'Darksiders II' Reminds Us That We're All Pretty Much Doomed

In this trailer, titled "Death Comes for Us All," THQ and Vigil give us a look at some of the gameplay and story elements of the upcoming sequel. And as far as trailers setting out to get me hyped for a game go, this one is top-notch, providing some of the grand scope of Death's journey in Darksiders II.

In the sequel, you'll play as Death, one of the other Horsemen of the Apocalypse in a story that runs parallel to that of the first game. Death's quest is to clear his brother War's name for starting Armageddon and plunging the world into a mess of demons and ticked-off angels.

Darksiders II will be available August 14th for the PS3, PC, and Xbox 360.
