Darksiders 2: New ‘Behind the Mask’ Video Details the Look of Death’s World
Death never quite looked this good. Of course, the death we are talking about is the awesome butt-kicking character in the upcoming action adventure hack and slash apocalypse-themed title from Vigil Games, Darksiders 2.
The upcoming game has a new video out and it clues us in on just how much effort went into making the game’s world. The video makes it clear that the game’s world is more open than in the first Darksiders. Of course, it is not a fully open-world game but this latest evolution to a more open system looks like a really good step forward and it definitely will have an impact on the gameplay tremendously. Simply put Vigil Games succeeded in making Death look really good.
While the previous Darksiders installment focused on the adventures of War, Darksiders focuses on another member of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, Death. War is convicted by the Charred Council and is sentenced to stay on Earth. His crime? Starting the Apocalypse too early. Outraged by this injustice, Death goes on a mission to the Nether Realms to find proof of his brother’s innocence.
Expect a lot more of the hard hitting action of the previous title in this coming installment. Darksiders 2 hits store shelves come June 26.
