Darksiders 2 will include an arena mode and a new game plus mode.

Darksiders 2 will include a wave-based arena and a new game plus mode, publisher THQ announced today.

According to a press release, the Arena Challenge Mode includes 100 waves of combat, in which players can earn prizes for completing every fifth wave or soldier on for another five waves to earn better rewards. Darksiders 2's New Game+ mode allows players retain their customized Death in a new game while retaining skills and equipment from the previous playthrough.

Speaking of skills and equipment, developer Vigil Games said in a recent video that Death is built to be customized, and that the full potential of many customizations will only be available in subsequent playthroughs.

Darksiders 2 is scheduled for release on August 14th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. You can check out a gallery of Death looking menacing as he faces off against his opponents in the arena below.
