I could have sworn all 4 of the horsemen were blood related. I think.

To those who aren't aware: DSII takes place between the events of armageddon and War's awakening.

are you sure its between or is it parallel?

DragonKnight2106d ago

It's actually parallel, not before War awakes.

How can it be parallel? At the end of the first game you see the other 3 horsemen falling from the sky. So, how could death be falling from the sky if he's already on Earth?

From the official site.

"Follow the exploits of Death, horseman of the Apocalypse, in a tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game. This epic journey propels Death through the light and dark realms as he strives to redeem his brother War, blamed for inciting Armageddon and the eradication of Mankind..."

It doesn't make a lick of sense, but that's your proof right there. It's very possible that Death heard the call after War smashed the 7th seal and simply joined the other 2 horsemen. Or he could have been resealed before War broke the seal. But it's been known since it was announced that Death's story is parallel to War's.
