Darksiders Genesis for Nintendo Switch, Diablo RPG action

The rumors have been building for months, and now it’s finally official: Darksiders Genesis is a real video game that exists. It comes courtesy of THQ Nordic and series developer Airship Syndicate, but it’s not what we expected! It’s a top-down RPG that plays similarly to Diablo and will release for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam, and Stadia. The game is a prequel to previous Darksiders games, and IGN has the reveal teaser trailer:

For a game in the Diablo style, it seems like there is a fair bit of style and drama to the action. Here is the official description for Darksiders Genesis that is making the rounds:

From the dawn of creation, The Council has maintained the Balance across existence. Carrying out their orders are The Horsemen, Nephilim (powerful beings spawned from the unnatural union of angels and demons) who have pledged themselves to the Council and been granted immense power. However, this power came at a tragic cost: the Horsemen were ordered to use their newfound strength to wipe out the rest of their kind. What followed was a bloody battle on Eden where the Horsemen, obeying the will of the Council, annihilated the Nephilim. 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.

  • War and Strife have been given a new assignment.
  • Lucifer has been plotting to grant power to master demons throughout Hell.
  • War and Strife must hunt down these masters.
  • Fight your way through a tangled, demonic conspiracy that threatens to forever upset the Balance and unravel all of creation.

There is no release window yet, but the game will be playable at E3 2019. Let us know what you make of this revelation!
