    Darksiders ist ein Action-Adventure, das dich mitten in die Apokalypse versetzt. Die Menschheit ist dabei einer furchtbaren Verschwörung zum Opfer zu fallen: Dunkle Mächte haben bewusst das Ende der Zeit zu früh eingeläutet und Dämonen ausgesandt, um die gesamte Welt zu verwüsten. Du übernimmst im Spiel die Rolle eines Reiters der Apokalypse! Urspünglich sollten die Reiter den Untergang der Welt überwachen. Doch der Verrat ihres Meisters bringt sie dazu, dass sie ihre Phantomrösser gegen die Truppen ins Feld führen, die hinter der Verschwörung stecken! Darksiders basiert auf einer Geschichte, die von Comic-Buch-Künstler Joe Madureira (u.a. X-Men, Battle Chasers, und The Ultimates) verfasst wurde. Er lässt dich im Spiel an den gewaltigen Schlachten der Apokalypse teilnehmen, in denen du das Schicksal der Welt mit modernen und mythologischen Waffen rächen kannst!

    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. Brought before the sacred Charred Council, War is indicted for his crimes and stripped of his powers. Dishonored and facing his own death, War is given the opportunity to return to Earth to search for the truth and punish those responsible in Darksiders.

    Now, hunted by a vengeful group of Angels, War must take on the forces of Hell, forge uneasy alliances with the very demons he hunts, and journey across the ravaged remains of the Earth on his quest for vengeance and vindication.
