Darksiders Genesis official artwork and logo

After Darksiders 3 ended up being a success, it was fairly obvious that Darksiders 4 will be following at some point in the future in order to tell the story of the final horseman - Strife. However, what might come as quite a surprise is that not only has Strife's game arrived far sooner than anyone could've expected, but that it's also a top-down, hack and slash spin-off with an option for co-op!

While that description can usually be read as "Diablo clone", it doesn't exactly apply here as the newly released Darksiders Genesis is pretty much a Darksiders game, just with a slightly different playstyle. You'll still be exploring the world in search of secrets, solving a variety of puzzles in order to open up new areas, collecting ability upgrades to help you smash through enemies, and naturally, beating up an assortment of demons and angels.

You can get a pretty good idea of what all of this looks like, as well as what Darksiders Genesis plays like, through one of the recent trailers. Have a gander:

If this has piqued your curiosity and you're now eager to learn more, you should head on over to either Steam or the official website. Have fun, and if you're planning to buy it, make sure to check out the co-op mode as it's a definite highlight of Darksiders Genesis!
