Darksiders Genesis Launches February 2020 on Xbox One

By Sean Carey,
The upcoming top-down, hack n slash spin-off Darksiders Genesis, is coming to consoles on February 14, 2020, with PC and Stadia players getting the game two months beforehand.


The game takes place before the events of Darksiders and has the two Horsemen Strife and War hunting down master demons throughout Hell who have been given power by the demon king, Lucifer. Players will be able to switch between Strife with his pistols and War who uses a sword freely. The game can also be tackled co-operatively, with each player playing as either Strife or War.

    This. I wish they could fix DSII (360) achievements, but ultimately, it doesn't matter. I love these games!

    Curious, whys that? If the game is in fact a good game, are you saying you wouldnt play it simply because a cheevo doesnt unlock?

    No Strife pre-dates Cayde-6 friendo you got it backwards by 7ish years.

    Over a 2 1/2 min trailer for 20 seconds of gameplay?! Hate that crap.

    Completely different developer. This one has only made Battlechasers Nightwar so far which I don't think had any glitched cheevos.

    Fun fact, Airship Syndicate is owned and led by the guy who did the art for Battlechasers and Darksiders games.

    I see. I was mainly referring to the style and humorous tones of Strife in this clip. Not chronological birthdays.
