Today THQ Nordic announced their second game before E3 starts and it’s a new installment in the Darksiders franchise called Genesis. THQ also gave some more info and a teaser trailer. Darksiders Genesis is developed by Airship Syndicate and is a spin-off of the mainline Darksiders series. It will be released later this year for PS4, Xbox One (including Xbox One X), Nintendo Switch, PC, and Google Stadia.
Genesis is a top-down action-RPG in the vein of Diablo, in which you’ll dungeon-crawl your way to victory, killing monsters and collecting loot.
You’ll get to play as a new Horseman of the Apocalypse, Strife. According to THQ, Strife “is called upon to save humankind from certain destruction at the hands of Lucifer” and Genesis will feature “intense combat, exploration, puzzle-solving, epic boss battles and serpent holes from heaven to hell.”
