'Darksiders 2' video teaches you how to become Death, destroyer of bosses

Darksiders 2 received a new video today that teaches players combat tricks and techniques that will help the game's horseman protagonist, Death, to fight.

Darksiders 2 received a new gameplay video today from developer Vigil Games that teaches players combat tricks and techniques that will help the game's horseman protagonist, Death, to fight.

The video, narrated by Darksiders 2's lead combat designer Ben Cureton, advises players to know their weapons and enemies, and to exploit both. Cureton singles out a weapon called the "buckler," which can block incoming attacks, and a move called the "death grip," which rips smaller enemies from their feet and wrenches them toward Death.

If you're in the mood for more Death, be sure to check out Polygon's Darksiders 2 review, which had many good things to say about Vigil Studio's sophomore effort, which was released earlier this week on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

You can watch the video below to learn some basic techniques from the man who taught Death to fight.
