Despite being leaked by Amazon, THQ Nordic and Airship Syndicate pushed ahead with the E3 reveal of the next chapter in the Darksiders series; Darksiders Genesis. Moving away from the franchise’s action-adventure roots, Darksiders Genesis is an ARPG in the vein of Diablo. It also introduces fans to the fourth horseman; Strife.
Coming to Google Stadia, PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One, Darksiders Genesis will be available in 2019.
Joe Madureira, co-creator of Darksiders and CEO of Airship Syndicate said;
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.
In this fourth game in the series, Strife is tasked with saving mankind from Lucifer. It’s the first game in the series to be played from a top-down perspective and is the first time a gunslinging Horseman has been featured.
Darksiders Genesis launches in 2019.
