Three of the Biblical Horsemen have headlined games of their own, and now it’s Strife’s turn. But the last will also be a big departure for the series.
Getting the band back together
Darksiders has been a pretty interesting series, all things considered. All three of the previous games in the set have varied to a degree from one another. This fourth title, revealed today, is the most unique one yet. Darksiders Genesis totally turns the formula on its head, moving the DS universe into the isometric action/RPG arena.
It also stars the final Horseman, Strife.
In Darksiders Genesis, the fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse STRIFE is called upon to save humankind from certain destruction at the hands of Lucifer. True to its roots, Darksiders Genesis will feature intense combat, exploration, puzzle-solving, epic boss battles and serpent holes from heaven to hell. The game marks the first, full-scale Darksiders adventure played from the top-down perspective.THQ Nordic press release
“Darksiders Genesis kicks off a completely fresh direction for the Darksiders franchise, including a new gameplay style, the introduction of STRIFE – the fourth and final horseman – and so much more,” said Joe Madureira, co-creator of Darksiders and CEO of Airship Syndicate. “The team at Airship is very eager to get Darksiders Genesis into the hands of fans at next week’s E3 show in Los Angeles!”Joe Madureira
