The Abyssal Forge is a living machine designed to harness the unfocussed dark power of the Abyss and create the most powerful legendary weapons.

However, the forge hasn’t remained dormant all those years of captivity; it has constructed a vast army and now threatens all creation.
The vast swamp-like Shadow Lands added by this DLC is a new gameplay zone with an entirely new visual look, including two challenging new dungeons, new enemies to best, secrets to uncover and unique legendary loot to collect. Tailored towards the most competent Darksiders II players, the Abyssal Forge will test your metal against the hardest enemies and puzzles yet.
The Abyssal Forge is available to download on Xbox 360 and PC worldwide as well as PS3 in North America on Tuesday Oct. 30. The European PS3 version will go live the next day on Wednesday Oct. 31. This DLC will be priced at 800 MS Points / $9.99.
Darksiders II follows the exploits of DEATH, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in an action-packed tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game. This epic journey propels DEATH through various light and dark realms as he tries to redeem his brother WAR, the horseman blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse in Darksiders.
