Darksiders Genesis - PC & Stadia Launch Trailer.
Played from a top-down perspective, the game allows players to switch between Strife and War at any time. Strife uses his pistols while War uses his sword, Chaos Eater. Alternatively, two players can play the game in a co-op mode with each player taking the role of one of the characters. Once the player has killed enough enemies, they are allowed to use burst abilities which allow them to take down enemies quicker. The game currency is souls which can be earned by killing enemies that will spawn before the player. Platforming elements similar to previous games make a return and certain gameplay mechanics such as bombs are present too.
The game starts after the four horsemen attacked and decimated the Nephilim in the Eden. The Charred council suspects that the demon king Lucifer is planning something with Samael to upset the balance and orders War and Strife to investigate. After invading Samael's keep, they find it under attack from another master of hell, albeit a lesser one, Moloch. Samael informs them that he is not in league with Lucifer and the current attack on him is the result of that. Before he can say anything else, Moloch attacks and Samael teleports the horsemen to the void to find and talk to his associate. The horsemen track through the void and finds Vulgrim to be the associate Samael spoke of. Vulgrim informs them he can help track down Lucifer but he needs several artifacts. After collecting those required artifacts Vulgrim informs them that Lucifer has paid a visit to Mammon, a hell's master. Samael comes to void and suggests that the horsemen find Mammon and make him talk about Lucifer. They find Mammon with several relics and weapons from Eden. After killing him, the horsemen come back to Vulgrim and Samael where they learn that Lucifer has opened a path to Eden and bringing the sacred water and turning it to poison. The demon Belial is in charge of this operation. After stopping the operation, they confront Belial but spares him. But after the horsemen leave, Lucifer comes and kills him. The horsemen learn that Dagon, the drowned king is also being helped by Lucifer to cleanse Eden as Lucifer has offered him Eden. Meanwhile, they meat Abaddon, the guardian angel of Eden. He informs them that Lucifer is spreading corruption and asks them to help him cleanse the corruption from Eden. Afterwards the horsemen track down and kills Dagon. They return to the void and Lucifer advises them to destroy the source of Moloch's power before they attack him. They do so and together with Samael, they attack and kill Moloch. However, before his death, Moloch tells them that Lucifer's plan is complete and Samael knows about it. After returning to the void, Samael tells the horsemen that the Lucifer asked for the souls of the masters of hell after their death in exchange for their services. Samael also tells them that Lilith is also plotting with Lucifer and together they have made an artifact called the "Animus" which is fueled by the souls of the masters of the hell. This artifact is used on earth to corrupt the mankind. The horsemen go to earth to find the mankind living in sin and realize that they have helped Lucifer achieve his goal. Lucifer talks to them through a human child and tells the horsemen that corruption of the humankind is spreading and it will continue. After they come back to the Charred council as the council declares that humankind needs to be watched as a third kingdom. They then forge the seven seals as a treaty to uphold the balance between heaven and hell. Three of them comes from the demons and three comes from the angels and one is from the council. They declare whoever breaks the treaty shall suffer the wrath of The Horsemen, setting the stage for the future games.
