Darksiders Genesis Nephilim Edition Includes Full Board Game (VIDEO)

A prequel to the Darksiders series is on its way in Darksiders Genesis, offering a Diablo-like top-down spin on the traditional hack-and-slash gameplay featured in the franchise thus far. As this entry also introduces a new protagonist in Strife, the series’ fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse, fans are surely in for a unique experience when the latest from Airship Syndicate and THQ Nordic eventually sees release.

By the looks of the game’s upcoming premium Nephilim Edition, it appears Genesis won’t be the series’ only shake-ups featured at launch. Notably appearing in the aforementioned edition is a bevy of spiffy goodies, including an entire Darksiders-themed board game called Darksiders: The Forbidden Land. Little was officially detailed about this yet-unreleased tabletop experience, though we do get a peek at the full multi-hex-based setup in the trailer below, alongside an official product description from Amazon.

  • The Nephilim Edition contains all the loot from the Collector’s Edition as well as the Limited Edition Darksiders: the forbidden land board game!
  • Blast Angels and demons as the gunslinging Horseman Strife, playable for the first time
  • Swap between the powerful swordsman War and Strife instantly in frenetic, single-player gameplay
  • Explore the epic world of Darksiders and wreak havoc with a friend in two-player cooperative mode
  • Experience a brand new story campaign that takes place before the original Darksiders, exploring the origin of the Seven seals

Darksiders Genesis Nephilim Edition is currently available for pre-order on Amazon for the price of $379.99 USD. While fetching for an admittedly hefty sum, this particular collection does appear to be mostly for Darksiders devotees who also happen to be fans of premium board games. The Nephilim Edition is limited to 5,000 units worldwide, though, gamers without the need for Darksiders board game (or don’t have the loftiest of wallets) can spring for the special Collector’s Edition on Amazon for $119.99 USD. A trailer and description for this edition can be viewed below.

  • The Collector’s Edition includes Darksiders Genesis, collectible steelbook case, 9-inch strife Figurine, artbook, soundtrack and stickers
  • Blast Angels and demons as the gunslinging Horseman Strife, playable for the first time
  • Swap between the powerful swordsman War and Strife instantly in frenetic, single-player gameplay
  • Explore the epic world of Darksiders and wreak havoc with a friend in two-player cooperative mode
  • Experience a brand new story campaign that takes place before the original Darksiders, exploring the origin of the Seven seals

Darksiders Genesis is scheduled to release for Google Stadia, Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One sometime in 2019.
