Vigil Games and THQ have announced that you’ll be able to unlock two ‘awesome’ in-game items within Darksiders II if you have completed or played Darksiders.
Players who played the first Darksiders will unlock the Pauldron of the Horsemen in Darksiders II. This level 5 legendary armor piece boosts all Death’s stats as well as his critical damage. Gamers who have finished the game on any difficulty will also earn a level 1 legendary scythe called the Chaos Fang which will boost Death’s damage and critical damage.
The in-game item unlocks are based on Achievements you have unlocked. So if you haven’t completed Darksiders you might want to make it happen asap.
Don’t forget, you can read our preview of Darksiders II, which went live recently, here. Also read our interview with Lead Designer, Haydn Dalton, here.
Finally, you can read everything we have on the game in our Darksiders II hub here.
Oh and most importantly, you can pre-order here (do it cause we want a Darksiders III).
