  • THQ Revealed Major Details About Darksiders 2

    THQ has revealed some key information regarding Darksiders 2 a sequel to Joe Mad's inspired take on a post-apocalyptic Earth. At IGDA Leadership Forum Danny Bilson said that Darksiders 2 will feature new playable character with completely new mechanics and features.

    Darksiders 2

    "When we do the Darksiders sequel, it'll be a different character and take place simultaneously to the other story, There's only one apocalypse, I couldn't very well have four different apocalypses, one for each rider. It has some new mechanics and some very robust features that differentiate it a lot and grow it from the first game because you have to build on the first one, you can't repeat it. I think that's very important in franchise-building."
