Last Darksiders II Trailer, In Death’s Own Words
His brother War wrongfully accused of igniting the apocalypse, Death sets out to bring ruin on all those that oppose him in order to…get everyone to believe him? There’s definitely more diplomatic ways of defending truth and virtue, sure. But we wouldn’t get to topple gargantuan enemies or even get to sink our scythe into anything if we went with “diplomatic.”

A flattering comparison, yeah, but I hope Darksiders II finds its own footing, defying comparison in its best moments. We’ll know when Death rides this Tuesday.
