71w ago - THQ UK Interactive Marketing Manager Mike Richardson has shared a video today proclaiming that The Creatures of Darksiders II officially welcome death on the PS3 entertainment system this August.
To quote: We've just released the first all-gameplay trailer for Darksiders II, which sees the most feared of the horseman of the apocalypse, Death, going up against some of the creatures from the game.
The Ancient. The Corrupted. The Holy. The Damned... Death comes for all.
The trailer shows off several key characters from the game, but we wanted to provide additional context as the game marches towards its August 14th release date.
Like his fellow Horsemen, Death is of a race known as Nephilim - among the most powerful beings in the Universe. When mankind received the prize of Eden, Absalom - leader of the Nephilim - led his armies against Heaven and Hell in an attempt to steal it back. For this crime, the Charred Council condemned the Nephilim to destruction.
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were granted a reprieve from this fate on the condition they aid the Council's victory over their kin. The Horsemen accepted, but it was Death who bore the greatest burden of guilt...

198w ago - Today THQ's Global Brand Manager Clint Chapman has revealed that a Darksiders PS3 demo will be hitting PSN this week.
To quote: It's been over a month since Darksiders released with near-universal critical praise, and the team at Vigil Studios is still hard at work. On Thursday, Vigil releases a demo for Darksiders.
This isn't your typical demo, however. It packs an unprecedented 90 minutes of gameplay, encompassing the entire first dungeon of the game: the Twilight Cathedral.
I had a chance to talk to Vigil's Creative Director and comic book legend, Joe Madureira (Joe Mad) – along with composers Mike Reagan and Cris Valesco – to get some more info on the demo.
Now that Darksiders has been out for a few weeks, what do you think about the fans' reactions to the game?
Joe: We are incredibly excited to finally get Darksiders into people's hands! The response has been fantastic. We already have armies of ravenous fans clamoring for a sequel, and that's a dream come true for us.
For Vigil, the development of Darksiders was almost as epic a journey...
