Darksiders II: Go Behind The Scenes And Visit Death's New World

The first title spawned a healthy number of loyal fans, and those followers have June 26 circled on their calendars this year.

Why? Because that's when the highly anticipated Darksiders II launches. In the first game, we played as War, but now it's time to step into the shoes of another rider of the apocalypse: Death.

They're calling this a "parallel sequel" in that the events of the plot take place alongside the original title's. So in other words, while War is waging his battle (an adventure you completed back in 2010), Death is trying to clear his brother's name. It's a great idea and if you want a new behind-the-scenes look at the gameplay and overall art style, THQ has you covered.

Remember, developer Vigil Games is going all out with this one; they're making it a deeper, more open quest, so much so that it's almost bordering on an action/RPG...that ought to appeal to a whole bunch of different gamers, don't you think?

Darksiders is an action RPG, it's going to take me forever to get to the end of the first one so I'll take my time on getting DII. I just hope they don't ditch the Zelda style, that word "open" scares me.

I played the first one and enjoyed it.. but i found the graphics for the first one a little sub-par? or is it just me?
seeing the trailers.. it doesn't seem like the 2nd one improved much.. or am i wrong?

The graphics get pretty rough in the first, but the gameplay is old school and worthwhile. I imagine they will be upgraded in 2 but I wouldn't hold my breath for anything too amazing.

I don't know how I feel about playing in parallel to the first game. I want to know what happens after the first one. I'm not going into detail about it, as it would contain spoilers, but how can they end on a cliffhanger ending and then decide to release a parallel sequel? It still looks pretty good, but way to keep us hanging even longer.

if the series stays popular maybe after all 4 horsemen get a game they can continue the cliffhanger, or maybe the end of II will gel with it. Who knows?
