Darksiders is a hack and slash action-adventure video game franchise created by Vigil Games, now developed by Gunfire Games, which consists of some of the original members of Vigil.
This is the Destroyer’s kingdom. The demons howl his name as they sharpen their knives. The angels scream it as their flesh is shorn away. The mangled corpses of man rise to serve him, his will coursing through their veins. Hell’s victory in the Final War has carried the Destroyer to triumphal heights. Those who stood against him were slain or shackled... forgotten. Now his Black Throne dominates the horizon, crackling with its unholy aura. Nothing stands between the Destroyer and an eternity of ruin.
The Abyssal Riders are Hell’s cavalry, armed to eliminate any who oppose the Destroyer. Beneath their armour, the Riders are cracked and pale, their flesh barely able to contain the hellfire that roils within. They can release this energy in sorcerous attacks, or channel it into their shrieking phantom steeds. From across the Destroyer’s bleak kingdom they can be heard, the pounding hooves rolling over the dunes, like the distant beat of Death’s Drum
