Over at the official Darksiders website, it was announced today that the second batch of downloadable content, titled the Abyssal Forge, would be released on October 30th for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. European PS3 owners will get the content one day later on October 31st. The content is available for 800 MS Points or $9.99. You can see part of the press release from THQ just below.
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 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.
