THQ Nordic released a new trailer for the upcoming Darksiders Genesis which introduces one of the game’s protagonist: War.
As the youngest of the Four Horseman, War and his steed, Ruin, have survived countless battles thanks to his weapon Chaoseater and the protection of his impervious armor. War was wrongly framed by Abaddon for starting the Apocalypse too soon and was imprisoned for over one hundred years by The Charred Council.
Darksiders Genesis will let players choose to play as either War or his brother Strife. Also as a first for the series, the game wil also feature 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.
Darksiders Genesis will release later this year for Xbox One.
