Release Dates Revealed and New Trailer for Darksiders Genesis

Announced just a little while ago (at E3 June), Darksiders Genesis wasn’t entirely what I was looking for in the next Darksiders game, particularly the first that we get to play as Strife. But perhaps I was being a tad hasty, and the more footage and info I see, the more I realise that this spin off was a pretty good idea.

Battling alongside his fellow horseman, and first game protagonist, War, Genesis is a top-down shooter built with co-op in mind. While Strife specialises in gun play, War is a strong melee character – and each, one would assume, will have unique abilities surrounding their individual styles.

But that’s enough of a recap (read our first article here) as the news for this article concerns a release date and new trailer.

The trailer features mainly a cinematic of Strife having banter with a demon before blowing its three heads off. It’s good to see the flair isn’t missing from these characters and cut scenes, despite its spin-off status, and Strife looks like he might be a more humorous character than his more stern brothers and sister.

It’s a cool little trailer, though doesn’t offer much more than a glimpse at gameplay. But what it does show looks quite clean and exciting. We see the two of them riding mounts, solving a puzzle, and lots and lots of particle effects.

The release date for this has been touted as the 5th December of this year for PC, but unfortunately for console users they will have to wait till 14th February 2020.

I started gaming with the release of the PS1 - Crash Bandicoot and Ridge Racer Revolution being the first 'real' games I ever set eyes on - and have been enthralled with the medium ever since. I particularly love strategy and horror games, the sort offered by titles such as Total War and Silent Hill, though I also have a soft spot for a good RPG. I studied Journalism at university in the hopes of progressing into writing about games. You'll most likely find me covering indie games as I'm always on the look out for interesting little titles, and generally I stick to the PC and PS4 platforms. I'm not interested in MMOs or really any kind of online game, and I have an unusual and frankly worryingly expensive obsession with collecting gaming guide books, but aside from that I like to think I'm a well rounded average gamer.
