Darksiders III is the third installment in the Darksiders Series. It was announced as of May 03, 2017 by THQ Nordic and under development by Gunfire Games. It is the parallel sequel to Darksiders II. It will feature Fury in a quest on the ruined Earth to hunt and destroy the Seven Deadly Sins. During the game she will encounter Ulthane.
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.
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.
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.
