Darksiders Genesis is winding its way to the first half of its split launch, with PC and Google Stadia versions releasing December 5th, 2019, and they’ve just released a new trailer to spotlight new character Strife.
The trailer, split between cinematic and gameplay, showcases a very different playstyle than the one sported by Strife’s brother, War. The ranged-heavy offensive output will allow players who prefer that style to stick mostly to Strife during the game, which allows gamers to switch between the two at will and supports two-player co-op – both local and online.
Here’s the press release:
Darksiders Genesis: Introducing Strife – Rider of the White Horse
Vienna, Austria and Austin, Texas, November 27th, 2019 – May we introduce you to Strife?
One… Two Three.
Strife, the Rider of the White Horse, is both impulsive and witty, true to the motto “Shoot first, ask questions later” or “Two Guns, one Horseman”.
He is the one who has blood on his boots on a pretty much constant basis. He fought countless enemies with his two best friends, Mercy and Redemption and the protection of his impenetrable armor. Always by his side is Mayhem, Strife’s phantom steed.
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 (couch co-op trash talk, but also online). 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.
Darksiders Genesis will release on PC and Google Stadia on December 5th 2019, and PlayStation®4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch
