Darksiders II is the sequel to the game that followed the story of War, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. In Darksiders II the story centres on Death, another horseman, who comes to Earth to find out why the time of Man was prematurely ended with the Apocalypse (we got slaughtered at the incorrect time it seems). At least some one is crying for us lowly mortals.
The Behind the Mask: The Story video is the second video released for the second game and provides a bit more detail than the first video which was just a monologue by Death himself. A word of caution to those who have yet to finish the first game, the video makes mention of the ending of that game so SPOILER ALERT. Darksiders II is due for release in August after it was delayed from its expected June release.
