And we're getting the vibe that moving forward, the Darksiders series, which has enjoyed(?) a tumultuous past, is going to expand on this open-world/dungeon-crawling new focus we're seeing with Darksiders Genesis, because it's already looking like an absolute winner. And recently, THQ Nordic and developer Airship Syndicate dropped an all-new gameplay trailer.
Here's the official line on the game:
In a new gameplay trailer, developer Airship Syndicate and THQ Nordic present the so-called "Creature Core"-system which allows players to upgrade and customize their horseman's battle skills. Both fighters begin with a variety of different attacks but will gain access to more devastating and fascinating ways to smash demons on their journey through hell. "Creature Cores" can be picked up afters slaying enemies and bosses and are also available for purchase at Vulgrim's store in exchange for souls.The game is out on PC and Stadia this December 5, and will hit all consoles in February next year. But enough talk, check out the tantalising gameplay trailer embedded below.
