You as Death
Darksiders 2 Trailer
Arena Mode Trailer
for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Microsoft Windows and a launch tile late 2012 for Wii U.
Darksiders II is an action adventure game carrying on from it's extraordinarily well received predecessor (83% on Metacritic). Events are set in the same time period as before, a "parallel sequel" I'm told, but this time out you take control of the Horseman Death, instead of his brother War.
As Death you set out on a personal mission to find proof of your brother's innocence, enlisting the help of powerful beings from the Nether Realm as you saunter across city maps and dungeons that are collectively double the size of the original.
Finished the game, no problem! a new Arena Mode called the "Crucible" allows you to develop Death even further, with up to 100 levels of progressively more difficult enemies awaiting you with each wave. Not satisfied with that then a "New Game+" allows Death to retain all his items and skills and set about a replay with more difficult enemies and challenges.
Double the bang for your buck!?
