A new trailer has been released for Darksiders II showing that death doesn’t discriminate when it comes for us all. Darksiders II will release in August, but you can check out the new video now!
Awakened by the End of Days, Death, the most feared of the legendary Four Horsemen, embarks on a quest to redeem his brother’s name. Become the terrifying force which everything fears but nothing can escape. The original Darksiders, released in January 2010, received critical acclaim including the Best Fantasy Game 2010 award from IGN. Darksiders followed the story of WAR, wrongly accused of starting the apocalypse, on a quest to reclaim lost honor and take revenge on those who wronged him.
The Darksiders II Season Pass will entitle customers who pre-order the game via the shopTHQ to download the 2nd and 3rd DLC packs when they become available at no cost. All pre-orders will also automatically be upgraded to the Limited Edition version of the game which includes the first DLC drop, Argul’s Tomb. These DLC packs will include significant new single player content. The first drop, Argul’s Tomb, will become available roughly one month after the game ships. On top of the DLC content packs users who pre-order via the shopTHQ will also receive a code to unlock the exclusive Maker’s Armor and Scythe set. Featuring upgraded stats and a unique design this will help players make a start on Death’s quest.
ShopTHQ also has available stock of the Darksiders II Collector’s Edition which has sold out at all other retailers. The Collector’s Edition will include The Limited Edition version of the game as well as a life-sized replica Death Mask with display stand, a unique Shadow of Death armor and scythe set with enhanced stats, a digital copy of the Darksiders II sound-track and a hard-cover Darksiders II art book. The Collector’s Edition is available in limited quantities for $99 USD.
Darksiders II is scheduled to be available for console and PC in August 2012; a WiiU version is scheduled for release in the launch window.
