Our human condition has one final certainty, which is said to come at the hands of Death. Some believe in it as a force, while others like to think visually, imagining the life taker as a morbid creature holding a scythe. Either way, there’s no discounting its existence.
In Darksiders II, Death is a gothic, skull mask wearing badass. He’s the second of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to take on (digital) mythical creatures in brutal melee combat, using wince-worthy combos.
Most of us are aware of this, so THQ and Vigil Games have decided to go back in time with their latest trailer. Instead of showcasing gameplay action, the brief video takes us back in time to show how the terminating force has interacted with our race throughout its conflict filled history.
While you’re here, make sure to check out the game’s latest set of screenshots, which were unveiled along with the above trailer. To call them epic would be an understatement. This game cannot come soon enough.
