From the looks of it, it’s going to be continuing in the same vein as Darksiders 2. Or maybe a hybrid of the first and the second. I really enjoyed the 2nd game and thought it was far more interesting and fun than the first, with a better character to boot.
Seems this is taking place during the events of 2. If they managed to make all these games (at least 1 more game with the final rider or maybe 1 after to combine them all) it’ll be pretty fucking cool they managed to pull it off.
God I hope they do not fuck this up. I really really like the Darksiders franchise for some reason? I recognize they are not great games but I also have a very real adoration for that series. Fury was a good choice out of their 4 established horsemen given that the other one is almost entirely gun based and they’d probably just have to go a straight bayonetta route which I trust no one but platinum to do.
I really liked Darksiders 1, I thought Darksiders 2 did some interesting things and had a great score, even if I liked it less, but man, is anyone else feeling generally trepidatious about what this third one is presenting? Why are we fighting the Seven Deadly Sins of all things? Fury’s appearance feels sexualized in a bad way for someone named “Fury” and not “Horny.” Maybe my tastes have changed since I played the first Darksiders. Thoughts?
She looks straight out of Legacy of Kain. Tbh fam, I’m not sure how I feel about her design; I wish they’d stuck closer to her initial designs, (only clothed.)
But I’m still really happy this is happening. This is literally my dream come true. I thought the series was done for after THQ blew the fuck up, Vigil split apart, and it seemed like no one was buying the Darksiders IP. God bless you, Nordic. They even got back to me when I emailed them asking if DS2 was coming to Xbox One.
I really hope the remasters aren’t indicative of the quality of this game. Ideally, those were poor because everyone was focused on this.
