As if everything we’ve seen so far from Darksiders II wasn’t cool enough already, they’ve just announced an Arena Survival mode along with a new Game+ mode. Read on for the details and a handful of screenshots from the Arena challenge.
From the Press Release:
Continue your life after death with the just announced Darksiders II arena survival mode, which allows players to continue advancing their character even after finishing the main game.
The combat arena will provide the ultimate challenge for Darksiders II players. After completing five of the mode’s 100 unique waves, gamers will be given the option of taking a prize or continuing for another five waves for a chance at even better items. However, if they fall in combat, they will leave with nothing. Only the most skilled players will have what it takes to best all 100 waves and claim the greatest prizes.
In addition Darksiders II will feature a New Game+ mode, which will allow players to carry over their Death for a new game retaining all of their skills and equipment.
Jim Huntley, Vice President of Global Brand Marketing commented: “The Arena challenge mode and the New Game+ function are the perfect way to continue building the ultimate Death even after finishing the main game. This upgraded and customized character can then be carried over into the upcoming DLC campaign missions.”
Darksiders II follows the exploits of DEATH, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in an action-packed tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game. This epic journey propels DEATH through various light and dark realms as he tries to redeem his brother WAR, the horseman blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse in Darksiders.
Darksiders II will be available for PC and consoles on August 14, 2012.
