Today, publisher THQ Nordic and developer Gunfire Games officially revealed Darksiders III’s gameplay (via IGN) in 12 new minutes of pre-alpha footage.
In case you missed it, Darksiders III was announced earlier this week, garnering a very positive reception and love upon its reveal.
The third game is said to be a post-apocalyptic open-world open-world action-adventure that includes a focus on environmental puzzles and exploration. Additionally, it will continue the series’ hack and slash combat, but with a new protagonist Fury, a mage who must rely on her whip and magic to restore the balance between good and evil on Earth. The game is set around the same time as Darksiders 2 — so before Darksiders — and follows Fury’s quest to destroy physical versions of of the Seven Deadly Sins.
Darksiders III is set to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in 2018. Below, you can check out the new footage/gameplay reveal:
