THQ’s successor to the relatively unknown but completely awesome Darksiders will be available by the 14th of August 2012, THQ reported today. For those who haven’t played Darksiders, it’s a quasi open-world action adventure inspired by big wigs from the genre like Zelda, God of War and so on.

Death is coming for you

Death is coming for you

The game was well received critically and commercially and so THQ decided to give players a sequel. This time however, players will step into the boots of Death, brother of War, protagonist from the first game. Like War, Death brings his own brand of pain to the table and you can read more about him and his abilities in our preview here.

According to Game Informer, THQ are really backing this game by doubling its marketing budget. For their sake, I really hope the game isn’t “Dead on Arrival” (see what I did there?).
