The PC pre-order campaign for Darksiders Genesis has kicked off today, with THQ Nordic and Airship Syndicate releasing a new trailer as well as announcing the game’s official launch date.
Featuring the debut of the fourth and final horseman, Strife, Darksiders Genesis is the first entry in the Darksiders franchise to have two-player co-op mode. Whether gamers enjoy couch-co-op or online co-op modes, they may fight together with Strife and his brother, fellow horseman War. Solo players can alternate between Strife and War on the fly, allowing them to take make use of Strife’s ranged and War’s melee attacks whenever one or the other might be more advantageous. Both characters have special attack meters that must build up, and when activated temporarily turns them into a gargantuan creature, capable of leaving swaths of epic destruction in its wake.
An action/adventure rampage that tears its way through hordes of demons, angels, and everything in between, Darksiders Genesis gives players their first look at the world of Darksiders before the events of the original game. Blasting angels and demons as the gunslinging Strife, fans can explore the origin of the Seven Seals through a brand new story campaign. Solo players will enjoy frenetic, fast-paced gameplay as they swap between swordsman War and his brother. Growing in strength and power, they will collect items, abilities, weapon enhancements, and more.
Interested readers can check out the new trailer below, featuring Strife having a good old scuffle with Malgros the Defiler.
Darksiders Genesis is in development now for PC, Google Stadia, and all current generation console platforms. The highly anticipated top-down action adventure game launches for PC and Google Stadia on December 5, 2019, while console players must wait a little longer. Console versions of the title will release on Valentines Day, February 14, 2020.
