After Darksiders 3‘s rather impromptu arrival into the public eye, developer Gunfire Games and publisher THQ Nordic had little choice but to push out an official trailer. If you thought that’d be the end of it (at least, for now), well, this pre-alpha gameplay footage begs to differ.
There’s 12 minutes of content on show, though other than some sparsely-populated environments, some whip action and a heap of backflips, there’s not a lot to see. I guess that’s not really a surprise, given the “pre-alpha gameplay” stamp in the top-right corner.
A boss fight bookends the clip and is probably the most interesting part. It’s also good to see some variety in the environments, which look pretty darn good.
If you’re desperate for more details, I wouldn’t worry too much — if the pace at which information has been released (or leaked) keeps up, you’ll probably be able to purchase Darksiders 3 by the end of next week.
