It was right around a month ago that THQ announced Darksiders II would be pushed back to August, but did not give a solid release date. Fast forward to today and we have news that Darksiders II will arrive on August 14th. This means we have just a few short months to go to experience gameplay as Death - the most feared member of the Four Horsemen. Events in Darksiders II happen at the same time as those in the first game, so it looks like War was not alone in his descent to Earth. THQ assures us the extra development time is being well spent, as Vigil Games can further refine the gameplay elements in Darksiders II. A delay from the start of summer to the end of summer is not all that bad, however it could interfere with those heading back to school.
