THQ announced Darksiders: Wrath of War at this year's E3, and the post-disaster title has a a lot of potential.
First off, it's not a sequel or a movie tie-in. Secondly, THQ's internal development studio Vigil Games, includes legendary comic book artist Joe Madureira.
"Our internal studio Vigil Games is combining proprietary next-gen gaming technology and a graphic novel visual style to bring open-world gaming to the action-adventure genre like never before," said Kelly Flock, executive vice president of worldwide publishing, THQ. "We believe the game's combination of a deep yet easy to control combat system, seamless open-world exploration and the artistic vision of legendary artist Joe Madureira will make Darksiders: Wrath of War a must have game in 2008."
The game comes out on the PS3 and the 360 in 2008.
