Vigil has gone into more depth on Darksiders II’s Crucible Mode, the arena survival challenge with 100 stages in total.
Players are able to opt out with a prize after every five waves and take the reward and run, or try another five waves for an even greater reward – or nothing at all should they perish.
Listen to lead combat designer, Ben Cureton, as he walks you through the video below. If you live in the West Hollywood area of California, stop by GameStop on August 13 at 9:00pm PDT and you’ll get to meet Cureton in person, and while you’re there, you can sign up for some giveaways such as posters, game covers signed Joe Madureira, a Darksiders II DLC Season Pass and copies of the Darksiders novel The Abomination Vault (thanks, D’toid).
Darksiders 2 lands on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 next week. The Wii U version will follow sometime after the console’s launch.
