After spending a few hours with War in the original Darksiders, developer Vigil Games is pairing us up with Death in the upcoming sequel. Coming this summer, Darksiders 2 follows the second 'Horseman of the Apocalypse' as he attempts to make sense of the events from the original title in the series.
