It's a double dose of Darksiders II news, both bad and good. As is tradition, we'll give you the bad news first. Vigil Games' comic book legend, whose art style has informed the look of both Darksiders games has departed the studio. Creative Director Joe Madureira has left Vigil to return to comics, which while upsetting for gamers, is fantastic news for comic book fans. His run on the X-Men comics are some of the most memorable (the Onslaught saga for instance).

"So long @Vigilgames @THQ," Madureira tweeted. "Thanks for all the memories! @Darksiders was definitely a career highlight. Keep on kicking ass I'm a fan for life!"

Madureira goes on: "I could not be more proud of what we achieved, or the awesome people who helped build up this studio. I can safely say Vigil's future is in very good hands, so expect only awesomeness down the road. This feels surreal... I miss the place already."

Now the good news. THQ has teased new Darksiders II DLC with a single, not particularly revelatory image via its Darksiders Twitter page. "A new adventure awaits Death! Retweet if you're excited," reads the tweet. Check out the image below. It shows Death walking towards a menacing looking temple. Ooh!
