Coming to the PC

Apocalyptic adventure title
optimized for a summer release on PC

THQ Inc. today announced that its
critically acclaimed action-adventure title Darksiders will be coming to the PC
in June.

Released earlier this year for Xbox
360 and Playstation 3, Darksiders will be available for PC gamers to enjoy in
all of its apocalyptic glory this summer. Developed by THQ’s in-house studio
Vigil Games, this version of the game is being meticulously crafted to deliver
the same great art style and dynamic game play to a whole new audience.

Travis Plane, Vice President of
Global Brand Management commented, “We are delighted to be able to bring
Darksiders to the PC. THQ is focused on bringing great product to the PC gaming
audience so it was vital that we allowed Vigil the time to optimize the title
for the PC platform. We hope PC gamers experience the same thrill and get the
same level of satisfaction assuming the mantle of WAR as the console audience

David Adams, General Manager of
Vigil Games commented, “We are really excited to have the opportunity to bring
Darksiders to the global PC audience. We feel that the growth of digital
distribution and PC online communities creates a great environment for our game.
We are working really hard to make sure that key features such as user-defined
resolutions, interface and both keyboard and game pad control sets are all up to
the standards for today’s discerning PC consumer.”

About Darksiders

Deceived by the forces of evil into
prematurely bringing about the end of mankind, WAR – the first Horseman of the
Apocalypse – must return to Earth to search for the truth and punish those
responsible. War must take on the forces of Heaven and Hell, forge uneasy
alliances with the very demons he hunts, and journey across the ravaged remains
of the Earth on his quest for vengeance. Players harness the apocalyptic power
of War, combining brutal attacks and supernatural abilities to decimate enemies
who stand in his way. With an extreme arsenal of weapons, War blazes a trail of
destruction, and emerges even more deadly atop Ruin, War’s fiery phantom steed.
Darksiders is now available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. For more
