THQ wants you to pre-order Darksiders II from their shop, shopTHQ. Players who do so will receive several DLC packs, free shipping and a set of in-game armor.
The way it works is that pre-orders of Darksiders II placed though shopTHQ will automatically be upgraded to the Limited Edition version of the game, which includes access to the Darksiders II Season Pass. This pass will enable players to download the second and third DLC packs at no additional cost. Furthermore, the first DLC will come with the Limited Edition version. Titled Argul’s Tomb, this DLC, will be available one month after the game’s release.
Jim Huntley, Vice President of Global Brand Marketing, had this to say:
“We are excited to be able to reward customers who pre-order the game via shopTHQ with this great incentive. Not only will they get a unique armor set at launch, but they will also get significant free content for months to come.”
Furthermore, if you want to get a Collector’s Edition and are frustrated that a lot of retailers have already sold out, you’ll be pleased to know that Collector’s Editions are still available at shopTHQ. The $99 Collector’s Edition includes:
- the Limited Edition version of the game
- a life-sized replica Death Mask with display stand
- a Shadow of Death armor and scythe set with enhanced stats
- a digital copy of the game’s soundtrack
- a hard-cover art book
Darksiders II is scheduled for a release date of August 2012 for console and PC, with a launch window release date for the Wii U.
