Well, it has finally been revealed, new horseman is the Pale Rider; Death. After so long running in stealth mode, the Vigil Games team can now breathe out, and feel ok uttering Death’s name outside of the office. It was also even harder to keep in the fact that we we’re also going to be the cover story of the biggest game’s magazine in the world; Game Informer, and the added sweetner? It is also the issue that’ll be handed out at E3.
Joe Mad again pulls off an amazing piece of art, incredibly stylized and, we even got the chance to change the GI font/typeface, which was a cool touch. As far as I’m aware, this has only been done a handful of times before. It was also sweet to hear Andrew Reiner (game informer executive editor) say on his twitter “After seeing the game, this was one of the quickest cover decisions Andy and I ever made”
So far, this is what has been released:
Game Informer first revealed their July (e3 cover) on Monday here: DARKSIDER II COVER REVEAL
