THQ Nordic released the latest trailer for the Darksiders spin-off game – Darksiders Genesis.
Darksiders Genesis is a Diablo-style top-down RPG spin-off set before the events of the first Darksiders game. The new trailer introduces War, the Rider of the Red Horse, the youngest of the Four Horsemen. In the game, players will be able to choose between War or his brother Strife.
War, the Rider of the Red Horse, is both honorable and savage. The youngest of the Four Horseman, but his age is no indication of his experience on the battleground. He has battled countless enemies with his furious weapon Chaoseater and the protection of his impervious armor. Always by his side is Ruin, War’s phantom steed.
Ruin is both mighty and graceful with its blackened coat and fiery hooves and mane. War was wrongly framed by Abaddon for starting the Apocalypse too soon and was imprisoned for over one hundred years by The Charred Council. Well, at least he has beautiful long and white hair. Without split ends.
About Darksiders Genesis
In Darksiders Genesis you can choose to play either War or his brother Strife, and head into combat side by side in two player cooperative mode.
The story takes place before the events of the original game when Lucifer, the enigmatic and deceptive demon king, plots to upset the Balance by granting power to master demons throughout Hell. If you are a melee type of gamer, War is your (gauntlet) left-hand
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 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 darkness before the events of the original game, as well as introduces the Horseman strife.
