THQ and Vigil Games have announced a new feature of the upcoming Darksiders II; a mechanism to reward players who have played the 2010 original. Based on achievements or trophies, players will be rewarded with a piece of armor for having played the game, and a weapon if they've completed it.
From the official Darksiders blog:
Players who played the first Darksiders will unlock the Pauldron of the Horsemen in Darksiders II. This level 5 legendary armor piece boosts all Death’s stats as well as his critical damage. Gamers who have finished the game on any difficulty will also earn a level 1 legendary scythe called the Chaos Fang which will boost Death’s damage and critical damage.
The bonus is supported on all three formats; Darksiders II is out on PS3, 360, and PC on August 17th.
Cheers to Draken4299 for the tip!
