Our friends over at Gameumentary have recently revealed the trailer for their upcoming documentary exploring the past and present of the Darksiders saga.

The Gameumentary team visited the Gunfire Games and Airship Syndicate studios in Austin, Texas to speak to key members from the original development team at Vigil Games, including writer Joe Madureira, designer David Adams, and composer Jesper Kyd. The full documentary will delve into both the origins of the series, as well as its more recent resurgence leading up to the anticipated release of Darksiders III later this year.

With the full documentary set for release on March 27, Gameumentary’s owner and lead interviewer Nick Calandra currently expects the final cut of the piece to run over an hour long.

To celebrate the launch of the trailer, Gameumentary is also running a competition giving fans the chance to design the cover art for both the physical copies of the documentary and the YouTube thumbnail. Full details on that competition are available here.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
