'Darksiders Genesis' Launch Dates Announced
Darksiders Genesis, the top-down action-adventure change of pace for the Darksiders franchise, will be arriving on PC and Google Stadia first, with a December 5th, 2019 release date announced today.
Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One gamers will need to wait until February 14th, 2020 to try their hand as the fourth of the Four Horseman, Strife.
I was sold on this one from the first footage. It’s not often a series can jump between genres successfully, or even tries to make that jump, but Airship Syndicate seems to have this nailed.
Here’s the press release:

Darksiders Genesis features the debut of the fourth and final horsemen – STRIFE – who can battle alongside his brother and fellow horsemen WAR in the first ever Darksiders two-player co-op mode. Solo players will be able to alternate between STRIFE and WAR on the fly, taking advantage of STRIFE’s ranged and WAR’s melee style attacks. Both characters can build up a special attack meter that, when activated, temporarily turns them into a colossal creature that leaves epic destruction in its wake.
Darksiders Genesis is currently in development for PC, Google Stadia and all current-gen console platforms. The PC and Google Stadia versions of Darksiders Genesis will release on December 5, 2019. The console versions will release on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2020.
