Darksiders – Strife, Fury and Death art revealed

Tuesday, 12th January 2010 13:22 GMT By Patrick Garratt


When Vigil boss Joe Madureira told us he’d designed all four of Darksiders’ Horsemen of the Apocalypse, he wasn’t lying. Hit the link to see Strife, Fury and Death revealed.

THQ just popped over the art, showing off War’s end of days buddies in all their glory. Lovely stuff.

All of this is exceedingly good news. Further work on the IP seems inevitable. Madureira has already told us that THQ’s exploring film and other cross-media opportunities, and the publisher’s been publicly upbeat about the game’s post-Christmas release.

Darksiders has had an excellent reception so far, taking MC averages of 85 for PS3 and 84 for 360.

    Although one of those quite clearly not a horseman. :-)

    maybe they will make a spin off ds/psp game using these characters

    iim quite surprised that they made a game about one of the four horseman and never featured any of the other three…maybe there is a grand plan

    they will probably make a graphic novel series

    I’m really surprised that noone ever made a 4 horseman game before this.

    I mean I never,ever thought of it. But it’s one of those ideas when you hear it, you know it would be perfect for a game premise.

    @9: It’s a kool genremix with simple gameplay and a nice story. It’s a bit overhyped I think, but still a good game :)

    I hope Vigil is going to make a Second Game with Coop (4 Horseman = 4 players) That would be great, but without tearing :D

    not sure why fury is female since it’s horseMEN, but that’s a hot post apocalyptic brute justice bitch.

    it should be a promising game…
    however…the four horsemen….are as they say horsemen…but i presume its ok to add a little flair to it…fine…but at least keep their names sheesh….
    War,Death,Famine,Pestilence….come on people…sheesh…
    if you start a game with truth let it continue some type of truth…
    first two characters right…good…now what…i cant wait to see…
