Darksiders 2
Darksiders II Pre-Launch Gameplay Trailer Sees Scythe Action Aplenty

What will probably be the last pre-release gameplay trailer for Darksiders II has emerged, showing more of Death mixing it up, brandishing his trademark scythe and taking down hulking bosses.

It's all looking pretty spectacular ahead of the game's release next week. Check out the action-packed gameplay video below, then prepare for Death when Darksiders II releases on August 14th in North America and August 21st in Europe.

[Thanks, iBuzz7S]

Really looking forward to this game. I've got the special edition on pre-order from Game which means I also get an extra side quest(not just the Tomb one).

Is there any news on what the secret achievements are yet?

This next 2 weeks are going to really drag. Can't wait for this.

Big thumbs up to the x360a guys as I was able to watch the trailer on my windows phone. Nice.

@3 - If you look at the comments on the achievement list, someone has already posted a link that shows what the secret ones are.

So glad I finally got my Xbox and internet back, this is one of my most anticipated games this year! Also, is this the first time we've heard death speak? I can't remember him talking before this, but I like the voice work.

@8, I saw on a retail website that the dlc will be available on the marketplace 30 days after the game's release.

@5 This is, I think, the first time more than a line or two from Death is featured in a trailer. The "Death Comes For All" trailer had a line in reaction to Sammael, and one of the first trailers had "I have an offer in mind" but I believe Vigil confirmed that first trailer didn't feature the correct VA.

Michael Wincott's voice is great for Death, and I'm glad he's getting some more VA work.

@1 Yeah its cool they need to keep this video format whatever it is. If my WP can play videos from this site then my future MS Surface Tablet will as well.

On Topic I can't wait.

I've had a recent change of heart about this game. I'm now very interested. I don't know, the addition of all this RPG stuff just sort of put me off despite loving the first one. Now I have to decide if I want to get it.. Getting Sleeping Dogs for sure, that's not going to change. Do I want to go double? I don't know...
