Darksiders 3 Post Release DLC Announced By THQ Nordic
When it arrives later next month, THQ Nordic Darksiders III will offer a different side of the Apocalypse, this time told from the perspective of Fury, one of the four Horsemen. She’ll have quite the compelling tale on her hands with the main game, but the publisher has announced that they’re adding onto it with some forthcoming downloadable content.
The official description only states that she will fight wave after wave of enemies, but it is not yet known if the waves will be endless. She will have a chance to unlock “new rewards and items” but no specifics have been given and THQ Nordic didn’t reveal the criteria for unlocking them.
Meanwhile, Keepers of the Void will see the return of Vulgrim, who offers Fury a quest to travel to the Serpent Holes in order to put an end “to an ancient threat that resides there”. This DLC pack will focus more on the thinking game, rather than ploughing through waves of enemies as the description states “Serpent Holes are riddled with new puzzles”.
Combat side of gameplay isn’t relegated though, as Keepers of the Void will also introduce “enemies eager to test Fury’s abilities”, who are presumably creatures not encountered in vanilla game. There is slightly more detail on this DLC pack, as Fury can unlock an “all new weapon from the Hollows” and the main prize has a name – The Abyssal Armour.
The Crucible: Fury’s presence has been requested by a strange entity wishing to test her skills in battle. Never one to back down from a challenge, Fury accepts the invitation and gains access to a location known only as the Crucible. Here Fury will fight wave after wave of enemies, competing for a chance to unlock new rewards and items.
Keepers of the Void: On a quest from Vulgrim, Fury must travel into the Serpent Holes to remove an ancient threat that resides there. The Serpent Holes are riddled with new puzzles and enemies eager to test Fury’s abilities. If Fury prevails, she will unlock all new weapon from the Hollows, as well as the biggest prize of them all: The Abyssal Armor.
There is currently no pricing on either of these DLC packs, but both will be included in the Deluxe Edition, which currently costs $69,99 / €69,99 / ~£61,30 which is not that much compared to the standard edition’s price which stands at $59,99 / €59,99 / £52.49.
