Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of mankind, WAR - the first Horseman of the Apocalypse - must return to Earth to search for the truth and punish those responsible. War must take on the forces of Heaven and Hell, forge uneasy alliances with the very demons he hunts, and journey across the ravaged remains of the Earth on his quest for vengeance. Players harness the apocalyptic power of War, combining brutal attacks and supernatural abilities to decimate enemies who stand in his way. With an extreme arsenal of weapons, War blazes a trail of destruction, and emerges even more deadly atop Ruin, War’s fiery phantom steed. Darksiders is now available for Xbox 360(R), PlayStation(R) 3 and Windows PC. For more information, please visit www.darksiders.com.
