Darksiders prequel novel announced

The Abomination Vault paves the way for Darksiders 2.

The Darksiders series is to get a scene-setting novel tie-in, THQ has announced.

Written by fantasy veteran Ari Marmell and published by Random House's Del Rey imprint, Darksiders: The Abomination Vault is set thousands of years before the events of the first game in the franchise.

The book follows twin Horsemen Death and War as they attempt to scupper a mysterious plot to resurrect powerful ancient weapons and trigger a devastating conflict.

It's due on shelves in May this year, a month before Darksiders 2 is expected to launch.

For a closer look at the Vigil Games-developed sequel to the well-received 2010 Zelda riff, head on over to Eurogamer's Darksiders 2 preview.
