Yeah, I post a lot of Darksiders II trailers. What can I say, I’m excited for this game. Soon I’ll move on to something else and post a ton of trailers for it. This latest, the last “pre-release” trailer, no doubt to be followed by a launch day trailer, has Death explaining why he does what he does. Seems unnecessary, if you ask me. He’s Death. He kills things.
What isn’t mentioned in the trailer, but did get announced recently, is the fact that Darksiders II will have a New Game + mode as well as a wave based, kill ‘em all mode called The Crucible. New Game + was hinted at by the devs when I spoke to them at E3 but Vigil was still undecided. I’m glad to see they went with it as multiple runs through this game will be necessary, not only to get good gear but also to get Death powered up to his fullest.
The Crucible mode features 100 waves of enemies, broken up in five wave chunks. If you finish the next five waves and want to claim your reward, do so and go about your merry, demon slaying ways. If you want to press your luck, you can give up your new toy and keep on playing but if you die, you lose everything. No whammies, indeed.
