THQ Nordic has released a brand new trailer for Darksiders Genesis that introduces us to War. In Darksiders Genesis you can choose to play either War or his brother Strife, and head into combat side by side in two player cooperative mode.
The story takes place before the events of the original game when Lucifer, the enigmatic and deceptive demon king, plots to upset the Balance by granting power to master demons throughout Hell.
As the press release reads:
“War, the Rider of the Red Horse, is both honorable and savage. The youngest of the Four Horseman, but his age is no indication of his experience on the battleground. He has battled countless enemies with his furious weapon Chaoseater and the protection of his impervious armor. Always by his side is Ruin, War’s phantom steed. Ruin is both mighty and graceful with its blackened coat and fiery hooves and mane. War was wrongly framed by Abaddon for starting the Apocalypse too soon and was imprisoned for over one hundred years by The Charred Council. Well, at least he has beautiful long and white hair. Without split ends.”
Darksiders Genesis marks the first, full-scale Darksiders adventure played from the top-down perspective. The game promises to feature intense combat, exploration, puzzle-solving, epic boss battles and serpent holes from heaven to hell.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
