Pre-Order Darksiders II At THQ Online Store, Get Two DLC Packs And Armor & Scythe Unlock Code Free

June 21, 2012 Written by Nick Michetti

THQ has announced a new pre-order incentive for Darksiders II.

All gamers who pre-order the game at shopTHQ will not only be automatically upgraded to the Darksiders II Limited Edition (which includes free access to the first DLC pack, Argul’s Tomb, when it releases roughly one month after the game’s release), but will receive free access to the second and third DLC packs when they’re released as well. The packs are said to contain “significant new single-player content.”

Gamers who pre-order the game via shopTHQ will also receive a code to unlock the Maker’s Armor and Scythe set, which feature upgraded stats and a unique design to help players get started on Death’s quest.

THQ says that all DLC content packs will ship after the game’s release and consist of new content not originally intended for the main game.

Jim Huntley, Vice President of Global Brand Marketing, said:

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.
