Darksiders: Wrath of War is an action-adventure role-playing game. Vigil Games is the company developing the game and it will be published by one of the largest third party publishers THQ. The game is designed by Haydn Dalton and Joe Madureira. Developers are considering releasing Darksiders: Wrath of War for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It will be released in Q2 of 2009. Both single and multiplayer mode is included in the game. The game is believed to be inspired from Apocalypse and the battle of Armageddon as described in the book of Revelation. The player resumes the character of “War”, one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse.

Role given top the player is of “War”, he is one of the legendary and brave Horseman of Apocalypse. Apocalypse has just started prematurely, and the world is destroyed by some unknown force. War finds himself assigned to find who is responsible for this destruction and destroy whoever is behind it. Whilst he is caught in battle going on between angels and demons. He lost most of his power in the battle and now only way to find out who is behind all this destruction is to find other three Horsemen. Also he has to find out who misled them into the war. The apocalyptic settings of the game seem interesting. One more thing everybody is looking forward is that for the first time in a game you are given an opportunity to play from the side of Apocalypse.

Basically Darksiders is a combat action game, it will feature weapons like miniguns and swords. Throughout the game you will be given the feature of regaining power. War will ride his own ride a horse called Ruin. Both Horse and powers will play an important role in the game, reason is they will help him to access areas of the fantasy world which is otherwise closed because of the distance and other dark settings. Access to the power-up and special moves is gained when a Wrath meter is filled up. The Wrath meter used will be similar to the Wrath meter used in the musou game Dynasty Warriors. Battles are fought on both above ground and underground. Gameplay for both the world will differ as the one fought underground will focus on puzzles and the one fought on the land will focus more on roaming freely. Early screenshots are forcing game experts to compare the game to God of War and Devil May Cry, because of the strong combination of combo based sword combat and guns. Lead designer of the game Joe Madureira has linked the game to The Legend of Zelda series.
