Airship Syndicate’s top-down, co-op spin on the Darksiders series, in the form of Darksiders Genesis, will be one of the games to close out 2019 it seems. At least, on certain platforms. Publisher THQ Nordic have confirmed that the game — set before the events of the first game, and introduces the fourth-and-final horsemen Strife, alongside his brother War — will set its sights on both PC and Google’s Stadia platform, on December 5. A console release across PS4, Xbox One & Switch will follow a couple months later into 2020, on February 14.
Darksiders Genesis supports both local and online co-op and is the first entry in the series to feature this style of play. The game will naturally have its own solo mode too with players swapping out control between War and Strife as they journey through a myriad of top-down dungeons. This latest instalment comes just a little over a year since the series’ third mainline entry, Darksiders III, was released for PS4, Xbox One & PC.
