Starring James Cosmo (Game of Thrones) and entitled “The Last Sermon”, it’s embedded at the bottom of this page in abridged form. The full uncut version will be available to watch on the official Darksiders Facebook page shortly.
The Last Sermon, staring Game of Thrones’ James Cosmo tells a story of mankind’s last hours on earth after War is tricked into prematurely bringing about the apocalypse and portrays the sequel’s protagonist, Death, in a way fans haven’t seen him before. As well as the general release cinematic cut there will be an extended director’s cut which will be unveiled exclusively at Facebook.com/Darksiders.
And don’t forget that when you pre-order your copy of the game at zavvi.com on either Xbox 360, Playstation 3 or PC, you’ll receive some free DLC: Argul’s Tomb…
The Darksiders II Limited edition is available only for launch, and includes a code that allows free access to the Darksiders II “Arguls Tomb” expansion, the first DLC pack which will be available around 30 days from launch.
When released, this DLC pack will offer extra gameplay content, including a whole new dungeon to explore, further extending the Darksiders II experience.
Darksiders II is currently due for release on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC on Tuesday, August 21st 2012. A Nintendo Wii U version is expected to follow later in the year.
