Darksiders Genesis: 'Introducing War' Trailer Released
Darksiders Genesis looks incredibly promising, taking the Darksiders action-adventure gameplay and flipping it into a 3/4 top down perspective with tons of enemies to dispatch, bosses to destroy, and loot to….wait that sounds a lot like Diablo, doesn’t it?
Regardless of the influences, Darksiders Genesis looks like it’ll be a blast and part of that is getting more backstory on War, the Horseman of the Apocalypse who started the series by getting framed in the original Darksiders. With Genesis set prior to the original game, players will play as both War and his brother Strife – who favors more of a ranged approach to combat.
Check out the press release below:
Darksiders Genesis: Introducing War – Rider of the Red Horse
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.
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.
Darksiders Genesis will release on PC, PlayStation®4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch™ and Google Stadia later this year. Pre-order here: https://darksiders.com/order-
