Relive the prehistory of Darksiders and the origin of the Seven Seals. The two apocalyptic riders War and Strife compete against Lucifer, the deceptive demon king planning to upset the balance between heaven and hell. It is up to the two riders to hunt down the demons, as Strife also starts to questions the Council's motives. War is already known as the main character from Darksiders. He is a melee fighter who is at home using powerful swinging attacks and flames in the midst of battle. Strife, in contrast, celebrates his serial debut in this game. He is quite the opposite to War, since he is a pistol-wielding long-distance fighter. He can shoot with two single rifles or assemble and fire both weapons for a more powerful shot. Like War, he can quickly dodge enemies to get out of their way. Intermediate sequences are realised by drawn character portraits in the style of Battle Chasers: Nightwar.
