About Darksiders III
Return to an apocalyptic planet Earth in Darksiders III, a hack-n-slash action adventure where players take on the role of FURY in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins. The Charred Council calls upon Fury to battle from the heights of heaven down through the depths of hell in a quest to restore humanity and prove that she is the most powerful of the Horsemen. As a mage, FURY relies on her whip and magic to restore the balance between good and evil. The expansive, Darksiders III game world is presented as an open-ended, living, free-form planet Earth that is dilapidated by war and decay, and overrun by nature. FURY will move back and forth between environments to uncover secrets while advancing the Darksiders III story. More on Darksiders III here http://darksiders.com
@SplitTongue: that sounds funny though, but alas people would get their panties in a twist over it. (26 minutes ago)
Not long ago, I've seen a funny fake movie poster of Martin Luther King being played by a white actor "for the sake of diversity". Can you imagine the backlash this would be getting? (40 minutes ago)
Personally I would've reserved the "V" to BF V(ietnam) (49 minutes ago)
Tbh I think the backlash is deserved. Fans asked for a ww2 setting, not an alternative past ww2 setting. If they wanted their designers to get creative they should've sticked to 2143 maybe ? (51 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: No, that is my whole point. If they put women and minorities in there, and that becomes a controversy (Remember Sarkeesian), than I will care. No reverse sexism and racism bs. All equal. (1 Hour ago)
Watched the Frags video again which shows it in slow motion and it does look nuts but kinda intrigues me tbh. (1 Hour ago)
I bet a lot of BF fans are creaming over the fortifications as if it's a new feature when in fact it was in BF:PR nearly 13 years ago lol! (1 Hour ago)
