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 for digital preorder. The game should launch on February 14 and costs $35 at the moment. The price will jump back up to $40 soon after launch.
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." It's unclear what the resolution is, but I would say it's either 4K or 1800p.
One downside is that it runs at 30 frames per second (FPS) on the console. There doesn't appear to be an option to turn the resolution down to 1080p and increase the frame rate to 60 FPS.
