Darksiders Genesis is an upcoming 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.

From the dawn of creation, "The Council" has maintained balance across existence. Lucifer, the enigmatic and deceptive demon king, has been plotting to upset the balance by granting power to master demons throughout Hell. The Horsemen War and Strife must hunt down these masters, gather information, and ultimately fight their way through a tangled, demonic conspiracy that threatens to unravel all of creation.

Darksiders Genesis: Collector's Edition

If you love the franchise, you'll be excited to know that Darksiders Genesis is getting an amazing collector's edition. The package costs $120 and includes a gorgeous statue. However, there's another version for the ultimate fan.

Before the war

Darksiders Genesis: Collector's Edition

War enters the battlefield

Darksiders Genesis: Collector's Edition includes an amazing statue of Strife, one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Darksiders Genesis: Nephilim Edition

The Darksiders Genesis: Nephilim Edition includes the statue, but also comes with a board game. Darksiders: The Forbidden Land is just as challenging as the video games and is a lot of fun with friends. This package costs $380, so it seems like the board game is quite expensive.
