Continuing our video collection feature known as the Video Blitz, we bring you today all of the necessary official media to paint your final picture of THQ and Vigil Games’ Darksiders!
Like many games before it, Darksiders plays out in an unintentionally post-apocalyptic Earth. Unlike most games before it, you get to play as War, the Horsemen of lore that has been blamed for the pre-mature rapture. Combining gameplay elements from The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and God of War, you’ll hack and slash your way to progressively more badass weaponry and magic attacks as you cut a path through the massive demonic army that lies between you and your answers. Equipped with several traverse-gadgets, War will be able to enter into several multi-level dungeons and spelunk about for hidden treasures and secret areas. Joining War on his journey is his summon-able epic steed Ruin and an ethereal watcher, known creatively as The Watcher, who has been sent to guide War’s hand and keep him in check (and with Mark Hamil’s pipes, you know demented humor isn’t hard up to follow.) Sporting epic boss battles, scenic charred vistas, and a creative design influenced by famed comic-book artist Joe Madureira (Uncanny X-Men,) there is little keeping any adrenaline-junkie or biblical Laurette from welcoming this End of the World.
