Darksiders 2 Trailer Behind the Mask Details
Death Rises – Darksiders II Behind the Mask is a video montage, featuring an interview with the game’s developers, who offer additional information regarding the title they work on.
Joe Madureira, creative director of Darksiders and Darksiders 2 reveals in the Darksiders 2 trailer, that, in the game, players will have the chance to experience a different gameplay than the one from Darksiders, because of Death’s new combat style, moves and personality. According to Madureira, Death “is probably the most well known of the four horsemen”. The other three are War (from Darksiders), Strife and Fury.
Marvin Donald (game director), explains the difference between War and Death. According to him, Death is “much more feral and animal-like”. Unlike War, in Darksiders 2, Death is more “calculated and elegant”, adds Han Randhawa (art director).
The trailer also discloses some weapons Death uses in Darksiders 2. David Adams (general manager and co-owner of Vigil Games) points out that even if Death’s main weapon is a scythe, he is capable to wield almost any weapons available, and that the multi-purpose scythe can be separated in two different dual-wielded blades. Additionally, Death can shoot guns, can use claws, iron fists or hammers.
The team from Vigil Games added more content to Darksiders 2, as well as more characters, weapons and armors that can be used by Death. A series of Darksiders 2 collectibles are also available in the game.
At the end of the interview, Death from Darksiders II is described by developers as a “cold, calculated, agile” character and a “badass arrogant” horseman, who knows how to finish things and wrap them up.
