THQ have confirmed details of a new novel based on the Darksiders characters will be released around the same time as Darksiders II. The novel, Darksiders: The Abomination Vault, written by author Ari Marmell, will take place millennia before the events of the first game of the Darksiders series.
The novel’s narrative revolves around the Horsemen of the Apocalypse (beings charged with maintaining the Balance between the forces of Heaven and Hell) who have uncovered a plot to resurrect ancient weapons of unimaginable power. Death, with the help of his compatriot War, must track down and neutralize the mysterious individuals behind the scheme before the entire universe is plunged into a devastating conflict.
We only have a rough May 2012 release date for the novel, but we’ll bring you more details as and when we get them.
