A leak overnight told the world that Darksiders 3 is happening, and IGN was quick to publish the first trailer. Rather than another horseman of the apocalype as the protagonist, Darksiders 3 features their sister, Fury.
The trailer doesn't show much, other than Fury walking around in front of War and a narrator with fifteen testicles asking her if she's up for a septuple murder. Darksiders 2 made quite a few changes to the formula, so it'll be interesting to see some gameplay. Will it still cram many different gameplay styles into one massive game, even bordering on Shadow of the Colossus at times, or will it be more focused?
The Amazon preorder page has a few lines that make it sound quite similar to the last version:
Harness FURY's magic to unleash her various forms - each granting her access to new weapons, moves and traversal abilities. Explore an open-ended, living, free-form game world in which FURY moves back and forth between environments to uncover secrets while advancing the story.
If this trailer is anything to go by (despite not containing gameplay footage), Fury's whip looks like it can decide how solid it wants to be for a given attack, so I don't think the game will be limiting you to actual whip attacks. It also seems to have a mind of its own at times, so I'm hoping the action will be creative.
