Darksiders Becoming More Than Just a Game?Goon
Darksiders is one of the video games we have been following rather closely here and today some exciting news has come down. The look of the game came from the artwork of Joe Madureira who is a very popular comic book artist. Well today he told VG247 that "cross media opportunities" are presenting themselves.
“We've gotten some interest from Hollywood, we've talked about doing a comic series,” said the exec. “At least a couple of those things have to happen, I’m sure.”
Darksiders is in stores now. Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of the world, War - the first Horseman of the Apocalypse - stands accused of breaking the sacred law by inciting a war between heaven and hell. Dishonored and stripped of his powers, War must return to Earth to search for the truth and punish those responsible. But there is no clear definition of good and evil in this tale. Hunted by a vengeful group of angels, War must take on the forces of Hell, forge uneasy alliances with the very demons he hunts, and journey across the ravaged remains of the Earth on his quest for vindication. But the answers he seeks will reveal a deep conspiracy in which War will find, and have to resign himself to the reality that although once the hand of God, he is just a pawn in the eternal battle between heaven and hell.
