Darksiders Unleashes Hellish Brutality On January 5

If the rumored North American release date for Bayonetta proves true, we could be looking at a definite action battle in the early part of January.

Why? Because THQ has just announced that their long-awaited and highly anticipated action/adventure title, Darksiders, is slated to arrive in the US for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on January 5. It'll be available in Europe a few days later. Developed by Vigil Games, this is a game that has been on our radar for quite some time and although it was expected to hit store shelves this fall, THQ clearly wanted to give the designers some extra time. It features the art style of revered comic book artist Joe Madureira, and you will step into the large boots of War, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. The setting is the earth - or a fantastical earth, rather - a century after the prophecies of the biblical tragedy come true. It'll be your job to restore balance between Heaven and Hell as demons and all sorts of nasties traverse the battle-torn earth, lost and intent on wreaking havoc. For more media and information, be sure to check out the official site, and we've also got a couple videos for you as well:

Brutal B-Roll Gameplay

It looks like a healthy dose of over-the-top brutality in all respects, and as we just said, if Bayonetta also launches on the 5th, action aficionados may have a tough decision to make. Would you rather control the sleek, sexy witch or the muscular, bad-ass dude that kinda reminds us of Gears of War? Well, it'll probably all come down to reviews, now won't it?

Well this is a good thing for us PS3 gamers, think about it, we better get ready for a lot more players on the PSN, were gonna see a lot more people switching to PS.

Passing on this game, waiting for bigger better ones. I'll be curious to see how many trades of this my store gets however. Feels like it's gonna be InFamous and Prototype all over again.

Hmm, good point. It could get lost in the shuffle of similar games.

I remember Joe Madureira when he was a high school intern working at Marvel during my time working for Bob Harras in the X-Men office. Even then, people were wowed with his art.

Ah, those were interesting times, I was there for the launch of McFarlane's Spider-Man 1, Lee's X-Men 1, and X-Force 1.

I was also there when Harras fired Claremont.
