A new story trailer has been released for THQ’s upcoming sequel to the hit action game Darksiders, with the new installment featuring a new lead character, War’s brother, and possibly the most feared horseman, Death. In what seems like the an ironic twist to his name, Death may be the only hope for the last living men on a war-torn post-apocalyptic earth:
The official synopsis:
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 savior? Darksiders followed the story of WAR, wrongly accused of starting the apocalypse, on a quest to reclaim lost honor and take revenge on those who wronged him.
Darksiders II is scheduled for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on August 14.
