Become a Horseman of the Apocalypse at PAX


If you’ve ever dreamed of being one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, pack your bags for Seattle and this weekend’s Penny Arcade Expo!

THQ’s PS3 and Xbox 360 action/adventure game Darksiders will be taking center stage at the publisher’s PAX booth (#1042) this September 4-6. There, brave attendees will be able to mount a mechanical horse modeled after War’s equine companion, Ruin, and take part in a little Facebook photo op (your picture will be taken and posted to the Darksiders Facebook page). The Ruin mechanical horse, pictured above, was actually built by Evan Brainard, one of the mechanical designers and special effects masterminds behind the T-Rex from Jurassic Park and the Terminator from Terminator 2, so it’s Hollywood quality.

Do you have what it takes to tame this mighty steed?
