Darksiders now available for free on Xbox One and Xbox 360 thanks to Xbox Games With Gold

by Neil Watton (neil363)April 1, 2017

It usually comes with a £14.99 price tag, but right now, and for the next couple of weeks, the awesome Darksiders has been stripped of its cost…at least that is if you are an Xbox Live Gold member.

The Xbox Games With Gold scheme is back and now that April is here, it’s time to grab a new game or two. One of the first to be sent for free to all Xbox Live Gold subscribers is Darksiders, the native 360 title that is also making the most of Xbox One Backward Compatibility.

Now, if you’ve never played the game, then we urge you to get involved with War, trying to help him out in his struggle between Heaven and Hell, all whilst he attempts to fight his way out. You’ll find a wonderful, but rather linear, world to explore as War goes on the rampage, trying to conquer Hell’s most terrifying inhabitants, utilising his awesome Chaos Form at every opportunity.

You’ve got until the middle of April 2017 to download Darksiders for free, after which that £14.99 price will be put back in place, and whilst it would be nice to have seen the rematsered Xbox One version appearing for nothing, we’re never going to complain about this hack n slasher.

The Xbox Games Store will be able to sort out your download, whilst our in-depth article looking at the free Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles for April 2017 is well worth a read.

Game Description:

The Horseman cometh. You are WAR! Caught in an epic struggle between Heaven and Hell, the legendary Horseman is left with only one option- to fight his way out. Wielding the fearsome sword Chaoseater, War must carve a bloody trail through Angels and Demons alike to uncover a dangerous truth…one that may bring about the end of mankind. EXPLORE the streets of a hell-ravaged city or ascend crumbling buildings to face horrors in the sky above. CONQUER Hell’s most terrifying monstrosities using a host of supernatural abilities and devastating combat moves. DESTROY your enemies by unleashing the unstoppable power of your Chaos Form! Darksiders. HEADS. WILL. ROLL.

About The Author
Neil Watton (neil363)

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360’s life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One. A massive racing fan, Forza 4 was the daddy of all Xbox titles but Forza Horizon 3 now trumps that. Online first person shooters are my hell….probably because my reactions are so poor, but give me a little Indie title and I’ll be in heaven.
