Death, Cut Your Fingernails: Darksiders II

By John Walker on January 26th, 2012.

You're bound to hurt someone with those.

I’m so tired this morning that if horseman Death came charged toward me, I’d limply reach out a hand to touch his scythe and embrace the sweet, sweet sleep that awaits. But fortunately he’s fictional, and I’ll wake up soon. He is, however, to feature in Darksiders II, and if you needed more proof than my word, there are screenshots of said game below. They’re new, and they’ve got big, cross monsters in them.

Death Offers No Peace: Darksiders II

By John Walker on December 12th, 2011.

Darksiders II was also revealed at the ridiculous VGA Spike thing. THQ’s sequel to, well, Darksiders, has been quiet since July, when we took a look at it. But it was waiting for the annual fartfest to reveal itself a new teaser trailer, and indeed its release date. Which will be, oh, “Summer 2012″. Well, it’s better than “TBA”.

Reaping The Benefits: Darksiders 2 Preview

By Quintin Smith on July 26th, 2011.

Their big front teeth are each the size of a human
Death, the second horseman (and hoarse man) of the Apocalypse is locked in battle with an enormous beetle. Deftly rolling out of the way of its charge attack with an agility never showcased by War in the first game, Death promptly delivers a series of all-business, blink-and-you’ll-miss-’em slashes with his scythe. And what should come tumbling out from the beetle? Viscous, nightshade-coloured ichor? No. Numbers. For Darksiders 2, Vigil are taking the first game’s paltry handful of RPG elements and pushing them as hard as they can.

Darksiders 2 E3 Trailer Is Pulp, Predictable

By Quintin Smith on June 3rd, 2011.

I AM BECOME DEATH, DESTROYER OF MEDIOCRITY

Jim posted this yesterday, assuming it was a leak and that it would be pulled down quickly. He was right on both counts, the smooth little genius, but now the same trailer’s been officially released and awaits you below. Seeing as this is a video of a video game you might possibly play down the line, in watching this trailer you are, essentially, gazing into your own future. You ever think of it like that?

Death Becomes You: Darksiders 2 Glimpse

By Jim Rossignol on June 2nd, 2011.


First there was ultra-bombastic supernatural sword-swinger Darksiders, and now there is two of it. The sequel, which was announced earlier this week, will features a different horseman of the apocalypse as its main protagonist – Death instead of War – and you can see a little of him in action below. I’m afraid the linked trailer quality for this one is in Super(bad) Grain-o-vision, as if filmed from a TV set in the 1980s, but I’ll try and update it with something a bit better if I manage to dig it out. EDIT: New vid up. Presumably it’s a leak of some kind, so go take a look before it gets zapped.

Death To The Apocalypse: Darksiders II

By John Walker on June 1st, 2011.

Is this too much of their image? They'll threaten to sue me again, won't they?

Did you play Darksiders? THQ’s hack-n-slashing action-them-to-bits had a nine month delay before its release on PC, which always subdues the reaction somewhat. When Jim got hold of it last September he was having a lovely time, right up until a dumb boss fight at the end of a long walk and unskippable cutscene kept splatting him with cars. But until that point it was offering lots of fighty-fun. So perhaps a sequel will provide a more refined pathway to an ending?
