Darksiders is now available at retail stores across South Africa for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
This action-adventure game sees you taking control of War, one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse. He's a bit miffed after being misled into bringing a premature end to the world and has consequently decided to go back to Earth on a quest to regain his honour and duly punish those responsible.
“Darksiders offers tons of action, huge environments to explore and an epic storyline that literally determines the fate of heaven and hell,” said David Adams, general manager of developer, Vigil Games.  “We seamlessly combined gameplay elements from multiple genres to create a cohesive, unique and compelling gameplay experience.”
The game isn't just about superb graphics and great gameplay either; Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker in Star Wars Episodes IV, V & VI) was responsible for the voice acting for War's Jailer on Earth, known as the Watcher, so we should be in for a really treat on all fronts.
The recommended retail price for the game is R699 on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms.
