A First Look at Darksiders 3 Gameplay shows us a truly vicious look at the new protagonist of the game, Fury in all her glory.
It’s look much better and the sound have much improved.
Reminds me a lot of the old God of War (not a fan, but the new one looks really good) games mixed with heavenly sword. I think for it's genre it looks pretty damn good really, but I am not a fan personally.
It's disappointing looking as a Darksiders 1 fan. Darksiders was good until the endgame levels. The only thing this may have is good level design.
Classic gameplay but looks nice.i like this series, especially the first one. It had an amazing character design
My kind of game... man I hope this does well and leads to the final horseman game.
I kind of like how each game is changing gameplay to account for the different characters of a sort, but also wish I had a sequel where I could play as War again.
Visually it looks good. But some of the animations definitely needs work. The animation blends on the main character looks like they haven't really blended properly and her idle animation (and going into idle animation) looks kinda odd.
Agreed but I think the important thing will be engine optimization! This type of action game is best played at 60fps. Its why bayonetta and ninja gaiden felt so good! But so far the videos have shown frame rate issues. I was shocked to find the remastered darksiders 1 and 2 on Xbox one still did not run a solid 60fps.
I'm really surprised the remastered versions are running 60fps - Haven't got an Xbox, but I would definitely have thought they'd be running at 60fps.
@cruektylizer Yes darksiders 1 remaster runs at 60 but is not a solid 60 and darksider 2 runs only 30fps and dips below at times which is very bad! its a shame as i was looking forward to playing through both games again at 60fps but looks like i should of just gotten both of them on my pc instead. I doubt the darksiders 3 will be 60fps which will be a shame, i will defo get it on pc as action games like these just feel perfect at 60fps.
The dodge and whip animations are superb!
God of War ripe this one a new one 2018!
I don't think this competes with God of War. God of War doesn't even look like it's gonna be hack and slash.
It'd be humorous if Darksiders didn't come to PS4.
That is proving to not go so well with games that just stick to Microsoft.
God of War 3 2010 on PS3 looks much more beautiful and better done than this game
Prince of Persia The two Thrones
Wow. It actually is extremely similar. She even swings the chains over her head almost identically to the Dark Prince and its used the same way it was used in The Two Thrones for platforming as well. That game is actually a great combination of the best elements from Sands Of Time and Warrior Within with its own cool additions. Really underrated. No complaints about Darksiders taking some inspiration.
Seems on rails with how easy it looks.
Yeah. Those dodges at the right time and knowing which attacks to make I think are just all done with a single button press.
With how slow the game is, it really seems way too easy. It's not as if there aren't way faster games that require you to do the same things with multiple enemies on the screen while pulling multiple combos. Hopefully this is just the tutorial and this game is actually challenging.
People need need to stop bitching about darksiders 3. This is good as your going to get for action game. I love it. People this day in age can't tell good if it bitten then in the ass.
Ah I'm willing to bet my house that Bayonetta 3 will by far be the superior game.
So? What does one game being better than another have to do with both of them still possibly being good?
Because I doubt that this is the best an action game can get. Maybe next time read the comment I'm replying to to get a better picture of what I'm saying.
Gotcha and apologies.
I'm hoping for the same level of puzzles as the second game.
I hope the level design is like the first one. DS2 wasn’t bad, but it really felt like you were running around and solving puzzles for like 75%, and combat just wasn’t as satisfying. I couldn’t even finish it. Might go back to it someday, but the first was a much better game imo.
Game looks much more improved compared to when it was first revealed. The weapons seems to feel like they have an impact when hitting enemies now. The sound is also better as well. Really looking forward to this one.
These moves look similar to GOW, unfortunately it also seems very slow.
Yep very slow and in turn very easy.
As a huge fan of this series I can't play 3rd if it has no loot I am sorry darksiders 2 was awesome
Got my name written all over it :)
Looking pretty good. I'm really digging Fury's look.
to me the gameplay looks decent enough I guess but honestly why do the graphics look exactly like the first two games, chunky, low res, unfinished, even the character and mob armor/skins look blocky and low detail
Fury is not a very feminine character model. It's possible to make strong heroines without turning them into dudes (Aloy). I love the darksiders games and the gameplay has always been their strong suit, hopefully it still is but for now the jury is still out.
They definitely improve from what was shown some months ago and is looking great, but still since her name is Fury I think she should be moving a lot faster, in Darksiders II Death protagonist moves way more awesome than this, even War character looks hell way cooler than this, devs still needs to work on her....hmm that didn't sound right .. lol.
I can't wait to play this game. Darksiders in my favorite game series.
First games were painful to play for me no joy had did a few levels i tried.
I've never played the previous entries in the series, but I love all of the God of War games, and this looks like it's seriously channeling GoW, which is a good thing. I might have to keep an eye out on this one, because it's looking good from what little they're showing in this video.
Darksiders is a mix of a few games, unashamedly, and all the better for it. It's clearly influenced by Zelda and GOW, but with its own charm. I hope it's a return to form, I enjoyed the 2nd game but the first is my favourite, the 2nd wasn't as focused. Still a fine game though.
played the first one, ignored the second one, will most certainly also ignore this one. some franchises just don't try but only deliver more of the same. boring.
This looks a lot more appealing to me than the combat for the first two.
Hope there are more zelda like dungeons filled puzzle like like in the 1st but with the refinement in combat and the loot system from the 2nd game
So its god of war.. jk dont hate me
Do not the like the character or setting. POP 2 thrones dark price had similar weapon but it was a very good game for its time and I think even now I would play it if they remake it. Not excited for this at all. Looks average at best
A low budget game?
Technically, this game does have a very low budget. It's barely getting made at all. So, people expecting great graphics are going to be disappointed. The gameplay and final price is up to the devs and publishers, though.
if it's $39 would be interesting, if it cost $60 no thanks
I thought this series was based on the four horseman? Fury isn't a horseman. It's War, Famine, Pestilence, and Death.
She's Famine. It goes War, Death, Famine (Fury), and Pestilence (Strife). She just has a different name than her idealogy in the game unlike the first two. This was all detailed in the first two games, it's not a sudden change.
Is it just me or does anybody else think this game will flop big time?
Even though I've already seen gameplay footage of this game months back. I never would've guess one of the Mythical 4 horsemen would be a female. Here's hoping the game is good though.
What happened to the main dude?
Game 1 - War Game 2 - Death Game 3 - Famine (Fury) Game 4 - Pestilence (Strife)
Oh that's dope, thank you.
Its not bad, but it need still a boost in many areas and it need to be mor polished. They still got time.
The author of this article has clearly never played a Darksiders game. Fury is one of the horsemen
Would be cool if maybe in a later game you can play as the past characters and each will have the weapons collected from the previous games. Maybe the last game will have this and even better a co-op feature....4 player TMNT style!!
