Darksiders II releases for all platforms (except for the Wii U) on August 14th. Darksiders II is the sequel to the original Darksiders, which was an action game similar to the Zelda franchise which saw you play as the first of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, War, as you tried to take revenge for being tricked into causing the Apocalypse to come early. The sequel will place you in the shoes of the second Horseman, Death, as you try to uncover evidence that War has been tricked into starting the Apocalypse; the game takes place parallel to the first game, placing you in concurrent but separate events from the first game.
