Darksiders’ WAR Gets a Spiffy Costume Change


Hey, look at this! THQ just sent me a new round of Darksiders: Wrath of War screenshots and immediately I noticed that WAR, the game’s main character, has had a major costume design change since the last time we saw him. Just look at the comparison shot I whipped up above, the before-and-after differences are rather substantial. So what do you think of the change? Me? I love the new character design. The old WAR just looked like a hunk of bland metal, but the new WAR at least has some color to catch the eye. Plus his face is more visible and he’s now got some ominous glowy eyes, that’s always a cool touch.

Catch more of WAR’s new look in the gallery after the break.
