War’s out for Darksiders 2, set during the original game

Darksiders 2 may have been pushed back but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to find out as much as we can about it now. In fact THQ’s Danny Bilson only just revealed the most enticing details for the sequel yet at the IGDA Leadership Forum.

“When we do the Darksiders sequel, it’ll be a different character and take place simultaneously to the other story,” he said. “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.”

Who else could we take control of? Well we can think of three other characters that might be fun to play as in the Darksiders universe but they’re kind of no brainers…
