The official Darksiders YouTube channel released a lore-centered trailer in anticipation of Darksiders III which is launching this month.
The trailer, titled “intro,” is an introduction to the story of the Darksiders universe for new fans who may have not played Darksiders I and II, and a deep dive into new protagonist Fury for returning veterans to the series.
Making use of muted color tones and a somber narration, the trailer reintroduces players to the universe of Darksiders III. Albeit from a new perspective through the horseman known as Fury, sister to previous protagonists and fellow Horsemen, War and Death from Darksiders I and Darksiders II respectively.
While this clip showcases no new gameplay footage for us to analyze, the “intro” trailer offers much for those interested in Darksiders’ universe to unravel.
By showing an early viewing of the game’s intro movie, players may be able to better speculate the tone of the game. Fury’s journey seems to exude a different energy than past adventures with War and Death.
Gone is the patient nobility of War and the edgy sarcasm of Death. Instead, Fury exhibits a degree of impatience and restlessness with her position, wanting to prove herself as a Horseman.
The Charred Council makes note of her unpredictability in the intro. It will be interesting to see how her interactions with the council and with other denizens of the universe differ from her brothers.
Darksiders III will release on Nov. 27, 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This title will be the first entirely new Darksiders game to be launched under the new umbrella of THQ Nordic.
