Feel the apocalyptic power of Fury in this new trailer and screens for Darksiders 3

Darksiders 3 (6)

Darksiders 3, the sequel that almost never was. When THQ crashed and burned, it looked like the end for a series that was just getting started. The original Darksiders may have been seen as a Legend of Zelda game on the most stylish steroids ever injected, but it was still a heap of fun to play. Darksiders 2 opened up the formula immensely, and while it might not have hit the same highs as the original, it was still a hell of a game.

Fortunately, THQ Nordic stepped in and took control of the franchise. In many ways, the third game in the series represents a fresh start for the characters and worlds that Joe Madureira and his development team cooked up so many years ago. Fury herself shares plenty of influences from Dark Souls, resulting in a game that looks more strategic than flashy, only without the overwhelmingly oppressive atmosphere soaking into your bones.

Can that new direction pull off a win for THQ and developer Gunfire Games? Hell if I know, but I’m still intrigued by what I see in the latest trailer for Darksiders 3, that shows off Fury and her ultimate skillset:

THQ Nordic and Gunfire Games today unveiled Force Fury, the Force hollow form of Darksiders III protagonist and third horsemen of the Apocalypse Fury! Fury’s form evolves throughout the game and with it, her powers and weaponry. Her so called Hollows are powers bestowed upon her by the Hollow Lord to help her lead the Horsemen and defeat the Seven Deadly Sins.

Once she unlocked them, Fury can switch between her four Hollows at will, to adapt to her enemies and environment.

Because I’m such a swell fella, here’s a bunch of new screenshots to feast on as well:

Darksiders III whips it real good on November 27. It’ll be out on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

  1. This game occupies a peculiar place in my mind. I see it, it looks goods, but I have NO desire to play it. None.
    Even if it gets amazing reviews, don’t know if I’ll grab it.

      I’ll be getting it. Of all the games coming out this year still, this is the only one I actually want. The rest don’t interest me at all. Yes, that includes RDR2, which is a skip from me.

        The first two soured me. Too derivative.
        plus, how the hell is FURY a Horseman? Still bugs me.

          Derivative is not the same as bad. Most games are a derivative of something. Very, very few original games exist. That’s why you have entire sub-genres named after the first game to come up with that style, like a Souls-like, Rogue-like, Metroidvania, etc.

          The first 2 games were a lot of fun to play. And the lore is its own lore. While it borrows the concept of the four horseman, this isn’t AC, so historical/factual accuracy really isn’t a concern. Doesn’t bug me at all.

            They weren’t bad, you’re right. And yeah, most games do borrow elements from others.
            But the whole time while playing both (I never finished either of them), it didn’t feel like there was any real substance to it. I got the point on both where I just no longer cared about carrying on.
            So if 3 goes on sale a couple years down the line, I’ll likely pick it up. No rush at all for me in this matter.

            Yeah fair enough. 🙂 We all have our own tastes in the end. I hate the Dark Souls games for example. I find them tedious and dull.

            Heh, whereas I love them because they’re challenging.
            Though a lot of that love comes from the 1st one, because of the world design. The way all those twists and turns brought one right back to the initial area again.

            From everything I’ve heard, DS3 does everything 1 does, but better. I’d have thought that would be a solid contributor for the love of the series?

            DS3 is great, don’t get me wrong. Also lots of love for it. The character movement is especially much better than 1, likely due to the Bloodborne influence.

            But it doesn’t compare to 1 in terms of world design, IMO.

    This game looks like dreck tbh. Darksiders should have stayed buried. First game was great, second was overburdened with fluff.

    If the reviews is good and they say it the same as 1 and 2, I will get this day 1. I loved both the first games equally. Hope this works out well!
