Darksiders III Introduces Fury’s Horse in a Sprawling Trailer

Nathan Birch

Darksiders III protagonist Fury is one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, so where the heck has her horse been? We’ve seen plenty of trailers and gameplay from Darksiders III, and in none of it is our Horseman (er, Horsewoman? Horseperson?) riding her horse. Well, that changes now! THQ Nordic has released a new video showing Fury chumming around her horsey, who, appropriately, goes by the name Rampage. It’s a rather lovely trailer, and makes good use of the America classic “A Horse With No Name,” so I suggest you check it out, below.

Hmmm, now is this trailer just Darksiders III developer Gunfire Games having fun/being a bit artsy, or does it hint at some larger, more open environments for the game? So far, pretty much all the Darksiders III footage we’ve seen has taken place in somewhat cramped corridors and catacombs. It’s clear this trailer was made in-engine, and creating this whole desert environment just for a 90-second trailer sure seems like a lot of unnecessary work. It will be interesting to see how Rampage is integrated into the game.

Haven’t been keeping up with Darksiders III? Here’s what the game’s all about:

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.

  • Play as Fury – A mage who must rely on her whip and magic to restore the balance between good and evil here on Earth!
  • 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.
  • Defeat the Seven Deadly Sins – Take down these bosses and their servants who range from mystical creatures to degenerated beings.
