The really cool Zelda style game Darksiders is getting a sequel and it will star a new character this time around. Danny Bilson, THQ executive vice president, revealed that the story of Darksiders 2 will be concurrent to Darksiders 1 during his keynote speech at the IGDA Leadership Forum. He said “There’s only one apocalypse — I couldn’t very well have four different apocalypses, one for each rider,” he then went on to say that they will be building upon the foundations of the original and introducing new game mechanics. The worst part of this news is that we probably won’t see the game for another 2 years.
Darksiders is essentially dark Zelda at it’s core, but that seems a bit dismissive. The game is very innovative in introducing combo heavy battles to the Zelda formula and an overall darker tone.
