Horseman of the Apocalypse up next in Darksiders franchise

Not long after gamers got official confirmation that there was in fact a Darksiders 2 in the works came the announcement that there also will be a new protagonist for the franchise. This time around the main character is going to be the second Horseman of the Apocalypse who will be working hard in an effort to clear the name of his brother. Unfortunately, Death is going to have a difficult time doing so since surprise, surprise, he will be venturing through the Abyss worlds to do so.

How does 2 line up against Darksiders the first?

As you also might guess, Death is a very different type of Horseman which offers players new tools and skills to master marking a major difference between the original debut of the series. However, a great deal of the mechanics of game play and the levels seem to mirror what has already been seen in the first Darksiders. The new weapons that Death gets to play with however seem to be pretty impressive as can be seen in the trailer and of course he will pick up even more as he continues through the abyss.

New villains for Death to take on

It’s a good thing that Death is going to get some new weapons, because he is also going to come across many new characters that are supposedly worse than death itself. Most of the new villains believe that it is War’s (Death’s brother) fault that Apocalypse was started and thus are carrying a pretty dark hatred for Death. If you can follow this much, it is already easy to see that the plotline is pretty dark and twisted, but should be a great deal of fun if the trailer can be trusted.

Plot is sarcastically dark

As you might guess, with an apocalyptic theme, the plot is pretty dark but with a sarcastic overtone as the hero may be death, but he is still vigilantly fighting to help clear his brother in a weird alliance against life it would seem. While the details are hard to follow, the game play is pretty self-explanatory and plenty of horrific to thrill those who love a gory video game although it should be clear that Darksiders 2 is not one for the faint of heart.

Release date: Expected Q2 of 2012
