THQ and Vigil have released a new trailer for upcoming Darksiders II. Subtitled “Death Comes to All”, this latest glimpse of the bony horseman’s adventure is made up entirely of in-game footage; no fancy pre-rendered stuff here!

We’ve already gone hands-on with Darksiders II and can say without a shadow of doubt that if you loved the first game, then you’ll love this one as well. The added bonus, however, is the game’s shift in genre from a standard Metroid-Vania action title, to Metroid-Vania action RPG. Loot drops, character stats, custom load-outs – it’s all there.

In addition to the new trailer, Vigil has provided the PC crowd with the system requirements for Darksiders II. The game hits South African stores on 21 August for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. New trailer and PC requirements after the jump.
