Darksiders arrives with the new year

Just days into 2010.

THQ aims to kickstart the new year by releasing Darksiders: Wrath of War on 8th January 2010.

Darksiders, a steroid-pumped interpretation of the Apocalypse, follows Horseman War as he romps around smacking the Christ out of everything.

Vigil Games is behind the wheel and, despite the obvious similarities to God of War, has dreamed up noteworthy features, including your horse Ruin, primarily. Ruin can be summoned and dismissed in an instant, making for some interesting set-pieces.

Find out much more about the actually very promising Darksiders in our detailed hands-on preview.

Darksiders: Wrath of War is in development for PS3 and Xbox 360.
