THQ Nordic and Airship Syndicate today revealed Strife, the Rider of the White Horse in Darksiders Genesis. Strife is both impulsive and witty, true to the motto “Shoot first, ask questions later” or “Two Guns, one Horseman.”
He is the one with blood on his boots and a punchline on his lips. He fought countless enemies with his two best friends (read: pistols), Mercy and Redemption, as well as the protection of his impenetrable armor. Always by his side is Mayhem, Strife’s phantom steed.
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 (couch co-op trash talk, but also online). 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.
Darksiders Genesis will release on PC and Google Stadia on December 5, 2019, and PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch will follow on February 14, 2020 (pre-order here).
Darksiders Genesis is an action/adventure 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.
