Darksiders: The Forbidden Land is a co-op dungeon crawler board game for up to five players, and for the first time in a Darksiders game, all Four Horsemen will be playable at the same time.Revealed by THQ Nordic, the game features an entirely new story set in the Darksiders universe, and comes with 61 pre-painted minis, as well as customisable decks of cards for each rider. While four players will control one of the Four Horsemen, one player will assume the role of game master, allowing enemies to move more tactically. The game can be played without the game master however, by using standard game rules to control their movements.Read more

THQ Nordiq has unveiled the Darksiders Genesis Nephilim Edition, which packs in all sorts of collectibles that fans of the franchise will probably clamor for.
Darksiders Genesis' special editions come with a collection of special items, including an artbook, a soundtrack, and even a board game.
It's tempting to think of Darksiders: Genesis as Darksiders does Diablo but, while they may look very much alike at first glance, the comparison is actually some way wide of the mark. An isometric view is about as deep as the similarities go - the intention in developing Darksiders: Genesis, Airship Syndicate CEO Joe Madureira told me at E3, was to make a true Darksiders game despite the new camera angle.So while you might have been expecting sedate, meditative auto-attacks as per Blizzard's dungeon crawler, Genesis offers the exact same mix of hack-and-slash attacks and special abilities you'll remember from the core series; just, again, with a different camera angle. This was certainly born out in the combat but, more interestingly, in an ambitious platforming section that did some interesting things in terms of level traversal. There's always been more than a touch of The Legend of Zelda to Darksiders, in my opinion, and I'm pleased to say that same spark is very much a part of the experience here.Genesis offers both single-player and split-screen coop and so, as you might expect, comes packing two protagonists. War, franchise favourite, is joined by Strife, who makes his first appearance as a playable character in a Darksiders game. Packing his trademark twin revolvers and seven different types of ammunition, Strife is very much a ranged character, whereas War is every bit the melee focused brute you'll remember from the first Darksiders. In co-op, each player controls one horseman throughout, but in single-player you're free to swap between the two at will. Read more
