Disappointing Darksiders 3 Reviews: No Horse Gameplay

Following the news around Darksiders 3 has been a rollercoaster for The Mane Quest:

After some initial concerns about the lack of horse information in the game’s promotional videos and screenshots, we finally got not only a reveal of the horse’s name and design, but a full trailer focused on the horse Rampage and its rider Fury waiting out in the desert for the game’s release.

Now that the game is out and early reviews are available, the news have turned to disappointment again in the horse department:

An article from German PC gaming outlet PCGames.de reports that the Horse With No Name trailer is misleading:

The actual game contains the horse only in a few cutscenes. There is no horse-related gameplay and no riding mechanics in Darksiders III.

At this point, I would still like to review Darksiders III to confirm these facts and to see and judge the in-universe explanation for why our latest apocalyptic rider has lost her mount, but this disappointing update has drastically reduced my urgency to play the game.

Darksiders III has been released for Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 27th 2018.
