It’s been almost a year since we got Darksiders III, and my demon hunting senses are tingling. Why is that? Doom Eternal got delayed, so it can’t be the return of the Doom Slayer… Oooh, it’s Darksiders Genesis! Let me check the wires quickly… of course. THQ Nordic and Airship Syndicate (makers of the excellent Battle Chasers: Nightwar) have just revealed that Darksiders Genesis will launch for PC on December 5th.
Here’s a trailer with some Strife action:
Darksiders Genesis is an action/adventure 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.
–Blast angels and demons as the gunslinging Horseman Strife, playable for the first time
–Swap between the powerful swordsman War and Strife instantly in frenetic, single-player gameplay
–Explore the epic world of Darksiders and wreak havoc with a friend in two-player cooperative mode
–Experience a brand new story campaign that takes place before the original Darksiders, exploring the origin of the Seven Seals
–Grow in strength and power as you collect items, abilities, weapon enhancements, creature cores and more
Darksiders Genesis is now up for preorder on Steam with a 15% off pre-purchase discount.
