel about the Nordic purchase to be honest,” he said. “I have sort of a ‘wait and see’ attitude about it, as I’m sure many people do. I’m not sure if I’d want to get involved with it or not.”
