One week, my friends. One. Short. Week. That’s all you need to wait to finally get your hands on the much anticipated Darksiders II. THQ and Vigil Games have been working hard to keep your attention and ramp up your excitement. Between the announcement yesterday regarding New Game+ and the Arena mode and today’s final gameplay trailer in advance of the title’s August 14, 2012 release, it’s an avalanche of anticipation.

If you’ve been wondering why Death will be embarking on this little enormous adventure, take a look and hear from the masked Horseman yourself. Death comes to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC next week.
