Darksiders II was revealed to be Game Informer’s cover story for July and today THQ has released a trailer for the title which seeks to bridge the gap between the two games. In an effort to save his brother War from being destroyed, Death sought out his own answers to the events that occurred in Darksiders 1. Game Informer was the first one to receive the trailer that you can find below, and in case it is taken down you can still view it on their website.
Besides setting up the story for Darksiders II we also see the horseman Death in action as well as see him riding upon his horse, which is called Despair. It seems that THQ is taking at least a few liberties with the whole four horsemen of the apocalypse thing, but at least the game still looks as good as the first one did.
