Publisher THQ has announced that Darksiders, its apocalyptic platformer, will be available for the PC this summer. In Darksiders, the player controls War, the Horseman who has been tricked into starting the Apocalypse early and needs to set things right. The game is set up similarly to games in the Legend of Zelda series, with dungeons that provide weapons and tools which are used to solve puzzles and defeat enemies.
Vigil Games, THQ's in-house development studio that created the game, has stated that it is paying particular attention to the PC port. General Manager David Adams states, "We are really excited to have the opportunity to bring Darksiders to the global PC audience. We feel that the growth of digital distribution and PC online communities creates a great environment for our game. We are working really hard to make sure that key features such as user-defined resolutions, interface and both keyboard and game pad control sets are all up to the standards for today’s discerning PC consumer."
