My favourite Zelda-style game of the past decade was the original Darksiders. I loved nearly every minute of my experience with that game, and as such, I was incredibly excited when they announced a sequel.
Darksiders 2 will star War’s brother Death, and will contain a separate story during the same time period. Upon hearing of War’s accusation, Death – realizing that War wouldn’t have started the apocalypse early – rides forth in search of a way to clear his brother’s name. Darksiders 2 will contain a much more dynamic gear system including several different armor sets. Additionally, they’re making the game much larger than the first one, having been quoted as saying that one of their quest hubs will contain more content than the entirety of Darksiders 1. Naturally, in order to get things to that size, the game will include a lot of optional content, unlike the first one – so it won’t be a completely linear experience.
I simply can’t wait to see how it all turns out – but alas, I do have to… but only until June – or so it seems.
