Death strikes a pose in Darksiders II trailer

THQ has resurrected a new teaser trailer for Darksiders II. It may not offer as many whiz-bang gameplay scenes as the announcement trailer that preceded it, but where it lacks in detail, it more than makes up for in moody music, gravelly voiceovers, and crafty slogans. Meet the horseman who will finish what War started next summer in the latest Darksiders II video:

Set during the events of the original, Darksiders II will follow Death as he traverses brand new locations in search of evidence that will acquit his brother War for the crime of ending the world. The second horseman in the apocalypse family will play as a faster and more fluid character than War, and will have access to a deeper skill and ability customization system.

Earlier this year, developer Vigil Games confirmed Darksiders II will once again be a strictly single-player adventure. Not that Vigil wouldn't love to add multiplayer, just that the studio hasn't been able to find the time and resources to implement it properly. In an interview with IGN, director Marvin Donald said he hopes the next sequel will at least include co-op, but added, “It just depends on the resources that are available, the size of the budget and whether or not Darksiders II does well. There are a lot of factors that are going to drive that. It's too soon to say."

Darksiders II has been confirmed for release next summer for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. It will also looks like it will appear as a launch title for Wii U.
