Darksiders III got a new gameplay trailer today, showcasing a new set of obstacles in the way of Fury on their path for vengeance. That new challenge is the Charred Council.
The Charred Council is an ancient and powerful group of otherworldly overlords that act as mediators between the forces of chaos vying for power. They’re essentially a stop-gap solution to the forces of good and evil conspired to put in place to prevent mutual destruction through endless war. Of course, that’s only going to work for so long, especially once Fury starts ripping everything to bits in Darksiders III.
The death of the Charred Council, probably at the hands of Fury, will signal a true End War, which is supposed to bring balance to the forces of good and evil, and the universe at large. Why do I get the feeling that THQ Nordic is going for an Anakin Skywalker style twist with this game?
Nonetheless, it’s nice to see more lore and backstory being built up for Darksiders III. I just wish more games did this with their promotional runs prior to release.
Check out more about the game if you want, there’s the Gamescom 2018 trailer, as well as the original announcement trailer. You might also want to have a gander at the newly released trailer showcasing the forms of Fury and their weapons.
Darksiders III is slated to release next month on November 27 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Check out the Force Hollow trailer for the game down below.
