    Quite the departure from the Darksiders series... Wonder how the lore will play into it. It's not a numbered entry into the series, so I wonder if this is basically a spin off.

    Looks interesting though!

    It seems it is a spinoff since there's a "new horseman" named Strife being introduced. :)

    Every Darksiders game is a departure though.

    Darksiders 1 was a Zelda clone.

    Darksiders 2 (my favorite) was an open world adventure with gear.

    Darksiders 3 was a Souls-like.


    Unlike Darksiders 3, I'm actually excited for this one.

    Though a fan of 1 and 2, 3 got such average reviews that I did not bother. But as I wait for the reviews until I buy no skin of this horseman of the apocalypses nose. :)

    As said above, each game highlights a different genre of game style as each Horseman is a different personification. Personally, understanding I what I was getting into with each one, I liked all of them. Strife being in an ARPG-ish setting suits me fine because the other option would have been a third-person shooter or TPS with cover. Being FPS just doesn't fit the overall vibe of the series. The characters are made to be seen not seen through.

    Looks like they kinda ruined what made the game so great.

    Someone didn’t finish Darksiders 3 tsssk tsssk. Strife is the last of the 4 Horsemen actually, he’s not new.

    'the only way he could nail it any better is if he used a cross.'

    Kyleran on yours sincerely 


    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.

    Ikcin in response to yours sincerely debating whether or not single-player offline MMOs exist...

    Wow. This looks way better than DS3, thank god. DS 1/2 were great for what they were, but they really screwed the pooch with 3 and I'm glad they aren't sticking with that same formula.

    Strife has been mentioned in all previous Darksiders game and even shows up in the 3rd one in some form.
    He's not the main character of genesis, you can play as any of the 4 horse man.
    I am not alone FFS.

    This years E3 is looking pretty good already, I need a new ARPG, I must loot, loot and pillage. Looking forward to it.
    I'm a simple man spoiled from MMOs of the old age.  Looking for a home but deserted.  My heart and time is not worthy for the MMOs of the new age.

    This is a great time to be an ARPG fan in general. We're getting so many of them from so many IPs.

    You also got Strife's gun for War in DS1. He was even mentioned in the first game.

    I'm super excited that it's coming to switch. I find ARPGs a lot more fun with a controller.

    Not to mention this is back with Joe Mad and Airship Syndicate! Keeping an eye on this one!

    By this logic every game released after the first one is a "spin off" as every game has featured a different horseman, this is just the last one they have not used.

    This looks generic.. like Chaosbane. Not an aRPG in my opinion and more arcade game like Victor Vran, Golden Axe or Gauntlet. All good games but not aRPGs.

    I could be wrong but whenever I see that direction arrow showing where your character is facing I'm usually right in assuming it's a beat-em-up. Diablo 3, being a mix of the two genres, has really screwed things up for fans of real aRPGs.

    Hmm....
    Let's see i would say. Can be nice. If not Warhammer:Chaosbane would hover as a "Black Cloud" over my thoughts. We'll see.

    Darksiders having a baby with Diablo?! HELL YES! I'm READY!!!!

    This looks sick! I really hope they actually have good end game content. The universe and art style of Darksiders is perfect for this.

    It's cause usually all these games use the similar art style to D3, even same font for damage numbers, etc. They make it TOO similar. Idk why theyre so scared to make somethinf different looking.
