Darksiders 3 was just recently announced, but there are ready 12 minutes of pre-alpha gameplay footage for you to enjoy, judge, or be completely indifferent to. Watch them in the video above and find out which is it.
The gameplay footage comes to us thanks to IGN First, and shows Horseman of the Apocalypse Fury fighting various demons and creatures. Towards the end of the video we see Sloth, the laziest of the Seven Deadly Sins and one of the bosses in the game. Apparently, all the Seven Sins will appear in the game in some form or another, as they will be the main antagonists.
Sloth is a green, bloated and frankly kinda disgusting creature that looks like a hybrid between a crab and fly. It is not to be confused with the cute, cuddly and only somewhat green sloth you might have seen on the Internet or Zootopia. That’s actually a good thing, since Fury ends repeatedly hit the ugly creature with her spiked whip.
Darksiders 3 is currently in development at Gunfire Games, a relatively new studio comprised of many former Vigil Games personnel. Vigial Games are the studio responsible for the two previous Darksiders title, by the way.
After watching the video, continue below to see some pre-alpah screenshots of Fury, a couple of enemies (including Sloth) and a few environments. The game will be released for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2018.
