Darksiders Genesis Unleashes War in Hellish Gameplay Trailer

Darksiders Genesis

War, one of the two playable characters in Darksiders Genesis, has been unveiled in a hellish gameplay trailer.

The hack-and-slash teaser showcases brutal melee combat, which has become synonymous with previous Darksiders games.

However, the main difference to note is that the general gameplay, artistic design, and aerial camera angles are reminiscent of Diablo games. This change reflects the spin-off nature of this new entry as a top-down ARPG.

The game’s narrative is set before the events of the original game when Lucifer, the demon king, plots to upset the Balance by granting power to master demons throughout Hell.

OnlySP’s Michael Cripe delved further into the new direction of Darksiders in his preview of the upcoming title, calling it ” a welcomed take on a franchise that was beginning to wear thin.”

Darksiders Genesis is set for release this year on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, Stadia, and Xbox One.
