Darksiders has been a console staple for nearly a decade after the first game was released in 2019. Now, in Darksiders Genesis you can choose to play either War or his brother Strife, and head into combat side by side in two player cooperative mode. The story takes place before the events of the original game when Lucifer, the enigmatic and deceptive demon king, plots to upset the Balance by granting power to master demons throughout Hell. If you are a melee type of gamer, War is your (gauntlet) left-hand.
The youngest of the Four Horseman, War’s age is no indication of his experience on the battleground. He has battled countless enemies with his furious weapon Chaoseater and the protection of his impervious armor. Always by his side is Ruin, War’s phantom steed. War was wrongly framed by Abaddon for starting the Apocalypse too soon and was imprisoned for over one hundred years by The Charred Council. Well, at least he has beautiful long and white hair. Without split ends.
Darksiders Genesis is an action/adventure hack-n-slash that tears its way through hordes of demons, angels, and everything in-between on its way to Hell and back with guns blazing and swords swinging. Genesis gives players their first look at the world of Darksiders before the events of the original game, as well as introduces the horseman Strife.
The game features the playable Horseman Strife for the first time and the ability to switch between the powerful swordsman War and Strife instantly in frenetic, single-player gameplay which allows for not only replayability but dynamic play. In addition to the single player, you can explore the world of Darksiders in two-player cooperative mode.
In Darksiders Genesis, you can also experience a brand new story campaign that takes place before the original Darksiders, exploring the origin of the Seven Seals. And of of course you can grow in strength and power by collecting items, abilities, weapon enhancements, creature cores and more.
Darksiders Genesis will release on PC, PlayStation4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia later in 2019. Pre-order here after watching the trailer below.
