Darksiders is a hack and slash action-adventure video game developed by Vigil Games and published by THQ. The game takes its inspiration from the apocalypse and battle of armageddon described in the Bible’s Book of Revelation, with the player taking the role of “War”, one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Darksiders was released on January 5, 2010 in North America and most other countries. On January 7, Darksiders was released in Australia and New Zealand. On January 8, Darksiders was released in the UK and continental Europe.
In 2016, a remastered version called Darksiders Warmastered ion was released.
“ Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of the world, War – the first Horseman of the Apocalypse – stands accused of breaking the sacred law by inciting a war between Heaven and Hell. In the slaughter that ensued, the demonic forces defeated the heavenly hosts and laid claim to the Earth.
— Description ”
The player takes on the role of War, one of the four legendary Horsemen of the apocalypse. With the apocalypse just taken place prematurely, and the Earth destroyed, War has been found guilty by the Charred Council for the cause of the premature Apocalypse. War, sentenced to be destroyed, makes a deal to be placed back on Earth to find out who was behind the catastrophe – albeit chained to The Watcher. Caught in a never-ending war between angels and demons, 100 years have passed, and Earth bares little resemblance to the world we know. War has lost much of his power, including his horse Ruin and must find out where the other horsemen are, and who misled them into starting the final battle.

A wrath meter fills up as War fights and gives access to powered-up and special moves. Action takes place both underground where puzzles play a large role, and above ground in which free roaming is allowed.
Although early impressions have led journalists to compare the game to God of War and Devil May Cry due to its strong combination of combo based sword combat, designer Joe Madureira has likened it to The Legend of Zelda due to the game’s open-world hub-and-dungeon structure and puzzle solving (including minor platforming) elements. Many journalists have noted that Darksiders has borrowed elements from games such as Panzer Dragoon, World of Warcraft, God of War and Portal.
Darksiders generally received very favourable reviews, with reviewers praising the game’s pacing, fun gameplay, variety of weapons items and content, large world to explore, art style and vibrant use of colour despite the post-apocalyptic setting. Some reviews lamented that Darksiders was too easy, while a smaller amount complained that i
