Death Comes For All in the First All-Gameplay Darksiders II Trailer

The first all-gameplay trailer has been released for THQ’s Darksiders II featuring never before seen footage and six all new screenshots.

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.

Fervent fans awaiting the title can pre-order it at associated retailers as of now while the rest can cross their fingers in the hope that they will be able to battle foes with the famed character, Death. Darksiders II will be hitting shelves August 14.

The character Death is shown wielding an over-sized weapon just like he did in the first installment, however, fans will be surprised to see the new additions that THQ included in the second title including a number of combat mechanics that make for a more robust experience for players.

The series may receive a lot of criticism due to its emphasis on ‘God of War style gameplay’ but even the most hardcore God of War fans cannot deny that THQ’s take on the hack-and-slash genre brings something new to the table. And for those of you who haven’t had the opportunity to take a leap into the fold, Darksiders is forgiving to newcomers so take a stab at it (no pun intended) come August 14 to partake in the raw carnage that will ensue.
