    So a new character that plays out at the same time as the first one.

    Linky

    Bit of a shame after the end of the first one! Wanted a continuation really...

    Oh well more Darksiders can't be bad! Possibly not until 2013 though...which is poo.

    Speak the truth hussy!

    Yea I'm disappointed with this news. Playing out at the same time is just lame. :/

    That end did get me wet for some sort of continuation, but it'd be nice to play as another Horseman or one of the angels maybe.

    That is a bit disappointing. It seems strange to say a sequel wouldn't make sense when the first game set up for a sequel.

    The end does give you the impression that the sequel will involve you roaming around with a team of badasses.

    The only thing they can do is set it in heaven or something. Then set no.3 in hell...

    So, five games confirmed then. One for each horseman, then a final 'now you get ALL the horsemen!' wrap-up.

    I don't really mind - as long as the gameplay is the same, I'm happy. Still my 2010 GOTY.

    Do Murbal it's brilliant!

    Not before you platinum every Trials track though.

    I did love this though was our very own Zelda for the 360.

    I'm kind of hoping they find their own groove next time. I found the first one interesting but lacking in 'soul' - it felt very much like a "Frankenstein's monster" game, all stolen and reanimated parts but without that original spark that would have made it its own thing rather than just a stitched-together tribute to better games.

    I think they must have originally planned for a 4 horsemen badassathon considering the ending but they couldn't get it to work or something so changed it. Could also explain why it may not be ready until 2013.

    Could the lead be Uthane?

    fuckbiscuits, why didn't I buy the original on Steam in the sale just now?

    Got it in my head that this should be played on console.

    I wouldn't like it if the whole game is based on Ulthane. I'd rather he stay as a supporting character.

    It's a shame if it's true they have dropped the idea of bringing in the other horsemen - I would have loved to see what Joe Mad would come up with for their design.

    I just finished Darksiders and I was a little disappointed with it after all the praise it got. Maybe it's just not really my type of game, the endless environmental/room puzzles just got really samey and boring. I did like some of the pretty epic boss battles.

    A reveal is expected this week according to Danny Bilsons tweet. Likely will be on the game informer cover or revealed as part of GTTVs pre E3 special.

    I bought the original game when it first came out and I still haven't finished it. I was really enjoying it as well. Knowing that the sequel is due to be announced soon I think I may play through it soon. Is it a good idea to avoid reading about the sequel until I finish the first?

    Death is the main character.

    Hmm whilst that does give them an excuse to just make the first game again but with a different main character, I'm glad that they're at least continuing with the horsemen part. Who knows? Maybe we'll eventually get to have awesome 4-player co-op in Darksiders 5...

    What a waste of a cliffhanger.

    Can video games be a force for good? My latest article says yes!

    1:18 of high quality gameplay footage.
  • Deleted user 20 July 2011 13:57:17
    That looks pretty good, the animation seems to have gotten a lot more work, seems more fluid.

    The charatcer design of Death is a little bland. He looks like Raziel from the SOul Reaver series has been to the gym.

    I also have another problem with prequels or games that run concurrently narratively.

    We already know how the game ends so any sense of tension or risk involved in the story is completely gone.

    How awesome would it be if the first have of the game ran concurrently and then actually, you meet War and get to get on with what we should be playing anyway :p

    You know what's going to happen at the end of 99% of games anyway, so it does't really matter. I hope they do every horseman with the concurrent storyline, then the 5th game can carry on the rest of the story. I'd be happy with that.
