We may not be seeing Darksiders II for quite a while, but we'll get to hear more about the game before the vague estimated release window, which lands some time between 2012 and 2013. Yeah, vague.
Magazine publication Game Informer will be focusing on the game in their July issue, and the cover just says it all. Looks like War will be replaced by fellow horseman Death, who appears on the July cover in full Joe Madureira glory. Delicious.
Darksiders II sends Death through the Abyss while War is busy doing his own thing, and developers at Vigil are looking to craft a deeper experience this time around with more NPCs, dungeons, and an advanced loot system.
