The video features new gameplay footage as the game's anti-hero protagonist Death sets the stage for the sequel's story.
The story of Darksiders 2 will run parallel to that of the first Darksiders game. Players will take on the role of the horseman Death as he travels through the Abyss to redeem his brother War and undo the apocalypse.
Those who played the first Darksiders game will be able to unlock exclusive bonus weapons and armour in the sequel.
Darksiders 2 will be released on Tuesday, August 14 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. A Wii U version is also said to be in development, though it does not have a release date yet.
