THQ Nordic and Airship Syndicate have announced Darksiders Genesis, a spin-off of the mainline Darksiders series. It will be released later this year for PS4, Xbox One (including Xbox One X), Nintendo Switch, PC, and Google Stadia. No pre-order information or specific release date is available just yet. Genesis is a top-down action-RPG in the vein of Diablo, in which you’ll dungeon-crawl your way to victory, killing monsters and collecting loot.
You’ll get to play as a new Horseman of the Apocalypse, Strife. According to THQ, Strife “is called upon to save humankind from certain destruction at the hands of Lucifer” and Genesis will feature “intense combat, exploration, puzzle-solving, epic boss battles and serpent holes from heaven to hell.” Check out the cinematic teaser trailer at the top of this page.
Darksiders Genesis will be playable at E3 2019 next week, and we’ll have hands-on coverage from the show. We exclusively revealed Darksiders 3 in 2017, and found the final product to be good in our review of it last Fall.
