The Lords of Shadow trilogy, particularly the first one, was one of the more successful examples of a series reboot. It took the tone and made it grittier while preserving the gothic atmosphere. It also took traditional story hooks and flipped them on their head. Combine this with one of the more successful God of War style battle systems, which provided its own hooks via its unique magic system, and you have a recipe for success.
Moreover, like Darksiders 3, LoS has your main character controlling a whip-wielding protagonist. Isn’t that reason enough to connect the two titles?
