Darksiders 2 is a sequel to the surprisingly popular Darksiders from 2010. It’s set in the same time period as the first game though players will be a different Horseman of the Apocalypse. This time you’ll be playing as Death as he wanders the cities of demons and angels trying to prove the innocence of his brother, War.
Death plays a bit more fluidly and elegantly than the brawler that was War. The game world is supposed to be much bigger than the original game featuring more dungeons and areas to explore than the whole of the first game. Interestingly, the other horseman — Strife and Fury — should be available in the sequel as well in some capacity.
At the moment Darksiders 2 will be out for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. For now the game is only slated for a June 2012 release but no specific day has been set.
