Darksiders Gets a Launch Date


After what seems like numerous delays, THQ and Vigil Games’ PS3 and Xbox 360 action-adventure title Darksiders, previously subtitled Wrath of War, has a new ship date. In North America, the game will launch on January 5, 2010, followed by launches of January 7th and January 8th across Europe and the Asia Pacific, respectively.

As you can see above, the game’s final box art has also gone through some changes… changes for the worse if you ask me. The actual imagery is similar, but for some reason THQ decided to remove the background scenery and suck away all the color in favor of a drab gray with gold highlights. I don’t know, it just looks really dull and ugly compared to what it used to be.
