Darksiders: Genesis will be developed by Airship Syndicate (who is developer of Battle Chasers: Nightwar) and be a Diablo-style action game. The game will tell before the events of original Darksiders game. The game'll also give a chance to play as fourth Horseman, Strife. Gamers saw the Strife in the Darksiders 3 and now he will be a playable character in Darksiders: Genesis along with his brother War.
We can learn some information about story of the game from Amazon's description;
“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.”
Darksiders: Genesis will be released for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia. What do you think about the Darksiders: Genesis?
