THQ and Random House are teaming up to produce a brand new novel based on Darksiders II. DARKSIDERS: THE ABOMINATION VAULT, written by author Ari Marmell, will take place millennia before the events of the first game of the Darksiders series. Random House Worlds, the Random House Publishing Group’s intellectual property creation and development group, will also develop the IP bible for the Darksiders universe.
In DARKSIDERS: THE ABOMINATION VAULT, the Horsemen of the Apocalypse (beings charged with maintaining the Balance between the forces of Heaven and Hell) have uncovered a plot to resurrect ancient weapons of unimaginable power. Death, with the help of his compatriot War, must track down and neutralize the mysterious individuals behind the scheme before the entire universe is plunged into a devastating conflict.
Darksiders II is set to release on the 21st of August.
