Titled the 'Abyssal Forge', the DLC follows Death as he travels to the Shadow Lands to find a new legendary weapon created by the Mad Smith in the abyssal forge.
The expansion adds the new Shadow Lands area - a swampy map with two large dungeons to explore - along with new enemies to fight and equipment to find.
The 'Abyssal Forge' DLC will be available on Xbox Live, PSN and PC from October 30, and will arrive on the European PSN store the following day on October 31. It will be priced at 800 MS Points on Xbox Live, or $9.99 / £6.80 on PSN and PC.
Darksiders 2 launched in August on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, and will receive a Wii U port as a day one launch title when the system launches on November 18 in North America and November 30 in Europe.
The Wii U version will feature unique controls using the Wii U GamePad, and includes all previous DLC from the other versions. No announcement has been made regarding the 'Abyssal Forge' DLC's availability on Wii U.
