Darksiders 2 will contain five hours of additional content when it releases on Wii U during the console’s launch window, THQ has announced.

The bonus-content not included in other formats on disc will consist of the first DLC expansion, Argul’s Tomb, as well as all pre-order bonuses from other editions, which is where the five hours of additional content originates. It will also contain legendary weapons and armor.

Darksiders 2 takes advantage of the system’s GamePad, utilizing the touch screen to display map and objectives as well as giving quick access to abilities and Death’s inventory.

The Wii U system’s gyro functionality will also be utilized to allow players to evade enemy attacks, manipulate objects in the world and steer their character during swimming and riding sequences.

Have a look at the box art below, and a trailer for the game can be found in the main Wii U launch titles post for the US.

    Gotta like that. I haven’t picked up DS2 yet, was waiting to see what this version offered. Unless Steam blow it out(and they might), I am going to grab it for WiiU.

    @OG,the only thing that can make DS2 better, is more DS2… So I think you’re on the right track! :)

    It seems quite ironic that a game whose biggest criticism by reviewers is that it out stay is welcome by far is getting another 5 hours added to it for WiiU. I mean its a great game, but yeah, about 80% of it is dumb pandering and padding tied around a nonsensical plot you stop caring about within the first 3 hours. This really isnt a game that needed to be even longer.

    Its not exclusive content, as written , they bundled first dlc and pre order bonuses to the game, which makes the 5 hours. Existing players won’t miss anything.
