This morning THQ has confirmed that Darksiders 2 – the sequel to one of the biggest surprise hits of the past few years – is currently due for release in the summer of 2012, and the publisher are prepping the game to become a launch title for Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U console.
The latest trailer for the game, entitled ‘Death Lives’, is embedded at the bottom of this page.
Awakened by the End of Days, Death, the most feared of the legendary Four Horsemen, embarks upon a quest to restore mankind, and redeem his brother’s name. Along the way, the Horseman discovers that there are far worse things than an earthly Apocalypse, and that an ancient grudge may threaten all of Creation . . . Can DEATH really become mankind’s saviour? The original Darksiders, released in January 2010, received critical acclaim including the Best Fantasy Game 2010 award from IGN. Darksiders followed the story of WAR, wrongly accused of starting the apocalypse, on a quest to reclaim lost honour and take revenge on those who wronged him.
Darksiders 2 is currently due for release on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Wii U in the summer of 2012.
