Darksiders 3 was just announced earlier this week by THQ Nordic. The game is being created by Gunfire Games, a company made up of a number of former Vigil Games employees who worked on the first two games. In Darksiders 3, players take on the role of Fury, “a mage who is considered to be the most powerful of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalpyse.” She wields a whip, which is quite different from that of the previous games.
Yesterday, IGN posted an early look at the game as part of its “IGN First” series. In it, we get to see Fury explore the game world and beat up various enemies with her whip. The video ends with a fight against Sloth, a bug-like boss that Fury has to knock off of a throne that is being carried by other bug-like creatures. Despite the fact that it is currently in Pre-Alpha, gameplay looks rather nice so far.
