Well it was technically leaked earlier today, but now THQ Nordic has actually revealed it for real. Here’s the first trailer showing the game in action:
So what’s the setup here you may be wondering?
Well, here’s how THQ explains the story and characters in the game:
Return to an apocalyptic planet Earth in Darksiders III, a hack-n-slash action adventure where players take on the role of FURY in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins. The Charred Council calls upon Fury to battle from the heights of heaven down through the depths of hell in a quest to restore humanity and prove that she is the most powerful of the Horsemen. As a mage, FURY relies on her whip and magic to restore the balance between good and evil. The expansive, Darksiders III game world is presented as an open-ended, living, free-form planet Earth that is dilapidated by war and decay, and overrun by nature. FURY will move back and forth between environments to uncover secrets while advancing the Darksiders III story.
As you can see, it’s the story of a new character called Fury as she hunts down and destroys the Seven Deadly Sins. Which is a pretty familiar premise overall. Since War and Death were the stars of the first two games…
It’s a simple, fairly safe sequel. A standard open world here. Typical art style of the series there. The odd new combat mechanic to make Fury stand out a bit. Basically, it’s Darksiders 3 as you’d expect/want Darksiders 3 to be like.
And it’s heading to the PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2018. So hey, what do you think about it? Are you interested in this game? Or do you feel this series isn’t quite your thing?
