Darksiders 2
Vigil's Jay Fitzloff Talks Darksiders II & Not Resting on Your Laurels
Written By
View author's profile

The original Darksiders was a title that came out of nowhere. Brilliantly crafted and a joy to play. Considering that it was Vigil's first console title and it was an untried-and-untested new IP, we never saw it coming.

We recently caught up with Darksiders II's Producer, Jay Fitzloff, to talk about the evolution of the franchise and asked the question everyone was curious about... why a new main character? We touch upon the new aspects of the game, the creative freedom the art team had with the sequel, Vigil's relationship with THQ, and of course, even touched upon THQ's recent restructuring. And if the words of Fitzloff weren't delightful enough - they are - there's plenty of gameplay to feast upon as well. It's a win-win for you guys.

To see what we had to say in our latest preview, head over there right now. Like, this second.

So 1 played like a Zelda game, and 2 plays like Prince of Persia.

Not that I'm complaining, I loved the first and have pre-ordered the second.

Took me a while to get to playing Darksiders but man when I finally got to it I had a blast. Definately going to get this ASAP, considering Death is just so much cooler to me than WAR already was, the added loot, RPG elements and overall improvements... Perfect game for me.

Loved the first one and id have to agree they should consider it a success, hopefully people have seen trailers for the 2nd and gone and bought the 1st one too. The loot system intrigues me and should make multiple playthroughs more fun.

@15/16 - I love loot as much as the next guy, but as far as story goes (a big part of why I loved the first game) it just doesn't make sense to me for this game.

Are they honestly saying that Death, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is going to kill some skeletons and then check to see if they have better gear?

I'll still love the game, I'm sure. I just wish they would have gone with an upgrade system instead. Just makes more sense to me.

I never played the first one, but now I plan on it.
I really like this guy as well, he seems to really love this game and he's very good at portraying how they design games FOR the fans.
