When they said teaser, they definitely meant teaser. Tonight's Darksiders 2 teaser was short but oh so very sweet. With very few words spoken, the message definitely hit home to those anxiously awaiting the arrival of Death.
The tagline, "What starts with War. Ends with Death," is perfect for those who have been following the Darksiders franchise since the beginning. In reference to the past, this tagline is a choice pick for Darksiders 2. It's been awhile since the previous trailer and screenshots were released and this teaser should get the taste back in fans' mouths.
Check out the teaser below and see if your wait for a sequel to Darksiders has been justified:
About Darksiders 2:
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? 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.
