He's a big lad, isn't he?

Death will reign once again this Hallowe’en, when THQ deploys Darksiders 2’s second big chunk of DLC. The cryptically titled Abyssal Forge will be available on PlayStation 3 from 30th October in North America. Those of you living overseas will have an extra day to prepare for the apocalyptic arrival, when the content appears on 31st October in Europe. At $9.99, it’ll cost a shade more than the game's previous add-on, Argul’s Tomb – but, hey, the publisher needs the cash.

Thankfully, it seems like you’ll be getting your money’s worth. The expansion pack will include a new area named the Shadow Lands. It will also feature two new dungeons, along with new enemies and, of course, plenty of loot. Vigil claims that the content will sport “the hardest enemies and puzzles yet”. That sounds like a turnoff to us.
