Darksiders Genesis is Coming Later This Year

Fans might feel some strife towards the new Darksiders Genesis.

Yesterday, THQ Nordic and Airship Syndicate unveiled the very first top-down shooter in the Darksiders franchise. Darksiders Genesis is scheduled for release on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia later this year.

In Darksiders Genesis, the fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse, Strife, is called to save human-kind from destruction. Humankind can’t take care of itself? What else is new? Although it’s different from previous Darksiders titles, this latest addition will still feature intense combat, exploration and puzzle solving as well as epic boss battles.

The biggest difference between Genesis and the original Darksiders games is the top-down perspective. This new perspective will allow players a different view of the battlefield than what they’re used to.

Look out for more news on Darksiders Genesis during and after E3 later this month. If you happen to be attending E3, you can get hands on with Genesis yourself by visiting the THQ Nordic booth on the show floor.
