Darksiders III is out today on Switch, and to celebrate the occasion, THQ Nordic has shared a launch trailer for the Switch edition of the game. You can check it out below.

Joining the first two games in the series and the spin-off Darksiders GenesisDarksiders III comes with each DLC pack that came out for the original game. Read on for a bit of background on the game’s premise and features.

Players return to an apocalyptic planet Earth in Darksiders III, a hack-n-slash action-adventure where players take on the role of FURY in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins. The Charred Council calls upon FURY to battle from the heights of heaven down through the depths of hell in a quest to restore the balance between good and evil and prove that she is the fiercest of the FOUR HORSEMEN.

FURY is a mage, her form evolving throughout gameplay and with it, her powers and weaponry. The expansive Darksiders III game world is presented as an open-ended, living, free-form planet Earth, dilapidated by war and decay, and overrun by nature. FURY will traverse back and forth between environments, battling other-worldly creatures and unlocking puzzles while advancing the Darksiders story.

As shown in the launch trailer, Darksiders III boasts tons of foreboding creatures to hack and slash and puzzles to unravel. Have you played the game? Have you tried any of the other series releases on Switch? If so, what did you think? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
