Each of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse in the Darksiders franchise have a unique mount, officially named the Phanton Horses. These mounts vary greatly in appearances, taking forms that match their masters, and are loyal companions to our protagonists during their respective journeys.
We were introduced to War’s horse Ruin in the first Darksiders, and Darksiders 2 got us acquainted with Death’s horse Despair. Now, a new trailer has finally introduced us to Rampage, a black horse with a striking blue mane of fire and lightning bolt lines across his entire body.
Set to a cover of America’s “Horse With no Name”, this beautiful trailer does a very effective job of conveying the deep bond between Fury and Rampage. It shows us the playful relationship that exists between the two and the trust they have in one another. More than that though, and I might be reading too much into this, the trailer gives us a glimpse at what Rampage represents for Fury: companionship during a deeply lonely and isolating journey, that is if the trailer is anything to go by.
Darksiders 3 is set for release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC on 27th November, 2018.
