Darksiders Genesis - 'Introducing War' Trailer

THQ Nordic has posted a new trailer for Darksiders Genesis introducing War, one of the two playable characters in this Diablo-like prequel.

Check out the trailer below, alongside a description and set of screenshots from THQ Nordic.

Darksiders Genesis is set to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Google Stadia in 2019. In case you missed it, you can check out the announcement information or our Hands-on Impressions and chat with Joe Madureira from E3 2019.

War, the Rider of the Red Horse, is both honorable and savage. The youngest of the Four Horseman, but his age is no indication of his experience on the battleground. He has battled countless enemies with his furious weapon Chaoseater and the protection of his impervious armor. Always by his side is Ruin, War's phantom steed. Ruin is both mighty and graceful with its blackened coat and fiery hooves and mane. War was wrongly framed by Abaddon for starting the Apocalypse too soon and was imprisoned for over one hundred years by The Charred Council. Well, at least he has beautiful long and white hair. Without split ends.

In Darksiders Genesis you can choose to play either War or his brother Strife, and head into combat side by side in two player cooperative mode. The story takes place before the events of the original game when Lucifer, the enigmatic and deceptive demon king, plots to upset the Balance by granting power to master demons throughout Hell. If you are a melee type of gamer, War is your (gauntlet) left-hand.
