THQ Nordic has announced a brand new entry in the Darksiders franchise with the announcement of Darksiders Genesis. It’s not your typical Darksiders game, though, as this one takes a different direction to past games.
Darksiders Genesis is a top-down shooter and it’s coming to PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Google Stadia, though no release date has been mentioned at the time of writing. We do have a fancy CGI trailer, however, and it even gives us a glimpse at the game in action.
“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!”
Darksiders Genesis features the fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse, STRIFE. It is he who is called upon to save us meager mortal humans from Lucifer’s nefarious plans to end humanity. Just like the rest of the games in the series, Darksiders Genesis will feature balls-to-the-wall combat, exploration, boss battles and puzzle-solving, but in a top-down perspective.
For those wanting to go hands-on with Darksiders Genesis before release, the game will be playable at E3 2019 at THQ Nordic’s booth. If you’re going to be in attendance, you can find THQ Nordic at booth #823 in the Los Angeles Convention Centre’s South Hall.
