PC PS4 XONE

Darksiders III for PC, PS4 and XONE is the third installment of the Darksiders slasher series that was created in 2010. The first two games of the series were developed by Vigil Games, but when its mother company, THQ, bankrupted, the studio was shut down and the Darksiders brand was sold to Austrian publisher Nordic Games (currently known as THQ Nordic). Darksiders III was developed by Gunfire Games, a studio made of developers who previously worked in Vigil Games.

Plot

We play as Fury, a sorceress whose job is to restore the balance of Good and Evil on Earth. To do so, we have to defeat the Seven Deadly Sins and their minions. Interestingly, Fury is the only horseman in the game not directly connected to the traditional representation of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Mechanics

Darksiders III for PC, PS4 and XONE, just like the series’ previous installments, is a hack’n’slash (combat-oriented action game). The game has rather complex combat mechanics that come with various attacks, combos, and powers. Fury is a powerful warrior who uses a whip and magic. She can use the latter to take various forms that grant her access to new weapons, moves, and abilities. The game takes place in a living and open post-apocalyptic world where, besides combat, many mysteries await us.

Technical Aspects

Darksiders III for PC, PS4 and XONE uses the same visual style as the series’ previous installments.
