Darksiders Genesis ‘Introducing Strife’ trailer

The Rider of the White Horse.

Darksiders Genesis

Publisher THQ Nordic and developer Airship Syndicate have released a new trailer for Darksiders Genesis introducing Strife, the Rider of the White Horse.

Here is an overview of Strife, via THQ Nordic:

One… two, three.

Strife, the Rider of the White Horse, 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 is due out for PC and Stadia on December 5, and for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch on February 14, 2020.
