We hope the PC audience enjoys battling the forces of heaven and hell in this great game.”

Darksiders is an action adventure game, with RPG elements, that was released at the beginning of the year for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms.
The game placed players in control of War, one of the three horsemen of the Apocalypse, who needs to travel through intricate levels, battle enemies and restore balance to the world.
For the PC version, Darksiders developer Vigil Games has completely reworked the control scheme to facilitate the mouse and keyboard layout, and has also polished up the visuals for computers with a better configuration.
