http://www.videogamer.com/xbox360/darksiders_2/news/darksiders_2_cost_thq_50m_to_develop_says_nordic_games_boss.html A recent MCV interview with Nordic Games revealed that THQ spent $50 million developing Darksiders 2 (eep!), which is pretty much the lower-end of the most expensive games developed list. The owner of Nordic Games also mentioned they can make a product of similar quality but for less (I certainly hope so), so I guess we'll see what happens with Darksiders 3. Still, $50 million though... that's pretty crazy, especially for a company that was in such dire straits as THQ (which kinda shows why they went out of business). A quick look at Wikipedia shows that at $50 million, Darksiders 2 is in the company of such games as L.A. Noire Homefront (another THQ title, not surprisingly) DC Universe Online Halo Reach Heavy Rain World of Warcraft ...and about 20 others that exceeded that amount. Pretty crazy! For games developed with next-gen technology today, I imagine $50 million is almost the norm for a lot of the higher-end triple-A titles. Destiny no doubt went much higher than that. But are you surprised DS2 cost that much? Did it seem like the quality matched up?
John Kidman posted a article in Industry NewsVigil Games, the studio behind Darksiders 2, is not prepared for their fans to shelve Death. Death is already up to his knees in a new crisis after delving into Argul's Tomb just one month ago. The official Darksiders 2 blog announced that the game's second piece of downloadable content will be available next week! The Abyssal Forge pits Death against a maker known as 'The Mad Smith'. The Mad Smith, creator of the Abyssal Forge, began assembling a vast army after being banished to the Shadow Lands with his living machine. Death will trek through the swampy terrain and overcome two new dungeons, encountering unique enemies and puzzles, in order to quell this newly unveiled threat. Vigil Games assures that this piece of downloadable content represents some of the more difficult Darksiders 2 puzzles and enemies to date. The Abyssal Forge will be available in North America on October 30. Darksiders 2 fans will need to shell out $9.99 for this content on PC and Playstation 3 or 800 Microsoft Points on the Xbox 360.
THQ has released a new 35 second television spot for Darksiders 2, appropriate as many televisions are likely to be wearing the game on their screens in a little over a week. The TV spot, in all its brevity, shows off the world's favorite event, the Apocalypse ending all human kind, and all the shenanigans associated with such. We see the horrifying face of a child sprung forth from the Uncanny Valley, and she looks pretty terrified of seeing the pale rider himself on the approach. A monster dives at the child and her caretaker, but Death overtakes it and the scene transitions into a Hell-like place where Death beats some dudes up.Dramatic music, theatrical narration, and a giant monster for the hero to go fight all play across the screen, and... Well, see for yourself. http://youtu.be/M_VgiVQLkrg Darksiders II comes to us as a sequel to Darksiders, which followed War, another of the notorious Horsemen. It's been well over two years since its release, however, and so August 14th, 2012, THQ is going to make it right. PC, Xbox 360, and the PlayStation 3 will all get the Darksiders II treatment in just over a week, so gird your loins for more End Days mayhem.
