THQ today announced that Darksiders II will feature a survival arena mode allowing players to continue advancing their character after finishing the main game.
After completing five of the mode’s 100 unique waves, gamers will be given the option of taking a prize or continuing for another five waves for a chance at even better items. However, if they fall in combat they will leave with nothing.
In addition to this mode, Darksiders II will feature a New Game+ mode which will allow players to carry over their Death for a new game retaining all of their skills and equipment.
Jim Huntley, Vice President of Global Brand Marketing commented: “The Arena Challenge Mode and the New Game+ function are the perfect way to continue building the ultimate Death even after finishing the main game. This upgraded and customized character can then be carried over into the upcoming DLC campaign missions.”
Darksiders II follows the exploits of Death, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in a tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game.
Darksiders II is scheduled to be available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and PC in August 2012, and a WiiU version is scheduled for release at console launch.
