Death is on a quest for his brother's redemption. Playing as Death, you'll learn that he is not one to be messed with. Taking place during the events of the first game, Death will have to go through many worlds to save his brother from being wrongly accused of unleashing Armageddon onto the world. I think it goes without saying, that Death is a "Bad Ass".
On your adventures you'll be traversing worlds on your trusty horse Despair, dual wield many different deadly scythes, use a myriad of powerful secondary weapons and equip various pieces of armor.
You'll also most likely recognize Michael Wincott, most notably known as Top Dollar from The Crow, as Death himself.
You won't have to wait long for Darksiders II as it will be available on store shelves next week, on August 14th.
Launching on Aug. 14, 2012, Darksiders II follows the exploits of Death, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, in an action-packed tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game. This epic journey propels Death through various light and dark realms as he tries to redeem his brother War, the Horseman blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse in Darksiders.
