War may never change, but the protagonist in Darksiders II
certainly has. As one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, War always got the glamour, Famine had that slim look that got all the babes, and Pestilence was the quiet, smart one. Death, on the other hand, always ended up with the shaft. THQ and Vigil Games are changing all of that as they've revealed that Death will be the protagonist in Darksiders II
Revealed exclusively to Game Informer
, Darksiders II
will be July's cover story.
GI's Ben Reeves briefly describes the game with the following:
The horseman War has been sidelined, so it’s up to his brother, Death, to travel through the world of the Abyss and attempt to restore humanity after its destruction during the Apocalypse.
GI is also showing off some of the cover art for July's issue.
