Listen to this article

Full Title: Darksiders 2
Developers: Vigil Games
Publisher: THQ
Platforms: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, & PC
Release Date: Summer 2012

Back in January of 2010, Vigil Games and THQ embarked on the journey of creating a game inspired by the controversial phenomenon known as the Apocalypse. Aptly titled Darksiders, the hack and slash action-adventure title went on to receive numerous accolades for both story and character development. As The Horseman War, the player is given the task of preserving the balance between Heaven and Hell by forcing a truce between both kingdoms. The end result is a series of events that lead to a renewed war requiring the assistance of the remaining 3 Horsemen Of The Apocalypse. In Darksiders 2, Death becomes the main character and thus introduces a new style of play and personality into the mix.

The developer diary below dives deeper into the Death character and shows various gameplay sequences to give you an idea of how the franchise has evolved. Darksiders 2 is scheduled for release on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC this Summer and as a Wii U launch title later this Fall.
