Darksiders: Genesis E3 2019 News

Darksiders Genesis Gets Over 20 Minutes Of Gameplay

Darksiders Genesis has received a whopping 24 minutes of gameplay footage following its reveal just prior to E3 2019.

Darksiders Genesis Gameplay Looks Hot In Action

Darksiders Genesis is a prequel to the apocalyptic hack-‘n-slash franchise, and is in development at Airship Syndicate. Despite this, a number of developers who worked on Darksiders and Darksiders 2 at Vigil Games are involved in Genesis’ production, so that should please fans of the series who had any concerns about its direction.

It’s not actually a full-on sequel, but rather a prequel that introduces Strife, the fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse, who teams up with brother War to take down Hellish master demons that are being granted power by the deceptive demon king, Lucifer. Unlike the previous Darksiders games, Genesis takes the form of a top-down action title, giving it a distinct whiff of Diablo more than anything.

Darksiders Genesis is due for release later this year for PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and Xbox One. The previous entry in the series, Darksiders 3, arrived only last November for consoles and PC.

Check out out the Darksiders Genesis gameplay video below. A concrete release date for the prequel has yet to be revealed, but we’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything.
