Darksiders II: Abyssal Forge DLC confirmed for October release

Second major DLC expansion brings new dungeons, challenges skilled players

Darksiders 2's second DLC expansion is titled 'Abyssal Forge' and will be out on October 30, it was confirmed today.


The expansion adds a "vast swamp-like Shadow Lands", in which you'll explore "two challenging new dungeons, new enemies, secrets to uncover and unique legendary loot to collect".

Developer Sledgehammer Games says the update is aimed at skilled players and will really put your abilities to the test.

There's a plot behind it too, as Sledgehammer details, "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 hasn't remained dormant all those years of captivity; it has constructed a vast army and now threatens all creation."

The Abyssal Forge will be released for download on 360 and PC worldwide and on PS3 in US on Tuesday, October 30. The EU PS3 version will go live the next day on Wednesday, October 31. It'll cost you 800 MS Points or $9.99.
