So Darksiders 3 was revealed last week and hey, I’m surprised and pretty damn excited. I didn’t think there’d be a third game after all the hoo-ha following Darksiders 2. While I’ve never played the first game, I’m a big Darksiders fan. I honestly don’t know why I haven’t touched the first Darksiders, but I plan on playing it within the next couple of weeks, which I’m looking forward to. Darksiders 2 however, I managed to complete a few years ago, and it got me hooked to the franchise.
Fury, The Third Horseman
Darksiders 3 introduces the horsewoman Fury, the protagonist who whips her enemies out of shape, and more specifically to fight off the seven deadly sins. Seven bosses she’s sent to Earth to take care of.
There are two things I love about this character already. Her whip and her hair. What I like about the whip is that it, for some reason, reminds me of Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones and how the Dark Prince uses a spiked chain rip through his foes. Not only that, but I’m curious to see how she fully plays with her weapon of choice. It looks like Fury will be a powerful but nimble character, relying on her athleticism. Would the trade-off be how she won’t be able to take on as much damage. I see her more of a ‘glass cannon’, who will be able to deal a lot of damage to multiple targets at the cost of defence.
Fury’s Hair Is Snazzy
Fury’s hair is almost like a character on its own, with the way it moves by itself, unaffected by gravity. It actually makes her look far more menacing, like Medusa’s hair of snakes. I wonder if there will be some kind of ability involving her hair. Maybe lasers…or more whips.
Have a look at some pre-alpha gameplay below.
With the little information we have so far, what do you think of Darksiders 3?
