Following up on their Darksiders II announcement from yesterday, THQ released the first trailer. It includes in-game footage of Death, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse the game's protagonist.

At the beginning of the first Darksiders, War was accused of starting the Apocalypse early. Death sets out to save his fellow Horsemen from punishment. He'll travel through the realms of both angels and demons in his quest.

Death, like War, excels in melee combat. His main weapon appears to be a mean-looking scythe. There's also some footage of him leveling enemies with a giant mallet.

Darksiders II will be released in 2012 on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
