What you need to know

Darksiders Genesis is a Diablo-like game from publisher THQ Nordic. Instead of featuring Darksiders III's punishing combat system, you're tasked with killing as many enemies as possible from the isometric perspective.

If you're interested in the game on Xbox One, you'll be happy to know that it's available right now. Those who preordered got 24-hour early access. The preorder cost $35, but now it's $40.

Darksiders Genesis is an action-adventure game that tears its way through Hell and back with guns blazing and swords swinging. Genesis gives players their first look at the world of Darksiders before the events of the original game. Furthermore, it introduces the fourth and last horseman Strife, as well as co-op gameplay for the first time in the history of the franchise.

We reached out to THQ Nordic to see if the game was Xbox One X Enhanced since it looked much sharper than the Google Stadia version we tested many months ago. The Microsoft Store doesn't mention that it's Xbox One X Enhanced. A spokesperson for the team simply responded, "Yes it is, but it might downscale in certain situations."

Darksiders Genesis takes the world of Darksiders and transitions it to a top-down presentation style, with a new story set before the events of the original game. Play as War and Strife in single-player or co-op.
