New Darksiders II Developer Diary Gets Down and Dirty With Death

on January 19, 2012 3:00 PM

The four horsemen of the apocalypse have always been one of my favorite stories, and I love seeing the different takes on the characters across the various forms of social media.

Unlike the representation of Death in one of my favorite shows, Supernatural, where he’s a tired old man in a business suit who adores Chicago pizza and has the coolest theme song around, the character of Death as interpreted in Darksiders II is a lot darker and scarier.  In the developer diary, which you can see after the cut, the devs describe death as an opportunist, cold, calculating, and arrogant. And don’t forget badass.

Darksiders II is currently expected to drop sometime June 2012.
