New Darksiders trailer is all growly and stuff

6:40 PM on 07.01.2009 // Nick Chester

Nothing screams “epic” like characters will gravely voices, and this latest trailer for Vigil Games’ Darksiders has them in spades.

Everyone sounds like they smoke six packs a day or is getting over some ghastly cold or just think growling makes you sound scarier. Well, they’re right. All the characters in Darksiders are downright terrifying, even the potentially sexy chick with grey hair, because she’s all talking about stenches which -- right off the bat -- is a total turn-off.

But it works for Darksiders, which looks like it’s going to deliver a bunch of wild, third-person action when it hits stores on January 1. Yeah, the game’s publisher THQ was clever enough to release Darksiders -- which takes place post-apocalypse -- on the first day of the New Year. High five to that marketing decision, guys. If anything is going to get me to push through a hangover to get to GameStop, it's definitely killing demons and zombies with a big-ass sword. While riding a horse.

Don’t forget that we’re giving away some fancy cloth Darksiders maps, suitable for framing and/or cleaning up spills. That contest ends tomorrow, so get on over there and try to win one.
