In this last installment of ‘Behind the Mask’- a video series exploring the world and mechanics of Darksiders II– the developers talk about the loot, combat, and magic skills systems in the games. Watch it here:

Darksiders II is a rather important release for THQ, with the game being the company’s second most pre-ordered game next to Saint Row: The Third. As the loss of the UFC license, multiple lawsuits regarding the uDraw, the departure of Danny Bilson, layoffs in their San Diego studio and the decision for a reverse stock split have all happened in a short period of time, a successful game would be some great news for THQ.

Darksiders II is scheduled for release on PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and WiiU this August.
