Amazon leaks the new Darksiders game, to be called Darksiders Genesis, first screenshots

Amazon has just leaked the new Darksiders game that THQ Nordic will reveal in the next couple of days. This new Darksiders game is called Darksiders Genesis, will feature an isometric viewpoint, and its first screenshots have surfaced.

Darksiders Genesis will be 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 aims to give players their first look at the world of Darksiders before the events of the original game, as well as introduces the horseman STRIFE.

Here is the game’s description according to its Amazon listing.

“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.”

As said, we expect THQ Nordic to officially reveal Darksiders Genesis in the next couple of days. Right now, the game has a December 31st placeholder release date on Amazon so we are not certain whether it’s coming this year or in 2020.
