This is What’s Inside the Darksiders II Limited and Collector’s Editions


No surprise here. THQ has announced Limited Edition and Collector’s Edition versions for one of 2012’s biggest summertime gaming blockbusters, Darksiders II, which is scheduled to ship for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on June 26th.

The Limited Edition is the base level version, as it’ll be applied as a complimentary upgrade to the standard edition with all pre-orders. Don’t get your hopes up for anything too special, though; the Limited Edition simply comes packaged with a free code to download the game’s first major DLC add-on, Argul’s Tomb, once it is released at an undisclosed time after the full game’s launch.

This Limited Edition DLC extra will also come inside the pre-order exclusive Collector’s Edition, alongside various other baubles and trinkets that are now the standard for video game Collector’s Editions. Priced at $99.99 ($89.99 on PC), the CE will include a life-sized replica of Death’s mask with a display stand, a DLC gear pack including the Shadow of Death armor and scythe set, a digital copy of the game’s soundtrack and a hardcover art book.

For PS3 and Xbox 360 customers in the U.S. and Canada, Gamestop,, Best Buy,, EB Games and the store will all offer pre-orders for the Darksiders II Collector’s Edition. The PC version, however, is available exclusively at THQ’s online storefront.
