Watch “Death’s” Story in this New Darksiders 2 Trailer

If you’ve been living under a rock or you’re not a fan of awesome games, then you wouldn’t know that in Darksiders II there’s a new protagonist. Gone is War and his trusty steed and in his stead (see what I did there?) is Death.

Death, to be honest, isn’t as “charming” as War, but what he lacks in charisma, he more than makes up for in savagery.

In the trailer, we get to see how the game’s developers shape and create how Death’s story — and the game’s universe — will unfold. While, understandably, not much can be revealed, it’s still a nice insight into what goes on in creating a franchise with different protagonists.

Darksiders II will be out in August for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
