First Darksiders 2 details confirmed

Death to jump in the saddle.

Death takes over from War as the lead character in the forthcoming Darksiders 2, publisher THQ has announced.

The sequel's story will run parallel with that of the acclaimed 2010 adventure, and sees Death embark on a quest to redeem his brother – the aforementioned War – and save mankind.

According to THQ's announcement, on his way he'll discover that an ancient grudge may represent an even greater threat to the future of the human race.

Due out some time in 2012 on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, THQ is promising a "dramatically larger world", weapon and armour upgrade systems, bigger dungeons and a wealth of new enemies and bosses to take down.

"We have taken the best parts of Darksiders and improved on them with a host of new mechanics and features. You will see great things from this epic game," promised THQ core games chief Danny Bilson.
