''Darksiders III'' features a levelling system and a crafting system. Similar to War, yet dissimilar to Death, Fury collects souls from enemies and from objects in the environment, as a form of currency or an expendable resource. According to the developer, the threats of the game's world will grow stronger as the player progresses through the story, matching Fury's power every time a Deadly Sin is defeated.

Gameplay

Darksiders III is an action role-playing hack and slash game. Players take control of Fury, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, from a third-person perspective. Fury, a mage who is described as the most unpredictable and enigmatic of the Four Horsemen, relies on whips and magic in combat.

Some enemies from previous games will return, while other foes will be new. Gated combat will not be a feature. The idea is to make everything within the setting contextualized and interconnected.

The game runs on the Unreal engine.[3]

The game's difficulty is scaled. Every time Fury defeats one of the Sins, all enemies in the game are buffed to match her level.[4]

Darksiders III features a levelling system and a crafting system. Similar to War, yet dissimilar to Death, Fury collects souls from enemies and from objects in the environment, as a form of currency or an expendable resource. According to the developer, the threats of the game's world will grow stronger as the player progresses through the story, matching Fury's power every time a Deadly Sin is defeated.

Plot

Darksiders III takes place parallel to the events of the previous game in what is described as a dilapidated, war-torn planet Earth. It follows the protagonist, Fury, the sister of the Four Horsemen in her quest to destroy the Seven Deadly Sins.[3]
