Darksiders 2 Combat And Traversal To Be Faster Than First Game


Darksiders II stars a different Horseman from the first game. Where the original Darksiders put you in the shoes of War, this time you play as Death. Vigil Games say that Death is a more calculating character and an opportunist.


Both traversal and combat will be faster in Darksiders II, and Death can either wield a single strong weapon or dual-wield two weaker ones. His primary weapon is a scythe, which can either be detached into two separate weapons or as a single weapon. Other weapons include axes and claws, iron fists and guns.


THQ recently released new screenshots of the game, which is slated for release this summer on existing platforms, and on the Wii U at a later point.
