It looks like the third "Darksiders" title could finally make the fourth Horseman more than just a playable character. Fans have not yet given up hope on "Darksiders 3" and they are hoping that the game will focus on the powerful Fury, the only female Horseman in the series. So does this mean that Strife will be cast aside for a character who isn't even playable in the first two titles? And will Nordic finally announce the third game at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) next year?

'Darksiders 3' Could Be About Fury, Not Strife? Nordic Finally Makes Fourth Horseman Playable Lead Character?

Remember how the first two "Darksiders" titles was all about one particular Horseman? The first game followed War while the second one put the focus on Death. GameSkinny believes that "Darksiders 3" could be about Strife, the third Horseman who happens to be a skilled marksman with his two pistols. However, there are also speculations that Fury will be the main character in the next game. 

GamenGuide has previously reported on the possibility that "Darksiders 3" will have two protagonists, wherein Strife will share the limelight with Fury. This certainly seems like an awesome idea until some players point out that Strife's skill set could force the new game to turn into a third person shooter. A few fans state that Nordic would be better off with Fury, who uses a whip and promises plenty of acrobatic action. This way, there doesn't need to any drastic changes in the gameplay in time for the title's possible debut at E3 2017.
