Darksiders is a single-player action adventure in which the player takes control of the protagonist, War. In third-person perspective, the player engages in combat, puzzles and exploration. The world is divided into separate locations with many areas at first initially inaccessible until War regains many of his lost weapons and abilities. The center of the world, The Scalding Gallow, acts as a hub where War is given new objectives and paths to further unlock new areas. Each contains a series of linear and non-linear paths, many of which require large sections of platforming, climbing and swimming along environment-based puzzles that impair progress that require the use of newly-gained abilities. He fights mainly against Angels and demons, and has a unique way to kill each particular type of enemy, usually tearing them apart painfully.
Darksiders requires a Radeon HD 3870 graphics card with a Core 2 Duo E6420 2.13GHz or Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5200+ processor to reach the recommended specs, achieving high graphics setting on 1080p. 3 GB will also be needed to achieve the Darksiders rec specs and get 60FPS. Minimum RAM requirements are 1 GB system memory. We suggest a 12 year old PC to play smoothly.
