Darksiders 2

Darksiders 2 has made its first official public appearance, via the cover of US retailer mag Game Informer, which features cover art drawn by comic book luminary Joe Madureira (see bottom).
"Fans of the first Darksiders are already familiar with Vigil's fiction - the eternal war that rages between the forces of Heaven and Hell," the mag says. "With Darksiders II, Vigil looks to deliver a richer experience as players explore more dungeons, talk with a variety of NPCs, and experiment with a detailed loot system.

"The horseman War has been sidelined, so it's up to his brother, Death, to travel through the world of the Abyss and attempt to restore humanity after its destruction during the Apocalypse."
 THQ core games boss Danny Bilson suggested that Darksiders 2 will be bigger than the first.

"Darksiders did about twice as much as Red Faction," he said. "It's done pretty well. I believe that franchise building isn't about a zillion units out of the gate, it's about building a fan base, building a community of people that dig it, listening to them, doing what you think is good... 

"The second one will be twice as big as the first one and the third one you get to big numbers. That's my strategy."

Sounds awesome!
