Darksiders 2 Crucible mode adds 100 waves of survival combat

Tuesday, 7th August 2012 02:45 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Darksiders 2 has several life-extending options once you’ve trundled through the enormous main quest, including a New Game+ mode and the arena-style combat of the Crucible.

The Crucible is unlocked progressively as the player completes the main quest; visiting the Tome stone – a messaging system used to trade and gift equipment or receive exclusive content – occasionaly yields a tarot card, which unlocks another set of challenges. The arena survival challenge offers 100 stages in total, with players able to opt out with a prize after every five.

It’s quite hard and should keep you going for a while, but once that’s done and dusted, you could always try the New Game+ mode, which sends you out to repeat your adventure with all progress, customisations and equipment intact.

IGN has cobbled together some gameplay footage of the Crucible; check it out below some new screens. Darksiders 2 arrives on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next week, with a Wii U version expected at a later date.

    This game looks great, and so far everything has looked good until … I saw him pull out a gun in this trailer and start shooting… wtf a gun? lame!

    It’s nothing like horde mode at all, not even a little bit. It’s arena mode from god of war, and/or bloody palace mode I believe from devil may cry.
