As promised by THQ, developer Vigil Games revealed today the arena mode in Darksiders II
christened The Crucible. This mode will put Death up against wave after wave of battle hardened enemies in which every fifth wave you can take a prize or continue to fight your way up to the one-hundredth wave summit. Take a look at the screenshots and then watch the video below for more details.
Apparently, THQ boasts that
Only the most skilled players will have what it takes to conquer all 100 waves and claim the greatest prizes.
I don't know about you but that sounds like they are challenging our skills. I know many of you hope to prove them wrong.
Also, announced is the New Game+mode, in which the players will be able to retain all the skills and equipment for subsequent playthroughs. This proves that Death can be a giver and a taker. Darksiders II
is due out next week on August 14th in North America and August 17th everywhere else.
