    Darksiders 2, the sequel to one of the best known games of this generation, will launch next week. Vigil Games and THQ have been teasing us with all new trailers and behind the scenes footage.
    Darksiders II takes place in the same time as the first Darksiders, except this time around, players can take control of Death.​
    The game takes place within the Underworld, as opposed to Earth, Your favorite characters, such as Samuel, Uriel, and Vulgrim are back.​


    Darksiders 2 will be available on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC from August 14.
    The Wii U version is still in development.

    Plus the release date has been known for a while.

    However, I'll move this to General Gaming since it seems like a worthwhile thread for discussing the game.

    I was so "meh" about the first game. It didn't really do anything new & the story was uninteresting. Normally, that is fine nothing needs to be reinvented or have good stories but the game was kinda bland for me.

    Also it is really "one of best known games of this generation"? Always had it down as one of those filler games, the kinda that if they were released in Feb-April or September-November they would have been bypassed by other games.

    August 14th?....Steam has it down for the 20th, i guess it must of been put back.

    With the release so soon and only trailers and previews to be found and no reviews, alarm bells start to ring for me.

    The game does look impressive in the trailers, but i like to know how a game plays before making the purchase.

    I think that's quite an overstatement.

    Anyway, the first game didn't look all that interesting, so I gave it a pass. I can't say this one looks any better (and really, this has to be one of the silliest looking incarnations of Death ever to grace a game console).

    For USA it was brought forward to 14th, I think to avoid being out at the same time as Sleeping Dogs & the new Transformers game. Also normally nowadays reviews appear sometime around the same day, I'm sure the online outlets will have their reviews out this weekend.

    PC version is the typical port job, not much in terms custom-ability, no AA option either.

    Game itself, bleh pretty much the same as the first one just with some new bits that don't really do much to get over the "done this already" feel. A lot of cues from Zelda and other games like it, kinda boring to be honest which is a shame but no worries as Sleeping Dogs will sure eat some of my time.
