Darksiders Genesis Gets Pricey – But Very Limited – Nephilim Edition
The hype machine for the upcoming Darksiders Genesis is starting to spool up after the shocking reveal at E3 that it will be a top-down 3/4 perspective action-adventure game that looks a lot like Darksiders and Diablo had a baby.
Despite the change in perspective, it looks like Darksiders Genesis will retain much of the platforming flavour that made past games so much fun, with wall jumps, bomb pods, gliding, and other mechanics already visible in the trailers and gameplay demos. Check out a 24-odd minute gameplay demo of the title here.
It’s not uncommon for games to get special editions, but Darksiders has always taken this to the next level with some truly SPECIAL items included, and Genesis is no different. Buyers of the top-tier Nephilim Edition will get not only the game, a soundtrack, a steelbook and artbook, a statue…but also a board game based on the franchise called Darksiders: The Forbidden Land.
Though it totes a hefty $379 (not clarified just yet whether that’s USD or CAD) price tag, this truly IS a limited edition, with only 5,000 being made.
