The new content comes with two new frozen dungeons, boss battles and plenty of loot, for those of you out there who didn't get enough of all three of those components in the main game as is. If you pre-ordered the game, you'll likely already have a code for the content, but if you didn't, you'll still be able to pick it up for just under AUD$10.
We scored the game a whopping 9.5/10 citing its setting, combat and RPG elements as standout features.

Namely, a New Game Plus option, which will allow you to play through the campaign again, only retaining your upgrades, gear and level and an Arena mode called "Crucible" are on offer, with Crucible rewarding persistent players who can make it through to wave 100 "the greatest prizes" in the game (read: Legendary Loot).
We'll have a lot more on Darksiders II for you soon, so stay tuned.

Loot might seem like an odd fit for the very Zelda-inspired Darksiders, but the video describes how the Vigil team are implementing it in a way that seems like it just might work. The clip also goes into depth on the various ways that players can customise the abilities and appearance of Death throughout the game.
Watch the trailer below or click here for the HD option.

Aside from great production values, a decent amount of CG and one heck of a lot of monsters, today's video also features Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, Jeor Mormont (played by James Cosmo) who reads a passage more would likely be familiar with from this song than its source material. But I digress.

official Darksiders forums to reiterate his and THQ's commitment to the much-loved franchise.
"The quote implied that I am not enthusiastically behind the Darksiders universe," he wrote on the forums. "And that THQ has made decisions not to continue the Darksiders franchise. This is simply untrue.
"My quote was intended in the context of having different teams within this incredibly talented studio work on new original IP," he added. "As well as continuing to support the Darksiders franchise.
"I enjoyed the original game when it came out, and one of my first tweets as President of THQ was "Best part of my new job at THQ? When the Darksiders II playable suddenly drops on my desk... @thq"," the new boss concluded. "Since that tweet I have been playing a lot of Darksiders II and it is far better than the first. I'm incredibly excited about Vigil and the Darksiders franchise. Keep your eyes peeled on Monday for an awesome new trailer that brings the world to life in a way you haven’t seen before!"
So good news then. Now, if only he could re-clarify his comments about Saints Row: The Third we could all go about breathing a sigh of relief that no one is going to take our purple dildos away from us as weapons.
