Let’s get this out of the way first shall we … I loved the first Darksiders game. Playing as War was a lot of fun. When the sequel was announced and they introduced the next Horseman, Death, I was excited. I have a couple of things to share about Darksiders II and the first one is this really kick ass creative art of the central character Death.
If this image doesn’t get you ready to play this game, then I don’t know what will. It’s perfect as a wallpaper for your phone as you can see on mine! The second bit of news is really just a reminder that there will be a novel accompanying the game’s release. I know most of you are really into following a game’s story especially when it’s more to the universe.
DARKSIDERS: THE ABOMINATION VAULT, written by author Ari Marmell, will take place millennia before the events of the first game of the Darksiders series. Random House Worlds, the Random House Publishing Group’s intellectual property creation and development group, will also develop the IP bible for the Darksiders universe.
In DARKSIDERS: THE ABOMINATION VAULT, the Horsemen of the Apocalypse (beings charged with maintaining the Balance between the forces of Heaven and Hell) have uncovered a plot to resurrect ancient weapons of unimaginable power. Death, with the help of his compatriot War, must track down and neutralize the mysterious individuals behind the scheme before the entire universe is plunged into a devastating conflict.
How bad ass is this?
