Darksiders III is an action role-playing game video game developed by THQ Nordic. In the game, the player will return to an apocalyptic Earth assuming the role of Fury, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins.

The third Darksiders game changes a lot from its combat to its progression in comparison to its predecessors. The players still controls the main character from a third-person perspective, and fight enemies using Fury's whip and Hollow weapons acquired throughout the game.

The combat is no longer combo-focused with varied ground and aerial moves, rooms full of enemies and a hit counter. Opting instead for a slower, grounded and methodical combat focusing a lot on Fury's dodge and counters. Combat scenarios are not "gated" anymore, so the player can opt between eliminating or pass through enemies that are spread throughout the map.

The leveling system and buffs are now a central part of the gameplay. Enemies drop Souls when killed, similar to the first Darksiders, but unlike the first game now the Souls drop every time the player dies. The Souls that are dropped off take a form of a glowing blue sphere, and placed by the game's system somewhere near where the player's last death was, the souls can be recovered by hitting this glowing sphere.

Souls are used as a form of currency, but also an integral part of the leveling system. Upon reaching a checkpoint the player can talk to Vulgrim, a certain amount o souls can be traded by a point to be spent in either health, damage, or arcane damage upgrades. There are also Runes that can be equipped to give perks to any weapon, runes can be upgraded upon talking to Ulthane provided the proper materials that can be collected by exploring different areas in the game. The game's difficulty is scaled every time Fury defeats one of the Sins, all enemies in the game are buffed to match her level.
