Darksiders II Announced
God, why can't they just call it 'Darksiders 2' - I hate this Roman numeral fetish. Publisher THQ and dev studio Vigil Games announced the sequel to Darksiders: Wrath of War, currently in development for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.

Now, here's the bit I like. Apparently, Darksiders II tells the story of Death, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. The plot unfurls at the same time as the events from the original Darksiders game take place. Death goes "through various light and dark realms as he tries to redeem his brother War, the horseman who was blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse in Darksiders."

The sequel to the excellent action game is going to bring "a dramatically larger world, full weapon and armor upgrade systems as well as bigger and more challenging dungeons and vast array of new enemies and bosses."

Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President of Core Games, commented: "We have taken the best parts of Darksiders and improved on them with a host of new mechanics and features. You will see great things from this epic game."

Again, you'll be able to try this one out on consoles and PC. Be on the lookout for Darksiders II come 2012. More info available via

Awesome II in fact.

I understand many people didn't much care for Darksiders, thinking it a lame (and too easy) mix of Zelda and God of War...

...but fuck those people, I don't really know why, but I liked the game. I'm looking forward to the sequel.

I thought it was good, if a bit repetitive in places. It'll be mainly interesting to see how they make Death different than War - or if they do at all.

Thats all fine and dandy, but I wonder how are they gonna tackle Famine?

Play as Famine, a black horse rider of the Apocalypse with his mighty, imbalanced scale. Starve your foes by taking control of their food industries and selling its products back to them 10 times their normal price. Become victorious, or filthy rich, in the ever waging war between heaven and hell. Mercilessly empty your enemy's bellies and ruin their economy in Darksiders: Famine Tycoon.

It would be shit. I hate tycoons.

darksiders stole any and all creative ideas known to mankind, it played like every other action game out there and you know what ? it was great.

the game managed to mix things together well, it ran smooth as silk and it was fun in that more or less mindless way.

it felt like playing Devil May Cry.....only it didn't suck.

Amen to that, Voodoo!

Very pleased to hear this news. It's good that an underrated, but very good game is getting a sequel in times where it seems that only games that can have an abbreviated name (GTA, CoD, GoW, etc, etc) can spawn a series.

More of this sort of thing!
