Last week THQ announced a delay in the release of the forthcoming Darksiders II. Originally intended to launch in June, the publisher revealed that the videogame would in fact launch globally in August of this year. Today, a specific date has been pinned down.
Darksiders II is arguably one of the most highly anticipated titles of the summer, and as such THQ has plans to launch a limited edition package for all pre-orders, mirroring Namco Bandai Games’ ‘day one’ initiative used with the likes of Ace Combat: Assault Horizon and Dark Souls. The Darksiders II Limited Edition will only be available at launch, and includes a code that allows free access to the Darksiders II “Arguls Tomb” expansion, the first downloadable content (DLC) pack which will be available around thirty days from launch.
Set to arrive on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC simultaneously, Darksiders II will now be available worldwide from 21st August 2012. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Darksiders II, and other forthcoming titles from THQ.
