THQ’s released the first trailer for Darksiders 2, along with plenty of new screenshots. The trailer introduces the sequel’s new protagonist Death, as well as revealing why he’s here in the first place. It also contains some great looking gameplay footage and we’re really digging the title’s art style. Darksiders 2 is in development for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 and will be releasing sometime in 2012. You can view the screens and announcement trailer below.
