Darksiders Genesis Transforms the Series into a Diablo-Like Action RPG

Darksiders Genesis is a Diablo-like aRPG that follows the horseman Strife and is coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia.

There are announcements aplenty the week before E3 and THQ Nordic is throwing their hat into the ring with multiple announcements this week. The publisher revealed its plans to unveil three games over the course of three days and today we learned about another one of their games from IGN. As many of us assumed following rumors, Darksiders Genesis was officially revealed. You can check out the reveal trailer which introduces the main character and shows a bit of gameplay below.

Darksiders Genesis is set within the series’ interesting universe, but plays completely differently. While previous Darksiders games played like The Legend of Zelda or Dark Souls, IGN describes this new game as a top down action RPG featuring multiplayer similar to Diablo. The game is coming to every current-gen platform in late 2019, including Google Stadia. Darksiders Genesis will follow another Horseman, Strife, who THQ Nordic says “is called upon to save humankind from certain destruction at the hands of Lucifer.” Hopefully, this game will bring the Darksiders series one step closer to wrapping up what happened at the end of the first game.

If you missed yesterday’s announcement, THQ and Purple Lamp Studios are remaking a classic Spongebob game with Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated. Unlike Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated, Darksiders Genesis will be making an appearance at E3 2019. Darksiders even has a panel of its own during E3 Coliseum next week, so THQ Nordic will probably delve into the game even further then.

Look forward to DualShockers’ coverage of the game as we will be checking it out at the show this year. Darksiders Genesis is coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia in 2019.
