THQ Nordic Announces Darksiders: Genesis; Spin-Off Title with New Horseman

The Darksiders franchise is one of the most entertaining in the hack-and-slash genre, and it is getting a new entry.

THQ Nordic officially revealed Darksiders Genesis. The title is the latest entry to the franchise, and debuts a completely new horseman. Darksiders Genesis brings players to the period before the original Darksiders titles in an attempt to take down Lucifer.

Still reeling from the events on Eden, War and Strife have been given a new assignment—Lucifer, the enigmatic and deceptive demon king, has been plotting to upset the Balance by granting power to master demons throughout Hell. War and Strife must hunt down these masters, gather information, and ultimately fight their way through a tangled, demonic conspiracy that threatens to forever upset the Balance and unravel all of creation.
Darksiders: Genesis is an action/adventure that tears its way through hordes of demons, angels, and everything in-between on its way to Hell and back with guns blazing and swords swinging. Genesis gives players their first look at the world of Darksiders before the events of the original game, as well as introduces the horseman Strife.
