THQ has announced Danish composer Jesper Kyd whose previous efforts include Assassin’s Creed and the Hitman series, will provide the original score for Darksiders II.

“It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Jesper,” said Jeremy Robins, audio director at Vigil Games. “He’s an extremely talented composer and an avid gamer, who not only created an amazing soundtrack for Darksiders II, but intuitively knew how to cater each composition to achieve maximum musical impact for players.”

As well as the game soundtrack by Jesper Kyd, the campaign score has been composed by Giles Lamb, who also composed the score for the Dead Island trailer.

Clips of Lambs’ score can be found through the YouTube videos below – both of which you have already seen. Still, just listen to them.

Also, IGN has posted a preview of the game, also with what we are assuming are new screenshots.

Darksiders II is out in June.
