A Darksiders tweet
points to the official announcement
of the recently teased
DLC for Darksiders II
, revealing this will be called Abyssal Forge
, and saying it will be released on Tuesday for all except European PS3 owners, who will get it the next day. Here's the skinny:
The Abyssal Forge is a living machine designed to harness the unfocussed dark power of the Abyss and create the most powerful legendary weapons. The Maker who built this abomination, known only as the Mad Smith, was shunned by his own people and sealed away in the Shadow Lands with his creation. However, the forge hasnít remained dormant all those years of captivity; it has constructed a vast army and now threatens all creation.
The vast swamp-like Shadow Lands, added by this DLC is a new gameplay zone with an entirely new visual look, including two challenging new dungeons, new enemies to best, secrets to uncover and unique legendary loot to collect. Tailored towards the most competent Darksiders II players, the Abyssal Forge will test your mettle against the hardest enemies and puzzles yet.
The Abyssal Forge is available to download on Xbox 360 and PC worldwide as well as PS3 in North America on Tuesday 30th October. The European PS3 version will go live the next day on Wednesday 31st October. This DLC will be priced at 800 MS Points / $9.99.
