so in this article it reveals that Darksiders 2 will be released August 26th. but it also says Darksiders 2 has 5 times more preorders then the first one.

According to the latest reports, Agoura Hills, California-based game developing and publishing company THQ has announced that they have set a date for the release of the upcoming and highly anticipated title, "Darksiders 2." THQ CEO Brian Farrell said that the game will be launching on August 26, 2012.

THQ previously announced that the company will be delaying the release of "South Park: The Game" until 2013 and "Devil's Third" could be sold off. Moreover, the company has lost hundreds of millions of dollars this year. So the announcement date of the new game comes as a relief for both the fans and the company itself.

Farrell has also mentioned that "Darksiders 2" has, so far, been pre-ordered five times more than the original Darksiders, according to a Gamesradar report.

That IS good news. I don't want THQ to go under.

The only possible good thing about THQ going under would be that the UFC license could go to EA. But that's probably not worth it considering how much I love what they've done with Darksiders and the Warhammer 40k license.

As much as I hate to see game companies go under, I think it is only a matter of time for THQ. I think Darksiders 2 will be a success, but I don't think it's going to be a 5 million sales kind of success that they really need. They can't just keep pumping out Darksiders and Saints Row games twice a year to get their heads above water.

Saints row was critically acclaimed; did it sell well? I thought thatd have given them a boost. I thoroughly enjoyed the game.

I like THQ, Darksiders and de Blob are two of my favorites this generation. I think Darksiders 2 could be a GOTY contender, it looks incredible.

But they'll try. Saint's Row 4 was just unofficially announced.

THQ will be delisted on the Nasdaq in July. They will not be able to release Darksiders 2 in August. Some other company will have to pay the bill.

Ooooohh, I don't have that. Cool. I really need to get a bigger house so I can get a proper mancave. I have CE tchotchkes everywhere, haha.

I loved the fiirst game and thought it was highly underrated. I still regret using store credit to pick up Dante's Inferno instead of that the day they came out... DI was horrid. This will most definitely be a day 1 purchase for me, can't wait.

Really? IT was critically and commercially a hit - how was it underrated?

To be honest I recently beat the game and wasn't too impressed. It was a neat story but I wasn't blown away or anything. I'll wait for a price drop on Darksiders 2.

Baxter says:
I just never really heard much about it and most everyone I talked to didn't care much for it. So, that was probably all on me for not keeping it in my radar.

A Game Informer article on Darksiders 2 made me really want it. They're making it more of an open world game with more RPG elements.

In reply to an earlier post on May 17, 2012 9:02:58 AM PDT
yea now you can level up (max level is 20 i think) and you can customize Death's armor and weapons. plus enemies drop Loot

In reply to an earlier post on May 17, 2012 9:07:48 AM PDT
