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.
For any professional wrestling/WWE fans out there, yesterday, THQ revealed a complete roster list for the upcoming WWE ’13. Included are a number of Attitude-era superstars (think 1990s-early 2000s), as well as attires and looks from those periods of current superstars, including the likes of the Undertaker and Mark Henry. The above is a trailer for the upcoming release, and there will also be DLC in the form of AJ and Damien Sandow. Look for the game to release October 30th in the US and November 1st in the UK and Australia.
Check after the jump for the roster list.
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!
Darksiders II is now scheduled to release globally in August 2012, rather than June as previously announced.
The official announcement added that, “this is great news for the team at Vigil, because it allows additional time for polish and to ensure that all aspects of Darksiders II meet the high-quality bar the team is targeting. In game development, more time is always a good thing for quality and the Vigil team is dedicated to providing the definitive Darksiders experience.”
