This new trailer for Darksiders 2 shows off the loot and leveling systems that are new to the series, and it has us very interested. The one problem with modern action adventure games like God of War is that there isn't much customization involved. From the looks of it, the systems in Darksiders 2 will go a long way toward alleviating that.
This video gave us grand visions of a wonderful future in which we get a Darksiders-esque action adventure melee combat game with a Borderlands-style system of random weapon drops. Nothing on this Earth would be more amazing than that.
Darksiders 2 is due out on August 14 in North America on Xbox 360, PS3, PC and OnLive as well as Wii U some time afterward.
