Darksiders Genesis Takes the Franchise In a New Direction

THQ Nordic has revealed Darksiders Genesis, an all new spin-off that switches up the formula to offer fans of the franchise something different. Come inside to check out the reveal trailer!

The new Darksiders game is going to be a bit of a departure from the previous third-person action games. This time around it’s going to be a top-down action RPG, similar to the Diablo games to tell an all new story:

“Darksiders Genesis kicks off a completely fresh direction for the Darksiders franchise, including a new gameplay style, the introduction of STRIFE – the fourth and final horseman – and so much more,” said Joe Madureira, co-creator of Darksiders and CEO of Airship Syndicate. “The team at Airship is very eager to get Darksiders Genesis into the hands of fans at next week’s E3 show in Los Angeles!”

In Darksiders Genesis, the fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse STRIFE is called upon to save humankind from certain destruction at the hands of Lucifer. True to its roots, Darksiders Genesis will feature intense combat, exploration, puzzle-solving, epic boss battles and serpent holes from heaven to hell. The game marks the first, full-scale Darksiders adventure played from the top-down perspective. 

Darksiders Genesis will arrive later this year for the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia.
