Sort of surprised I did not see any posts aobut this.  
 
It seems the new "hero" for dakrsiders 2 has been shown along with Fury and Death.

 Our new hero? 
I admit he does sort of look cool. But where does he fit in? The game is supposed to take place along side the events of the first.

Reviled means hated.

I pretty sure this concept art has been available since the game shipped on the artist's website.

Ok.  I didn't think you were the type to not know the diff between reviled and revealed, but I couldn't tell which context from your post.  Also, I agree but at the same time I've learned not to judge on character art.

I  hope they make him more well...sort of menesing. The horse men are supposed to be the bringers of Armageddon...They should impose fear and look intimidating.  
 
 
And what do you mean " You where the type to not know?"

Nope, that's one of the horsemen that appeared in media/wallpapers/artwork for the first Darksiders.

@The_Laughing_Man: I think he said that because you spelt menacing as 'menesing'.

No...thats Stryfe....hes the main guy for the new game. Aka ninja dude...anyways. He might have been shown off earlier. But I still think its a sort of stupid choice.

Looks like a Turian.

This is all the old character art from back when they thought they were going to make a 4-player co-op game. I don't believe any of this was/will be used.

So when was it confirmed that you would play as Stryfe? 

Er, Strife. Don't know where you got that spelling from.

And I thought it was ridiculous when they changed the names of two of the horsemen because they apparently weren't badass enough.

I miss read the source. My mistake. But still it is stated that they other horse men will be along side war. And well..they do not look that good.

Yeah. Darksiders' characters looked shitty in general. Kind of sad that a game backed by an established comic book artist can't have good character designs. Or story, for that matter.

I'll wait till I see the actual in-game art.
 
I loved the art in the original Darksiders, and LOVED the gameplay, so I'm staying optimistic.
