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.
