Darksiders 3 Gameplay Will Not Be Linear, You Can Choose Who You Fight First

Reinhard Pollice, producer at THQ Nordic talked about Darksiders 3 gameplay and he mentioned that the game is not linear. Here is what you need to know.

Darksiders 3 is around the corner and the devs are revealing more information every day. Reinhard Pollice, producer at THQ Nordic talked about Darksiders 3 gameplay and he mentioned that the game is not linear. We learned that you can choose which boss you want to fight.

If you go up against a boss and you find the encounter a bit difficult then you can move on to the other boss and come back later. Hence you are not bound to a linear game where you need to pass stages in order to get to the next one. I think that this is a cool little feature that fans of the series will appreciate.

Darksiders 3 Gameplay

This is the first time that we are getting such a feature in a Darksiders game. The original Darksiders was linear and the second one was pretty linear as well. Reinhard also mentioned that there will be fewer but more meaningful battles. I am not sure what that means but with the game coming out around the corner, we will find out soon enough.

Furthermore, we got details regarding the weapon that Fury is going to use in Darksiders 3. The whip is a unique weapon which has 347 blades. Unlike the other horsemen that we have played with, in previous Darksiders games, Fury has magical powers and the whip changes as she evolves. What is what we see in the different Darksiders 3 gameplay videos.

In a previous interview, Reinhard Pollice also talked about how Fury is not going to cross paths with War or Death on her journey. This is something that we were not expecting. It has been 3 games and we hoped that there would be some kind of interaction between the horsemen. It is possible that the devs are trying to mislead the fans so that they can go nuts when they play the game but for now, this is all that we know of.


Let us know what you think about Darksiders 3 gameplay being non-linear and whether or not you are interested in playing the game when it comes out, later next month.
