THQ Nordic plans to release Darksiders Genesis on PC and Stadia on December 5th, 2019 and on Xbox One and PlayStation 45 on February 14th 2020. At this time it is unknown if Darksiders Genesis will receive a Nintendo Switch release. 

The game is a top-down action/adventure game from Starship Syndicate, which will allow gamers to challenge hordes of demons, angels and other opponents with both melee and ranged weapons. 

Genesis takes place before the events of the original Darksiders, introducing players to STRIFE, the gunslinging Horseman. Players will be able to switch between Strife and War to instantly change the game's fighting mechanics from a ranged focus to a melee focus in singleplayer mode. Co-op is also available for up to two players. 

Below is Darksiders Genesis' official Strife Cinematic Trailer. 


From the dawn of creation, THE COUNCIL has maintained the Balance across existence. Carrying out their orders are THE HORSEMEN, Nephilim (powerful beings spawned from the unnatural union of angels and demons) who have pledged themselves to the Council and been granted immense power. However, this power came at a tragic cost: the Horsemen were ordered to use their newfound strength to wipe out the rest of their kind. What followed was a bloody battle on Eden where the Horsemen, obeying the will of the Council, annihilated the Nephilim.


Still reeling from the events on Eden, WAR and STRIFE have been given a new assignment -- LUCIFER, the enigmatic and deceptive demon king, has been plotting to upset the Balance by granting power to master demons throughout Hell. War and Strife must hunt down these masters, gather information, and ultimately fight their way through a tangled, demonic conspiracy that threatens to forever upset the Balance and unravel all of creation.

DARKSIDERS: GENESIS is an action/adventure game that tears its way through hordes of demons, angels, and everything in-between on its way to Hell and back with guns blazing and swords swinging. Genesis gives players their first look at the world of DARKSIDERS before the events of the original game, as well as introduces the horseman STRIFE.
