THQ’s Darksiders Plunges Into A Virtual
Post-Apocalyptic World

Developed by THQ’s internal development studio Vigil Games,
legendary comic book artist Joe Madureira ushers in a completely new style of
video game

Darksiders is an original action-adventure game that gives
players the opportunity to play as War, one of the four horsemen of the
Apocalypse. After humanity is wiped out on earth, a conspiracy between heaven
and hell frames War, who is falsely imprisoned for 100 years. War is given the
chance to come back to prove his innocence, and punish the one’s responsible in
an epic battle between the forces of good and evil.

As War explores a demon ravaged world – he uses a vast array
of modern and mythical weaponry that ranges from his iconic Chaos Eater Sword,
to angelic and demonic weapons that are acquired throughout the game. A deep and
diverse gaming experience, Darksiders merges gameplay elements from a variety of
genres, including the cinematic action of combat games, and the exploration and
puzzle solving of adventure games.

Darksiders will be available January 5, 2010 on the Xbox 360
and PLAYSTATION 3. For more information about Darksiders, please visit
