Update: It's true, the new Darksiders game, Darksiders Genesis, appears to be a top-down action RPG. Here's the teaser trailer to prove it:
Original story: The development of a new Darksiders game was outed last week when the project popped up on an E3 streaming schedule. The title would apparently be taking the series in a "different direction". At the time, that could have meant anything, but now we may have a much better idea of what's in store.
Always good for a pre-E3 leak, an Amazon listing has all but confirmed that the game will be called Darksiders Genesis, but here's the juicy part: it's being developed by Airship Syndicate. Not exactly a household name, but the studio was behind 2017's Battle Chasers: Nightwar, which was a fantastic turn based role-playing title. Could Darksiders Genesis end up being something similar? At this point, we don't know why you'd hire the developer otherwise.
Anyway, here's the Amazon page description:
"War and Strife have been given a new assignment. Lucifer has been plotting to grant power to master demons throughout Hell. War and Strife must hunt down these masters. Fight your way through a tangled, demonic conspiracy that threatens to forever upset the Balance and unravel all of creation."
Based on some leaked screenshots, the game looks like some sort of top-down action RPG, but we'll obviously need to see it for ourselves before jumping to any firm conclusions.
Interested? Let us know if you're up for a different kind of Darksiders in the comments section below.
The airship syndicate was set up by former members of Vigil games after the collapse of THQ. Many of their staff worked on the original two Darksiders games.
OK that's interesting, i always thought the Darksideres series had potential even if it never really lived up to it but i still enjoyed them
Never played one of these, but I like the ARPG/Diablo/Ys thing this entry has going on.
Updated the article!
@redd214 Just updated, but thanks for the link anyway, always appreciated.
@ShogunRok you're welcome, appreciate all you guys do, seems like it's going to be a busy day for you all!!
Am I only one who thinks strife looks out of place with the other horsemen? I mean his name was already out of place but his face looks like it belongs in Destiny
@redd214 E3 hasn't even started yet!
Meh, top-down, turn-based RPGs are too old school. If it was a proper 3rd person action RPG, absolutely!
That guy looks like an exo from destiny universe. That said, I'm always up for something that fills my Diablo needs.
battle chasers was a great game.so this looks interesting.word up son
This looks awesome. I'll probably be dead by the time Diablo 4 comes out so I'm totally down for this.
This looks very interesting, like combining puzzle solving elements such as, new gear to pass certain areas and/or weapons, and being set in a diablo like universe is very intriguing to me.
darksiders sega genesis n.i.c.e😁.word up son
I'm glad you mentioned Battle chasers nightwar. I completely missed that game somehow. After reading that review I'll have to pick it up. As far as Darksiders Diablo style, I'm hopeful optimistic.
Very D3 - and that is a very good thing!
Perhaps Chaosbane will not get my coin!
So is Joe Madureira doing the character designs for this one?
I'm all in on this. Darksiders + Diablo = Happy Happy
Welcome news! The previous game copied a series I don’t like (Dark Souls) and I really hated it. Now this one will copy a series I love (Diablo) so I’m all in!
If it's a darksiders game it is a must buy. Totally love the series.
