For the most part the trailer for Darksiders 2 discusses the differences between Death and War, the ‘Hero’ of the first game. Where War was a brawler, Death is supposed to be a more elegant fighter. The team behind Darksiders 2 describe Death as a more agile and cunning fighter than War.
The video also briefly shows off some of the environments in the game. Instead of taking place on Earth Darksiders 2 will be exploring demon and angel cities as well as the city of death.
Darksiders 2 will be on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC but it doesn’t have a specific release date yet beyond 2012.
