THQ Nordic and Airship Syndicate have announced the latest entry in the Darksiders series following 2018’s Darksiders III. It is also one of the first games confirmed for Google’s Stadia game streaming platform. Darksiders Genesis is apparently a spinoff of the main series.
It has been described to be a Diablo-style top-down RPG, where you’ll hack and slash your way through dungeons and monsters, collecting loot along the way. Sounds like a good time if you ask me.
The game will feature “intense combat, exploration, puzzle-solving, epic boss battles and serpent holes from heaven to hell,” according to THQ. You will play as Strife, a Horseman of the Apocalypse who tries to save the human race from the threat of Lucifer.
Along with Google Stadia, Darksiders Genesis will also be available on the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC (on Steam) when it arrives some time later this year. We don’t have a formal date or pre-order information just yet as it has not been revealed, though it’ll be playable at E3 this week. This should be a very fun game and one that fans of the franchise are looking forward too. Hopefully, we will get a date soon.
