THQ has officially confirmed that Darksiders II, sequel to the original game, will make its way to all three major platforms in 2012. Darksiders II will follow the journey of Death, one of the most feared of the four legendary horseman, in his attempt to redeem his brother War, the protagonist of the first game, the horsemen who was blamed for starting the Apocalypse.
The story of Death runs parallel to the events in the original game as he moves through various light and ldark realms in an attempt to re-gain the lost honor of his brother. Darksiders II is promising a larger world, full weapon and armour upgrade systems, bigger and more challenging dungeons and vast array of new enemies and bosses. Darksiders II strives to improve on every aspect of the original game with new features and core gameplay mechanics.
We will be hearing more about this game as we come close to E3 2011, may be a teaser ? or if the developers are generous enough, teaser with few gameplay shots. Either way, if they do exactly what are they are promising, it can be real hit considering original game had a solid formula.
