Plot
THQ has confirmed that Darksiders II’s story will take place in the same time period as the first game, only this time players will take control of the Horseman Death, instead of his brother War.

The game will reportedly take place across an entirely new ensemble of maps, confirmed to be double in cumulative size to that of its predecessor. The game will also feature the remaining two horsemen, Strife and Fury, in some capacity.

Darksiders II starts at nearly the same time as the start of the first Darksiders. After War is convicted and sent back to Earth by the Charred Council, they inform the other three Horseman of his fate.

The Horseman Death, knowing that his brother War is the most honorable and incorruptible of the four, and would never have started the Apocalypse early, flies into a rage.

Believing his brother is victim of a conspiracy, Death defies the Council’s orders and sets out on a personal mission to find proof of his brother’s innocence. Death travels to the Nether Realms, a place between Heaven and Hell, to call in favors from powerful beings that rule the realm.
