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 finally available for digital preorder. The game should launch on February 13, 2020 and costs $35 at the moment. The price will probably jump back up to $40 after launch.
Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Darksiders Genesis is Xbox One X Enhanced. We're currently playing the game on Google Stadia and while it runs at 60 frames per second, the resolution appears to be 1080p. If it is 4K, then the presentation is quite blurry. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
Luckily, it's an amazing game so the hilarious voice acting and gameplay make up for it.
Just the game
Darksiders Genesis tells an original story and focuses on War and Strife as they uncover they unravel an ancient mystery.
Before the war

The Four Horsemen
Strife enters the battlefield
Darksiders Genesis: Nephilim Edition includes the regular collector's edition, as well as an expansive board game that should be a lot of fun at parties.
