Darksiders is an action-adventure game developed by Vigil Games and published by THQ. The game takes its inspiration from the apocalypse, with the player taking the role of War. The game was released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on January 5, 2010 in North America and January 8 in Europe. A Windows version was released in June 2010. An enhanced remake titled Darksiders: Warmastered Edition was released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U.

To preserve the balance between Heaven and Hell, a mediator group, The Charred Council, sends the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, to intervene and force a truce between the two kingdoms after countless centuries of war. Eons after the truce, The Council foresees that Man will be a major factor in the battle. As such, a final battle would take place when the Seventh Seal was broken.

In the present day, armies of demons and angels fall to earth, destroying everything in their wake. In the midst of the chaos, War is summoned to Earth to bring order.
