Our Dan loves a bit of Dark Souls and a bit of Bloodborne, so imagine my surprise when he burst into the office proclaiming that Darksiders III is the 'hardest game he's ever played'. As it happens, it's not actually the hardest game he's ever played, it just took a bit of getting used to, and he ended up getting quite good at it.
Now, Darksiders III has become one of his most anticipated games of the year (what's left of it), which is one hell of a turnaround. Playing a spiffy new build of Gunfire Games' Fury-ous sequel, we got to grips with the newly-revealed Force Fury Hollow, the second of four Hollow powers that third Horseman Fury will have in her arsenal.
With the Flame Hollow and Force Fury Hollow in our tool kit, we set to work slicing and dicing our way through the post-apocalyptic New York subway, taking the fight to all manner of insectoid beasties, leading into a huge boss battle with another of the Seven Deadly Sins. Packing flaming daggers and a big sledgehammer, Fury is quite the force to be reckoned with.
Check out our gameplay below, then be sure to come back for the next part in which we take on giant green nasty, Sloth. Darksiders III launches for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on 27th November.
