Darksiders was a hit when it was released at the start of 2010 so it is not a surprise to hear that the sequel is in development and we will be able to get our hands on it in 2012.
If you remember, in Darksiders you played as War, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse and the game style was similar to Zelda. Well, this time the horseman in the spotlight is Death and let’s face it we can probably expect the other two horsemen to appear in later years as the third and fourth titles in the series. Here is what we know so far as well as the announcement trailer.
Darksiders® II follows the exploits of DEATH, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in a weaving tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game. This epic journey propels DEATH through various light and dark realms as he tries to redeem his brother WAR, the horseman who was blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse in Darksiders.
Featuring a dramatically larger world, full weapon and armour upgrade systems as well as bigger and more challenging dungeons and vast array of new enemies and bosses, Darksiders II strives to improve on every aspect of the original hit.
Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President of Core Games commented: “We have taken the best parts of Darksiders and improved on them with a host of new mechanics and features. You will see great things from this epic game.”
Darksiders II is scheduled to be available for console and PC in calendar 2012, for more information check www.Darksiders.com .
