In the two years since I finished the original Darksiders, I have occasionally hit up YouTube to re-experience the shiver-inducing awesomeness of that climactic final cutscene. That game has become an enduring favorite of mine, an honest-to-God sleeper hit that I’d never even heard of before its release, and the sequel places alongside Bioshock Infinite and Company of Heroes 2 on my Most Anticipated list.
But if I had needed any reminder on how much I love the tone of this series, this trailer would have jogged my memory right quick.
Just three more weeks…just three more weeks….
Darksiders II will launch on the PS3, 360, and PC on August 14th.
