Publisher THQ have released a short, but brutal trailer of the upcoming game Darksiders: Wrath of War, a third person action-adventure in development by Vigil games. The game is set in a frictional universe where the players take the role of War, one of the four legendary Horsemen of the apocalypse. The story revolves around the battle between the angels and the demons, while War gets caught in the middle.
Darksiders is primarily a combat action game, with weapons such as giant swords and miniguns available. War also regains his powers throughout the game, and has his own mount, a horse called Ruin. The powers and horse which War must regain play an important role in the game as they enable him to access areas of the world which would otherwise be closed to him. A wrath meter similar to the musou gauge in the Dynasty Warriors series fills up as War fights and gives access to powered-up and special moves.
