Darksiders Finally Brings Armageddon to the PC
Darksiders, the freshman release from Vigil Games is finally seeing the light of day on the PC. Almost a year after its console release, the tale of War – apocalyptic horseman and the battle between heaven and hell that prematurely ended the world is now available in all it’s glory for PC gamers.
Darksiders is a fun action title but it’s hard to discuss without noting the Zelda-like gameplay. Players take the role of War, as in the Horseman of the Apocalypse, who is fooled by evil into initiating the end times. The war between the two celestial realms leaves hell in control of Earth and War is punished for his transgressions. The game involves unravelling the dark plot that led to War’s censure and eventual redemption. Of course the story doesn’t quite wrap up here, so a sequel is planned with a 2012 release.
Those interested can find the game at retail or on Steam for around $40. The PC version is completely retooled from its console partner to use mouse/keyboard controls.
