Darksiders 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the surprise hit, Darksiders, developed by Vigil Games. The game is not quite yet complete and there are not very many updates recently to report, but we do know that Darksiders 2 will be a Wii U launch title. Other than that, we have some pretty epic Darksiders 2 screenshots and a pretty fancy trailer – courtesy of Gamescon 2011.
Check out the gallery of screenshots below:
Death dragging his huge axe towards a boss creature is awesome and really emphasizes the weight of the weapons. Do not expect to see very blocky or overly cartoon-like grahpics, everthing here is definitely an over-sized aesthetic – which is super appealing.
It is made very obvious that Vigil Games has invested a lot of effort to the visuals of Darksiders 2. We can only hope that this work ethic exists in the game’s development as well. As far as we know, Darksiders 2 will not have a co-op mode, but everything so far promises a very entertaining single-player experience.
Darksiders 2 will be available for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC, and Wii U sometime in 2012.
