Developer Vigil Games' next Darksiders title retains the hack and slash formula from its predecessor, but it ventures into a new territory with its storyline. And even after just barely catching a glimpse of it, I already want to know more.
My demo on the E3 showfloor starts at the beginning of the game. Death, the new horseman protagonist players get to ride as, is on a mission to free his brother from unjust accusations of starting the apocalypse. But the first obstacle in Death's course to the Tree of Life has him meet face to face with the keeper of secrets, also known as the Crowfather.
