Darksiders Genesis

  • A recent report by Escapist Magazine divulges that Darksiders Genesis, an isometric action title by Airship Syndicate, will take players around 15 hours to complete. But the title will “reward exploration” says director Steve Madureira.
  • The hack-and-slash title sets to have 11 levels total and five boss fights to master. Each of them can be replayed, you can go back to gain resources you may have missed at the time. Players will need to gain Creature Cores dropped by enemies to level up abilities.
  • Originally Airship set out to create a 10 hour main playthrough but with time the game grew to 15 hours of content. Of course this will depend on the level of detail players will spend with each level, through exploration and whether they choose to race through on horseback or walk to discover. There are also three difficulty levels, casual, normal and hard mode. But you can also unlock Apocalyptic difficulty upon completing a successful run through.
  • Darksiders Genesis will release on PC on December 5th and Google Stadia. Console versions will arrive on February 14th 2020.
