“Darksiders: Genesis” coming to PC in November, consoles in February
THQ Nordic has announced that Darksiders: Genesis is scheduled to release 5 December for Steam PC, while the console versions will follow early next year – 14 February, to be exact- for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and Giggle Stadia.
Developed by Airship Syndicate, the Darksiders: Genesis is a prequel to the larger Darksiders action/RPG series originally created by Vigil.
You can mull over THQ Nordic’s full breakdown of Darksiders: Genesis below:
From the dawn of creation, THE COUNCIL has maintained the Balance across existence. Carrying out their orders are THE HORSEMEN, Nephilim (powerful beings spawned from the unnatural union of angels and demons) who have pledged themselves to the Council and been granted immense power. However, this power came at a tragic cost: the Horsemen were ordered to use their newfound strength to wipe out the rest of their kind. What followed was a bloody battle on Eden where the Horsemen, obeying the will of the Council, annihilated the Nephilim.
Still reeling from the events on Eden, WAR and STRIFE have been given a new assignment — LUCIFER, the enigmatic and deceptive demon king, has been plotting to upset the Balance by granting power to master demons throughout Hell. War and Strife must hunt down these masters, gather information, and ultimately fight their way through a tangled, demonic conspiracy that threatens to forever upset the Balance and unravel all of creation.
DARKSIDERS: GENESIS is an action/adventure game 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.
