THQ is expected to uncover Darksiders 2 at E3, but if hints from executive Danny Bilson are any indication, we may get a major magazine reveal as well.
In a tweet, Bilson promised Darksiders 2 news “very soon” and “in a big way”, before adding mysteriously:
“Well, a few big ways”.
One of these ways is almost certainly E3, but a clue as to a second also comes from Bilson’s twitter feed.
The vice president reposted a tweet from Game Informer’s Andy McNamara:
“Next week we get to show you the cover for our E3 issue, and I can’t wait cause I am pretty freaking psyched. The cover art is amazing,” he said.
A glance over THQ’s upcoming properties suggests Darksiders 2 as the most likely candidate – especially with a reference “amazing” art, perhaps from creator and comics legend Joe Madureira, of Battle Chasers and Uncanny X-men fame.
Darksiders 2 is expected to add a multiplayer component to the 2010 original’s formula.
