New Darksiders III In-Game Footage Released from Gunfire Games

Published

 on

THQ Nordic and Gunfire Games have shown off the first Darksiders III gameplay since the game’s announcement last May.

The quality of the new footage suggests that the game is coming along nicely, and Darksiders fans get even  can feel assured by that. Though the clip is only about two minutes long, it highlights some stellar enemy designs, as well as classic Darksiders combat.

The combat appears familiar without seeming stale thanks to new protagonist Fury. Her whip is capable of offering acrobatic techniques, as well as providing this third horseman (following former series heroes War and Death) with a greater range to her attacks.

Not much word is given in the trailer regarding a release date or story information beyond a reminder of the game’s 2018 release target.

In a separate announcement, the studio has revealed that the premise of the game will see Fury battling demons and other creatures on an overrun Earth.

Gunfire Games is comprised of many veterans from the original Darksiders development team, Vigil Games. The upcoming title looks to be in good hands, and the familiar yet different gameplay in this new trailer serves as a nice update for the fans who have some questions.

Darksiders III was originally announced this past May and Gunfire Games seems to have been whipping up something great since then. For more updates on Darksiders III, Gunfire Games, THQ Nordic, or the third horseman, keep up with OnlySP on Twitter and Facebook.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
