This Darksiders 2 preview gives a quick look at what can be expected from Vigil Games’ upcoming hack ‘n’ slash, action-adventure video game.

After War is convicted and sent back to Earth by the Charred Council, they inform the other three Horsemen of his fate. Death, knowing that his brother War is the most honorable and incorruptible of the four, and would never have started the Apocalypse early, flies into a rage. Believing his brother is victim of a conspiracy, Death defies the Council’s orders and sets out on a personal mission to find proof of his brother’s innocence. Death travels to the Nether Realms, a place between Heaven and Hell, to call in favors from powerful beings that rule the realm.

  • Darksiders II is an upcoming hack and slash, action adventure video game developed by Vigil Games and published by THQ. It is the sequel to Darksiders and is expected to be released sometime in June 2012 on the PC, Playstation 3, Wii U, and Xbox 360 platforms.

    Game director Marvin Donald talks about the role of Death, the creative process of the original Darksiders, and talks about the new world of Darksiders 2 in this interview!

    And take a look at the official Death gameplay in this trailer.

    Key Features of Darksiders 2

    Here is a list of key elements that will be available in Vigil Games’ Darksiders 2 based on news and announcements made so far.

    City Hubs & NPC’s
    The game will take Death across multiple dungeons and city hubs. City hubs feature NPCs who can give out side quests etc. In the July 2011 issue of Game Informer, the cover feature details that one city hub will connect to a number of dungeons and that one city area will feature more dungeons than the whole of Darksiders I.

    Loot will also be included, dropping from encounters as rewards ranging from 12 different armor piece categories, which can have different enchantments and may power up Death’s Wrath Powers.

    The game will reportedly take place across an entirely new ensemble of maps, confirmed to be double in cumulative size to that of its predecessor.

    Check out the announcement trailer!
