Darksiders 3 is a few months away and the anticipation is real. Here we are going to show you some new gameplay and share some new details, as well as speculation and theories regarding Fury and Strife that you might be interested in. Being a Darksiders fan, I found all this very interesting indeed and I thought that you might be interested as well.
Darksiders 3 Details You Might Have Missed
Darksiders 3 is going to have a lot of in-depth story and while we have already learned that we will be getting more insights into what happened at the end of Darksiders 2 here we are going to look into the fate of Fury and where Strife is when all this is taking place.
New Gameplay Featuring Deadly Sin Wrath
We have already seen Sloth, one of the seven deadly sins and here we have another one, Wrath. While we do not have much context regarding his personality he seems to be much faster than Slot and more aggressive as well. You can check out the gameplay of the boss fight with Wrath in the video below.
We also have some more gameplay that shows different combos that you can use in the game as well as glimpses into the different puzzles that players will need to solve in order to progress further. The commentary is in French, so apologies in advance if you do not understand the language.
Fury’s Fate And Strife’s Whereabouts
Fury is the third horsemen and if you have played the previous games you will have noticed that in the first game war dies. In the second game, we are left at a cliffhanger where Death is presumed dead as well. It is not clear whether he died in the process of resurrecting humanity or whether the souls that he was carrying were enough to bargain with.
A Reddit user has a very interesting theory regarding Fury. It is speculated that Fury too will die in the end and that does make sense if you go through the whole theory which is as follows:
Fury’s character arc will center around her relationship to the Council. She is clearly the most loyal, and has the strongest belief in the Balance (this ties neatly with the Biblical image of the Black Horseman, Famine, who rode not with a weapon, but a set of scales…sometimes called a “balance.”) Fury will discover something that shakes her belief, not just in the Council itself, but in the concept of the Balance: my guess is that Strife has been murdered and the Council refuses to restore his soul. She will try to rectify that and be killed.
We already know that Fury will have the strongest arc in the franchise and if that is indeed the case then we should see plenty of revelations headed our way. It will be interesting to see what new insights we get regarding the lore of Darksiders. If Strife is indeed dead then that will enrage the remaining horsemen. Morc35 further went on to mention the following:
All Four Horsemen die, all are restored at the critical moment of the Seal breaking, all Four have an axe to grind with the Council, Hell, and even the White City. Which means (drumroll please). They do their job. “The Four shall ride forth to judge the Wicked, whether they be Sons of Men, Lords of Heaven, or the Dregs of Hell.”
We also spotted Fury with a watcher and while we are not sure whether or no this watcher is bound to Fury or not, people that played the original game remember that War had a watcher as well and we all know how that turned out.
If this watcher is bound to Fury then expect to be pretty weak at the start of the game and slowly progress and gain your abilities. That would make sense from a progression point of view.
Darksiders 3 is not a massive game with a huge team and enormous budget, but the devs still believe that it will be able to compete against huge AAA titles like God of War. We have also learned that the game will have RPG mechanics like leveling up and crafting. Darksiders 3 should be a very interesting game indeed.
