News | Use the Creature Core system in Darksiders Genesis

THQ Nordic has released a new trailer for Darksiders Genesis which focuses on combat.

In addition, images of the Creature Core system are shown, with which players can upgrade their character and adjust it to their own taste.

Darksiders Genesis is a spin-off in the Darksiders series and can be compared to Diablo, which plays from a top down perspective. According to the publisher, the game includes “intense combat, exploration, puzzles, epic boss fights and serpent holes from heaven to earth. In Genesis they play as Strife, a new Horseman of the Apocalypse. This character must save humanity from the “inevitable destruction” by saving Lucifer.

Darksiders Genesis will be released on December 5 for PC and Google Stages, and on February 14, 2020 for consoles.
