Death Strikes in latest Darksiders II trailer

THQ and Vigil Games have released the first in a two-part series of CG trailers, entitled ‘Death Strikes’, set to showcase the central protagonist from Wii U launch title, Darksiders II.

Slicing enemies apart, wielding overtly large axes, and taking on increasingly large foes, it hints at exactly what players will be able to expect from the anticipated sequel.

It follows an intertwined storyline with that of the original game, that sees Death, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, as the central protagonist. Death finds himself propelled through light and dark realms as he attempts to redeem his brother War, who found himself blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse.

Darksiders II is confirmed to be a launch title for the Wii U, due out later this year.
