Darksiders is an action-adventure game which was developed by Vigil games and was published by THQ. The bases of the story are "The four horsemen of the apocalypse". The horseman that would turn out to be your character in the first darksiders game is War.
In this game you take control of your character in a third-person perspective. In the game War starts with the weapon Chaoseater but as you progress through the game you can access new weapons as well as another primary weapon which is the Schyte of 'Death'(War's Brother/A horseman of the apocalypse). Throughout the game War will also unlock many different attack combinations which will be very helpful if used when needed in the game.
There are also the options to dodge swiftly, block attacks and use various countermoves. War also has the ability to use wrath powers which can be offensive and defensive and he can also go into his chaos form which increases his damage tenfold as well as making him immortal for a range of time. Throughout the world, bombs also spawn as they are used to destroy various obstacles in the game in order to progress further.
At a later stage in the game,War gains the ability to summon a horse named Ruin which helps a lot with travelling throughout the map. He can also collect wrath cores and lifestone fragments which increase War's wrath and health.
From the beginning of time, heaven and hell had fought wars with each other with neither side being able to get the advantage over the other side. Because of this the Charred Council was founded in order to maintain order and balance, and they chose to create a brotherhood for this purpose, the four horsemen of the Apocalypse which consisted of War, Death, Strife and Fury. During these wars the race of humanity emerged.
When the game starts War arrives on earth where the war that ends everything began. The armies of heaven and hell could be seen fighting a war in the kingdom of man. War faced Abaddon which was the general of the army of heaven and while communicating with him War learn that the horsemen where not summoned and that the final seal was not broken. Because of him breaking the rules of the horsemen War was punished by having a watcher bound to him. This watcher has the ability to kill War if he strays from his mission.
After a century War returned to earth where all of humanity was obliterated by the armies of hell which were led by the Destroyer. On earth War accepts the help of Vulgrim the soul merchant which gave him the whereabouts of Samuel (A former lord of the demons) in order to find information on how to defeat the armies of hell and the Destroyer. Samuel speaks to War about the Chosen which are 4 demons which you must defeat in order to take their hearts and bring them back to Samuel.
After doing this Samuel will bring War to the tower where the Angel of death is found imprisoned. During the time in which War is trying to free Azrael he ends up confessing that he , Abaddon and Uriel were trying to bring the apocalypse faster.
But he states that this plan was ruined by the death of Abaddon. War then was told to find parts of the Armageddon blade
which was one of the only if not the only weapon which is able to kill the destroyer. He was told to give these parts to Ulthane Blackhammer which was one of the Makers in order to reforge the Armageddon blade.
After the blade is reforged, War goes to challenge the Destroyer, where he succeeds in defeating him and in retrieving the seventh seal. But as the final part of the story unfolds War is betrayed by the Watcher which says that The charred council is also betraying the horsemen.
