Game release: “Darksiders III” (PC,PS4,Xbox One)

Gunfire Games and THQ Nordic revive the classic action-adventure series with Darksiders III.

It has been six years since the release of the second Darksiders game, but only two with Darksiders: Warmastered Edition and three with Darksiders II – Deathinitive Edition bringing the series to a new generation of gamers. The mix of God of War-style hack and slash in addition to Zelda-like puzzles and exploration was a lot of fun back in the days, and the games still look appealing today thanks to the art direction of comic writer Joe Madureira, and the newest entry seems to continue this tradition.

The main protagonist is Fury, the sister of War and Death who are part of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ensemble, and it’s up to her to stop the Seven Deadly Sins from destroying the world. No easy feat, but with the use of her whip and magic, she doesn’t back down and unleashes flurries of attacks on all sorts of demonic enemies. Variety in fighting styles is a given due to the various magic forms she can take which make her use different weapons, moves, and ways of traversing the open world. Collecting souls from defeated enemies and using them for leveling up and upgrading Fury’s abilities and weapons might sound familiar to those who’ve played Dark Souls, but as this gameplay element has been there since God of War, one can’t hold this lack of originality against it. The game might not reinvent the genre, but it sure looks like over-the-top entertainment the series has been known for.

Darksiders III is now available on PC as well as on PS4 and Xbox One in various retail and online versions. The deluxe edition includes the base game and two paid DLCs as well as the soundtrack, while the Blades & Whip edition should be considered the complete package with the former two games as remastered versions.
