Rather than picking up where the previous Darksiders left off, the story for THQ’s sequel will run parallel to that of the first and invite players to take control of Death rather than his brother War. Although this trailer doesn’t show any gameplay or reveal anything new about the game’s plot or setting, it certainly serves it’s purpose and leaves you pumped up for the release on August 14th.
According to developers, Death will be a more cunning, calculated, and elegant fighter than his brother War. But don’t let that fool you — he still kicks his fair share of ass. Check out some of the other trailers that show off his improved agility and responsive fighting to get a better idea of what gameplay will look like.
