THQ has just announced that the second downloadable content pack for Darksiders II, Abyssal Forge, will be available to download on Oct. 30, for $9.99.
The Abyssal Forge is a living machine designed to harness the unfocussed dark power of the Abyss and create the most powerful legendary weapons. The Maker who built this abomination, known only as the Mad Smith, was shunned by his own people and sealed away in the Shadow Lands with his creation. However, the forge hasn’t remained dormant all those years of captivity; it has constructed a vast army and now threatens all creation.
The vast swamp-like Shadow Lands added by this DLC is a new gameplay zone with an entirely new visual look, including two challenging new dungeons, new enemies to best, secrets to uncover and unique legendary loot to collect. Tailored towards the most competent Darksiders II players, the Abyssal Forge will test your metal against the hardest enemies and puzzles yet.
The first Darksiders II DLC, Argul’s Tomb is coming our way on Tuesday September, 25th. It will be available for $6.99 on the PSN, or free to those that got a Limited Edition version of Darksiders II. I loved this game, and look forward to playing this next week!
In Darksiders II, you play as the horseman Death, in a story that runs parallel to War’s events in the original Darksiders game. As seen in Darksiders, War has been falsely accused of triggering the Apocalypse, and in Darksiders 2, Death defies orders and sets out on a personal mission to prove his brother’s innocence.
Darksiders 2 promised to feature a dramatically larger world, full weapon and armor upgrade systems, as well as bigger and more challenging dungeons and vast array of new enemies and bosses, basically improving on every aspect of the original game. The question is does it?
Darksiders II hits stores nationwide in just one week, and to celebrate THQ has released the final Darksiders II gameplay trailer featuring the perspective of Death himself.
I have been playing this and will have a review up soon, but let me just say that if you are a Darksiders fan, then you are going to love Darksiders 2!
“Launching on Aug. 14, 2012, Darksiders II follows the exploits of Death, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, in an action-packed tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game. This epic journey propels Death through various light and dark realms as he tries to redeem his brother War, the Horseman blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse in Darksiders.”
I had a chance to play this at E3 and again at Comic Con, and it pleasantly surprised me. I actually went out and bought the first one to play through it before I pick this up on August 14th. Great game!
Hit the jump for some new screens!
