THQ Inc. today announced the sequel to its award-winning action-adventure title, Darksiders, is scheduled to come to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in 2012.

Darksiders II follows the exploits of DEATH, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in a weaving tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game. This epic journey propels DEATH through various light and dark realms as he tries to redeem his brother WAR, the horseman who was blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse in Darksiders.

Featuring a dramatically larger world, full weapon and armor upgrade systems as well as bigger and more challenging dungeons and vast array of new enemies and bosses, Darksiders II strives to improve on every aspect of the original hit.

Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President of Core Games, commented: “We have taken the best parts of ‘Darksiders’ and improved on them with a host of new mechanics and features. You will see great things from this epic game.”
