Return to an apocalyptic Earth in Darksiders III, a hack-n-slash Action Adventure where players assume the role of Fury in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins. The most unpredictable and enigmatic of the Four Horsemen, Fury must succeed where many have failed – to bring balance to the forces that now ravage Earth. Darksiders III is the long-anticipated, third chapter in the critically-acclaimed Darksiders franchise.

- Harness Fury’s magic to unleash her various forms – Each granting her access to new weapons, moves and traversal abilities.
- Explore an open-ended, living, game world – Fury moves back and forth between environments to uncover secrets while advancing the story.
