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
@Seth: If anything I've heard that Odyssey compounds those issues. I've heard plenty of people say that there's TOO MUCH content. (57 minutes ago)
I'll keep playing once per week, but the Ubi's usual world building, gigantic maps filled with crap is not changed since last gen and is kinda off putting. (1 Hour ago)
@AndreasZ94: i do like the more responsive controls of the main characters, but the world is lifeless coming from RDR2, horse controls and animations are laughable and generation behind competition. (1 Hour ago)
@AndreasZ94: I did tried AC odyssey for a few hours. It's weird, that game is extremely pretty (on PC) and i like some of the side quests and the dialogue choices. (1 Hour ago)
My second most played game this gen after Witcher 3. (2 Hours ago)
@AndreasZ94: i hit 200 hours at around 92% in RDR2. Funny thing the stats doesn't even count many stranger missions (for example for 100% you need only 10 of them) and other optional stuff. (2 Hours ago)
In RDR2 a horse died on a main road, every time I past it the carcass was more rotten. Now there are just bones. (5 Hours ago)
