Today we get a new live-action trailer for Darksiders II titled The Last Sermon.
The Last Sermon stars Game of Thrones’ James Cosmo and tells a story of mankind’s last hours on earth after War is tricked into prematurely bringing about the apocalypse.
“After War is imprisoned for bringing about the apocalypse, Death’s whereabouts are shrouded in mystery,” commented Jim Huntley, Vice President of Global Brand Marketing. ”The Last Sermon gives fans an idea of what he may have been up to during that time.”
As well as the general release, an extended director’s cut is available at the Darksiders Facebook Page. Check it out.
Today we get another behind the scenes glimpse at the making of Darksiders II.
Join General Manager David Adams, Producer Ryan Stefanelli and Creative Director Joe Madureira as they discuss the parallel stories between both games and what you can expect from Death when the game releases in August.
Thanks to the Darksiders II Facebook Page, we now know the final box art for the game.
Continuing the tradition set by the original, the box art will feature new protagonist Death on his demon steed. And yeah, it looks pretty awesome. Check it out below.
Just about three more months until the sequel to Darksiders, one of the breakout hits of 2010, is released. As a huge fan of the original Darksiders, any new information on Darksiders II is a good thing. Even if its a fully CGI trailer that ends in a cliffhanger. I’ll pretty much take anything I can get right now.
Darksiders II is set to release on June 26 in North America (June 28 in the UK) on XB360, PS3, PC and Wii U.
It seems we now have a solid release date for Darksiders II.
THQ has confirmed, through the Darksiders Official Twitter Account, when Death will be ready to ride.
Oh by the way…. You can get your hands on @Darksiders II on June 26th #Darksiders2
I personally can’t wait. The original Darksiders came out of nowhere for me and became one of my favorite games of 2010. Here’s to hoping this sequel doesn’t disappoint.
Today we got a little bit more information on Darksiders II.
