On Wednesday afternoon, Vigil Games and THQ announced that they will be offering a reward to their loyal fans that have supported them since the beginning of “Darksiders” by offering two in-game unlocks within “Darksiders II”.
Those who have played “Darksiders” will unlock the Pauldron of the Hoursemen in “Darksiders II”. This is a level 5 legendary armor piece that boosts all of Death’s stats as well as his critical damage. Gamers who completed “Darksiders” on any difficulty will also earn a level 1 legendary scythe called the Chaos Fang which will boost Death’s damage and critical damage.
The in-game item unlocks are based on Achievements/Trophies you have earned. If you haven’t completed “Darksiders” yet, now is the time to do so. “Darksiders II” will see release on August 14 for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. A Wii U release is scheduled for later this year.
In 2010, Vigil Games took the industry by surprise when “Darksiders” saw release on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Carefully blending combat elements from acclaimed franchises like “God of War” and “Devil May Cry”, while making use of the intricate dungeon and puzzle designs akin to that of “The Legend of Zelda”, “Darksiders” gained a strong following of fans and surged to achieve critical applause and solid sales of over 1 million copies.
