Darksiders II Arena Survival Mode and New Game+ Revealed
Written Tuesday, August 07, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
A few new additions to Darksiders II have been revealed, with the Arena Survival Mode offering 100 unique waves of enemies to battle, and New Game+ giving you the chance to play through the game again with all of your equipment and upgrades intact. You'll be needing all the help you can get too with the game's unlockable Nightmare Mode that ramps up the difficulty significantly and is unlocked upon finishing the game.
Arena Survival Mode takes place in the Crucible arena where after every five waves, Death is rewarded with a prize. You can either take the prize and end the arena action, or gamble the item to fight for another fives waves and earn something even better. You'll need to beat all 100 waves to gamble and go all the way to garner the best stuff. Should you fall during combat, you'll get nothing.
As well as being able to use your customised Death with all of his armour and abilities in New Game+, you'll also be able to carry him over to the game's planned DLC campaign missions. Check out the trailer and screenshots from the newly unveiled modes below. Darksiders II is out on August 14th, 2012.
