THQ Nordic announced Darksiders Genesis, first appearance at E3 2019
Darksiders Genesis was announced by THQ Nordic. A couple of early leaks have caused thrills among fans, and luckily enough, everything was followed with a proper announcement. Darksiders Genesis will have its proper destination, this year’s E3, discovering a lot more about the game, including a playable version. With that being said, we have Darksiders Genesis on the verge of coming.
You will get the chance to play as a new Horseman of the Apocalypse, with a mission to save humankind from destruction and cut Lucifer on his intentions. It will combine more features than first thought, such as combat, puzzles, epic boss fights and more. What’s even more exciting is that Darksiders Genesis is expected to be playable at E3 2019, granting a room for players to experience this masterpiece at an early stage.
The official Darksiders Genesis game description has been clear and still persistent on Amazon, in which Lucifer pretty much is up to something new, enlarging the wave of demons in Hell. Below you can find the official product 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.
It is expected to be first discovered at this year’s E3, which was also confirmed by IGN. Knowing that we’re getting closer to the biggest entertainment expo event, we’re bound to receiving even bigger and more titles than its initial discovery.
Below you can watch its official announcement trailer.
What do you think about Darksiders Genesis? Will it be a bigger narrative that will cause a better player immersion? Being a spin-off of the main series, it surely remains to be seen, and we’re looking forward to it.
