Darksiders 2 launches June 26, pre-order stuff revealed

THQ has revealed that Darksiders II is coming to Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on June 26. Huzzah! It’s also revealed the various pre-order bonuses available at different retails. Huh … zuuuhr

Without further ado, here’s the extra stuff you can get, and where you can get it:

  • GameStop: “Death Rides” pack consisting of exclusive sidequests.
  • Best Buy: “Angel of Death” pack consisting of angelic armor, unique scythes, and special “trail” for the companion crow, Dust.
  • Amazon: “Deadly Despair” pack consisting of a permanent speed boost for Death’s horse, Despair.

Ah, pre-order incentives. Because the internal conflict of indecisive customers fuels the infernal engine powering our favorite industry. 

Silly DLC saturation aside, I’m looking forward to this game immensely. You can check out the pre-order chicanery in the attached gallery.
