Games aren’t cheap these days. When you’re slamming $60 down on the counter of your local retailer (or furiously typing your credentials into Amazon, whatever), you want something that will give you serious bang for your buck. Luckily for you, it seems Darksiders II will have you covered there.
“Clocktime for an average playthrough is really hard to put a finger on right now since we’re going through finalisation. But I’d say easily the critical path is gonna be 25 plus hours,” Vigil creative manager Jeremy Greiner said. “Just looking as usability right now, that’s easy. But we have a ton of side content. Darksiders II is a much bigger game than Darksiders 1 in a couple of ways. The scale is bigger. It’s much more grounded, it’s much more epic, we put a lot in the engine to accomplish that from a visual standpoint. At the same time, it’s a much bigger game content wise. And we’re all working to polish all that up to a AAA quality as we speak.”
In other words, unbuckle your belt and get ready for the all-you-can-eat buffet that will be Darksiders II. It comes out on August 14 in US and the 17th in UK, for the PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and eventually the Wii U.
