Darksiders Genesis Video Game
- genre: Action
- developer: Airship Syndicate
- publisher: THQ Nordic / Nordic Games
- platform: PC, PS4, XONE, Switch
Spin-off of Darksiders series, realized in the form of an isometric action game with RPG elements and offering the possibility to play in 2 people on a single screen.
Darksiders Genesis is a prequel to the Darksiders series, developed by the Airship Syndicate studio. We are talking about a team with a portfolio of Battle Chasers: Nighwar, whose members include the creators of the first two installments of the cycle. The title is a representative of the hack'n'slash genre and was published by THQ Nordic, the company responsible for the brand.
The action of Darksiders Genesis takes place before the events presented in the first part of the series. The Council, caring for balance in the world, gave the Horsemen of the Apocalypse powerful powers, but in return they were to murder the remaining Nephilims (descendants of angels and demons), which led to a bloody battle in Eden. Two of them, War and Strife, were given another task after this order was carried out. This time, their goal is to hunt down demonic masters called by Lucifer and stop the demonic ruler from disrupting the balance for ever.
In Darksiders Genesis, the action was shown from a bird's eye view. During the game we travel through climatic locations, fight with hordes of opponents and overcome various obstacles. As we progress, we're gaining more and more powerful equipment and upgrading existing equipment, as well as developing protagonists' skills. It should be noted that heroes differ not only in appearance and character, but also in fighting style. While War prefers to eliminate enemies with white weapons, Strife kills adversaries from a safe distance with two guns.
In Darksiders Genesis you can play alone (in which case you can switch seamlessly between heroes) or in multiplayer mode (via the Internet or on a common screen).
Darksiders Genesis has colorful, three-dimensional graphics maintained in cartoon style known from previous games under this sign. The pace of the struggle is intensified by the dynamic soundtrack.
