'Darksiders II' (ALL) Gets Prequel Novel

by Rainier on Jan. 31, 2012 @ 9:44 a.m. PST

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.

Awakened by the End of Days, Death, the most feared of the legendary Four Horsemen, embarks upon a quest to restore mankind, and redeem his brother’s name. Along the way, the Horseman discovers that there are far worse things than an earthly Apocalypse, and that an ancient grudge may threaten all of Creation . . . Can Death really become mankind’s savior?

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.

THQ and the Random House Publishing Group announced that an original novel set in the Darksiders universe will be published by Random House’s Del Rey imprint in May 2012.  Darksiders: The Abomination Vault, written by author Ari Marmell, will take place millennia before the events of the first game of the Darksidersseries.  Random House Worlds, the Random House Publishing Group’s intellectual property creation and development group, will also develop the IP bible for the Darksiders universe.

In Darksiders: The Abomination Vault, the Horsemen of the Apocalypse (beings charged with maintaining the Balance between the  forces of Heaven and Hell) have uncovered a plot to resurrect ancient weapons of unimaginable power.  Death, with the help of his compatriot War, must track down and neutralize the mysterious individuals behind the scheme before the entire universe is plunged into a devastating conflict.

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.

The Wii U version of Darksiders II will take advantage of Nintendo’s innovative new hardware with implemented functionality for the revolutionary controller.
