More On: Darksiders: Genesis

THQ Nordic is pleased and humbled to announce that Darksiders: Genesis is a hit with critics and gamers alike. Mainstream gaming sites are giving the looter-crawler spinoff plenty of praise, and the game has a very positive ranking on Steam user reviews as well. I've always had a soft spot for the sometimes troubled Darksiders franchise and I think a co-op, Diablo-style side game is a great idea for exploring more of the series' mythos and gameplay potential.

Darksiders: Genesis is out now on PC, and will arrive on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on February 14th, 2020.

Vienna, Austria and Austin, December 19, 2019 – Darksiders Genesis has been released 2 weeks ago on December 5th and we at THQ Nordic are humbled by the critics' and the community's reception thus far. It is currently rated "very positive" on Steam by the players and gained a lot of high scores from outlets all over the world. Therefore THQ Nordic can't wait to release the console versions on Valentine's Day 2020!

In Darksiders Genesis, STRIFE can battle alongside his brother and fellow horseman WAR in the first ever Darksiders two-player co-op mode. Solo players will be able to alternate between STRIFE and WAR on the fly, taking advantage of STRIFE’s ranged and WAR’s melee style attacks. In addition, gameplay includes combat atop both horsemen’s fabled steeds: RAMPAGE and MAYHEM. Darksiders Genesis also features the introduction of Creature Cores, a combat system that empowers players to customize their own upgrade system fueled by the enemies they defeat. #togetherthroughhell #GunsNHorses #notalone
