Death alive and thriving in the latest Darksiders II trailer
No longer flying under the radar, developer, Vigil Games’ Darksiders series looks to make a splash this August with the release of Darksiders II. Having already done a tour with War, Darksiders II shifts focus onto his slightly more cantankerous horseman brother, Death.
See the angel of dark and light in action as he stems a tide of demons who’d like nothing better than to have at the flock of church goers cowering inside their doomed sanctuary.
Ordinarily the personification of Death is somewhat of a paltry skeletal figure with scythe in hand looking something like this or this. The Death of Darksiders II however is a dual-scythe toting emotionless (notice the lack of a mouth) killing machine. The horseman is swift as he is imposing.
Look for Darksiders II to make itself available this August (14 US/21 UK) and keep up to date with us as we will surely be covering what is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated games of the summer. Before you go let us know what you think of the trailer’s combination of live action and CGI.
