Darksiders II is shaping up to be the must have action-adventure title for the summer of 2012. This exciting sequel 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 gamers through various light and dark realms as they try to redeem Death’s brother War, the horseman who was blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse.
Darksiders II features a dramatically larger and darker world. Expect full weapon and armour upgrade systems, as well as more challenging dungeons, enemies and bosses. Darksiders II looks to improve on every aspect of the original game that made it a massive 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.”
THQ is rewarding gamers who preorder Darksiders II with a free upgrade to the Limited Edition. It will include the standard retail game along with a unique code allowing the purchaser the opportunity to download the game’s first single player downloadable content pack, Argul’s Tomb for free once it becomes available. Your journey begins August 14, 2012.
