Darksiders Genesis announced - spin-off brings significant series shake-up

THQ Nordic has announced Darksiders Genesis, a top-down action adventure coming later this year to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and PC.

Developed by Airship Syndicate, Darksiders Genesis has been announced just half a year after the release of Darksiders 3, and is definitely a spin-off, not a full-blown sequel.

"In Darksiders Genesis, the fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse STRIFE is called upon to save humankind from certain destruction at the hands of Lucifer. True to its roots, Darksiders Genesis will feature intense combat, exploration, puzzle-solving, epic boss battles and serpent holes from heaven to hell. The game marks the first, full-scale Darksiders adventure played from the top-down perspective".

The announcement follows yesterday's reveal of SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated, a remake of the 2003 cult classic. THQ Nordic will be completing a trinity of E3 2019 reveals tomorrow, so check back here for that.

E3 2019 has kicked off with a tonne of announcements, if you want to keep up to date with it all, check out our E3 2019 Hub. Also, we've written up our expectations for this year's E3, so be sure to check that out too.

One thing we weren't expecting was the announcement of Baldur's Gate 3, crazy right?
