THQ Nordic has dropped a raucous new gameplay trailer for Darksiders III, showcasing Fury in all her demon-swatting, horse-riding glory. This time around it’s all about Force Fury, a hollow form of the Darksiders 3 protagonist bestowed upon her by the Hollow Lord.

These ‘Hollows’ are special powers that can be unlocked for Fury as players progress through Darksiders 3, evolving her powers and weaponry. The Hollow Lord grants these abilities to Fury in order to help her lead the Horsemen of the Apocalypse in their efforts to defeat the Seven Deadly Sins.

The trailer doesn’t do a great job of explaining it, to be honest, but from the sounds of things, the Hollows will represent different fighting styles. There are a total of four Hollows to be unlocked in Darksiders III, and they can be switched between them on the fly in order to adapt to specific enemies or chain together combos.

Darksiders 3 is still on target for a November 27th, 2018, launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Can it hope to emulate the greatness of the original two Darksiders titles? Or are you wary now it’s the hands of a new developer like Gunfire Games?
