Darksiders is a long running series that follows the Horseman of the Apocalypse and their journey after the initial ride. Each game focuses on a different member of this family as you go out into a destroyed Earth in order to seek answers and complete missions on behalf of the special council. They all discover something new and provide a different sort of way to play.
They're all an expansion on the previous games and continue to push the franchise forward. War, Strife, Fury, and Death are the center focus within this hack n' slash melee title. The first release follows War as he heads back to Earth a great many years after the epic battles took place. The second entry follows Death as he attempts to clear his brother's name. The third release follows Fury as she aims to battle the Seven Deadly Sins with no care, but for her mission.
