Darksiders III Intro Trailer Reveals the Roots of the Apocalypse

Darksiders III Intro Trailer Reveals the Roots of the Apocalypse

A brand new trailer for Darksiders III showcases the intro cutscene and reveals the backstory for the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

A brand new trailer for the upcoming Darksiders III has released and it reveals the backstory behind the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse through the opening intro cutscene.

“Among the scholars of both heaven and hell, this query is known as the Riddle of Sorrows. If sin is itself a part of the grand design, is not sin by definition divine? A question for the soldiers, the one particularly restless bunch kept a robust relationship to the topic.”

This trailer was particularly hard for me to write a transcript of because of that really over-the-top demon voice changer, combined with YouTube’s god awful captioning algorithm. According to my awful transcript, “the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” betrayed the “warriors” of which they were a part of.

The Four Horsemen are, as you may know, War, Strife, Fury, and Death. In Darksiders III, you play as Fury “in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins.” I can presume that the demonic voice you hear in the brand new trailer is The Charred Council, who call upon Fury to battle her way through all the depths of Hell to restore balance and “prove she is the fiercest of the four horsemen.”

“FURY is a mage, her form evolving throughout gameplay and with it, her powers and weaponry. FURY will traverse back and forth between environments, battling other-worldly creatures and unlocking puzzles while advancing the Darksiders story.”

You’ll have to see the trailer for yourself, which you can below, in order to fully grasp the backstory of the Four Horsemen who have been so prominent throughout the entire series. It’s not just a trailer, it’s the entire intro cutscene for the game which is 3 minutes long.

Darksiders III launches November 27, 2018, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. You can pre-order the game on Amazon now.
