Following the success of the three Darksiders games by THQ Nordic, a new game will be coming soon as it now tackles the story of STRIFE, the fourth and final horseman, in Darksiders Genesis.
With E3 2019 happening next week, THQ Nordic will unveil more information and gameplay footage. “Darksiders Genesis kicks off a completely fresh direction for the Darksiders franchise, including a new gameplay style, the introduction of STRIFE – the fourth and final horseman – and so much more,” said Joe Madureira, co-creator of Darksiders and CEO of Airship Syndicate. “The team at Airship is very eager to get Darksiders Genesis into the hands of fans at next week’s E3 show in Los Angeles!”
Here’s a brief overview of the game, via THQ Nordic:
In Darksiders Genesis, the fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse STRIFE is called upon to save humankind from certain destruction at the hands of Lucifer. True to its roots, Darksiders Genesis will feature intense combat, exploration, puzzle-solving, epic boss battles and serpent holes from heaven to hell. The game marks the first, full-scale Darksiders adventure played from the top-down perspective.
After going through the story of Apocalypse, Death, and Fury, THQ Nordic will now be exploring the story of STRIFE, the fourth apocalypse. Fans who have played previous entry may have seen him but never knew a story behind him.
Darksiders Genesis will be released for PS4, Switch, Xbox One, and PC. More information are expected to come out next week. Stay tuned for our coverage soon.
