The lights are on
THQ hinted at the sequel to Vigil Game’s breakout hit almost immediately after the success of the first title, but we knew little about Darksiders II until now.
Fans of the first Darksiders are already familiar with Vigil’s fiction – the eternal war that rages between the forces of Heaven and Hell. With Darksiders II, Vigil looks to deliver a richer experience as players explore more dungeons, talk with a variety of NPCs, and experiment with a detailed loot system. The horseman War has been sidelined, so it’s up to his brother, Death, to travel through the world of the Abyss and attempt to restore humanity after its destruction during the Apocalypse.
Subscribers should be receiving their issues after the first day of E3. After you finish reading our cover story, keep checking back with our Darksiders II hub throughout the month, since we'll have plenty of updates that delve deeper into the experience Vigil is crafting for Darksiders II.
In addition to our 10-page cover story on Darksiders II, the July issue of Game Informer includes an in-depth first look at Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIII-2, our hands-on impressions of Sony’s NGP hardware and its early games, and an extensive preview section featuring games like BioShock Infinite, Mass Effect 3, and Batman: Arkham City.
Until you get a copy for yourself, drool over these images of our cover, drawn by comic book luminary Joe Madureira, or watch the exclusive first trailer for Darksiders II.

Mmm, makes me wish I actually got my subscription (long story..) maybe I will go pick this one up at the news stand. The cover art is excellent, really sells the vibe, and I wanna check out the cover story, NGP and FF XIII-2 stories, wouldn't feel bad about reading up on Bioshock Infinite either.
excellent news! i loved the first one more than i would thought.
Sweet cover! I need to go back and play the first.
Awesome! been waiting for a sequel to this game.
Very unexpected but I like it. Darksiders to me was very underrated and to see a sequel actually makes me a little happy.
Sweet! Just bought the first one a few days ago because I knew this was going to be the cover. Great artwork and I can't wait to get this issue!
oh my god thats the best news i heard all week
Very nice. I really enjoyed the first game (very underrated) so I've been pretty excited to see how the sequel fairs.
Very impressive! :)
I'm really liking the Gameinformer logo on the magazine.
