Always thoughts that Darksiders would work brilliantly as a top-down action adventure? Yep, THQ Nordic and Airship Syndicate agree, and that is exactly how Darksiders Genesis will be found running when it releases later this year.
Coming to Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC and Google Stadia later in 2019, for the first time in the history of the franchise we are seeing Darksiders go top-down, pushing things in an entirely new direction. And what’s more, should you be at E3 2019, you’ll find the game playable at the THQ Nordic booth #823 in the South Hall.
So what will we be getting? Well, 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 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!”
