Darksiders II Adds DLC and Off Sceen Play In Wii U Version

If you’ve been holding off on playing Darksiders II, then you might want to wait a little longer. Announced in a recent press release, the Wii U version of Darksiders II looks to be the most complete experience of the game. The Wii U version supports off screen play, allowing players to play on the Wii U Gamepad if a TV is not available. The game will also come with DLC content (previously only available if you pre-ordered the title) that looks to add dungeons, armor, weapons, and side quests.  The game also features support for the Wii U pro controller. Here’s the full press release:

Awakened by the End of Days, Death, the most feared of the legendary Four Horsemen, embarks on a quest to undo Armageddon.

Along the way, Death discovers that there are far worse things than an earthly Apocalypse, and that an ancient grudge may threaten all of Creation.

Become the terrifying force which everything fears but nothing can escape. Death Lives, in Darksiders II.
