THQ announced that an original novel, set in the Darksider’s universe will be published by Random House’s Del Rey imprint in May 2012.
The title known as “Darksiders: The Abomination Vault” written by Ari Marmell, will take 1000 years before the first game in the series. The Horsemen of the Apocalypse are tasked with maintaining the balance between Heaven and Hell’s forces, uncovering a plot to resurrect ancient weapons of intense power.
Death will be tracking down and neutralizing the individuals behind the scheme with the help of War, before the universe is plunged into conflict.
For those looking for some game news, the book launches in the same month as the game.
