- Darksiders II: The Abyssal Forge Pack:
The Shadow Forge is a blight upon the history of the Makers – a dark Forge crafted to harness the unfocused power of the Abyss. For eons it has sat abandoned, sealed off from the tree by the Makers themselves. But the hand of corruption has weakened the seals placed by the Makers, and the way to the Shadow Forge has once again opened.
- Your Quest:
The Shadow Forge is a construct — a living machine of stone and metal powered by an old and powerful heart stone. When the Makers sealed the Shadow Forge away, they left this living machine to linger in isolation for thousands of years. In time, it has gone mad. Over those millennia, the Forge has built an army of powerful constructs – beasts not of stone, but of metal. Additionally, some small element of the Abyss has been infused in these form, giving them powers beyond those of a normal construct. The Forge plans to use the now opened portal on the tree to invade other worlds with his powerful construct army. Death must stop this.
- Darksiders II: The Lord Demon Belial:
Death learns of a human survivor on Earth. The story told by the Council was that mankind was wiped out almost immediately after the Apocalypse, but the existence of survivors would change much. If the Third Kingdom has not been completely destroyed, perhaps they can be protected – and War’s name cleared.
- Your Quest:
Uriel tells Death that her Hellguard have reported seeing survivors, and that she thinks there is some shred of humanity clinging to life. A Hunter he encounters during his trek asks Death if he would free him from his shame – kill the Demon Lord that took his soul, and leave him to die in peace. If Death does this, he agrees to give Death some information on where he might find some humans hiding out…and a confrontation with the Demon Lord.

I loved the base Darksiders II game - so the Season Pass could only make it better, right? Well, it started off adding fun new quests and characters to interact with - but the final DLC was only like 30 minutes long and was super easy. You will likely be at the level cap by the time you get to the final DLC - so the loot is pretty much worthless.

The DLC honestly didn't add much to the game play experience. it only was more of a "Yeah lets just play a different campaign". I wasn't very pleased with it. I enjoyed Darksiders 1 A LOT and 2 was a bit of a disappointment overall. I don't recommend buying this DLC unless you just want maybe a couple of hours of extra gameplay. Other than that it's not that worth it, IMO.

The season pass offers 2 content DLC and 1 armor DLC, the content DLC itselfs are $10 per so it will result in a $20 price if you do not care about the cosmetic Maker armor DLC. It is recommended to get it whenever you feel like it.
As for the content itself, at the moment only the Maker armors and the Abyssal Forge is out for the season pass. The armors will become obsolete depending on your level
The Abyssal Forge DLC is the same as other DLC by THQ, not enough content, it packs 2 bosses, 2 dungeons, and around 2-3 hours of additional gameplay.
The final piece of the season pass is not out at the point of this review but regardless not worth getting the season pass just for that last part assuming that the DLC is good. If you are a big Darksiders 2 fans, then I would highly recommend you getting it when it is 75% off or get it whenever you feel like it and not make an immediate purchase or you will be disappointed.
Only a pass as many othersZinzun | Oct. 5, 2012 | See all Zinzun's reviews »
As for Borderlands 2 (and for Assassin's Creed 3),the new trend is make this "season" pass where essentially you preorder (and pre-pay) future DLC. This one will gives you access to two future DLC,the Abissal Forge one and Lord Demon Belial one. The DLC are not out,so no ones can say if this pass it's worth it. My advise is:buy it if you enjoyed Darksiders 2,but whait if you didn't like it very much.This way there will be some reviews about DLC and so you can choose if buy it or not.
