THQ has announced the actual, proper launch date for Darksiders II today, seeing Death sharpening his scythe in time for late June. As is the fashion in this day and age, Darksiders II will have its own set of pre-order incentives too, in the shape of a few bonus DLC packs from selected retailers.
Pre-orders at GAME and Gamestation (and GameStop in Ireland), will garner the 'Death Rides' pack, which comes with several exclusive side quests set in locations like Maker's Realm and Dead Plains. It's there that you'll be able to take on these quests, earning additional experience and loot in the process including Karn's lost treasure, spread across around two hours of content.
The 'Deadly Despair' pack meanwhile, is available for anyone pre-ordering the game from Amazon.co.uk, giving you a permanent speed boost for Death's steed, Despair. You'll be able to gallop across the vast world of Darksiders II much quicker thanks to that one, which is nice.
Finally, another retailer yet to be confirmed will be getting the 'Angel of Death' pack with an angel-inspired set of enhanced armour with matching upgraded scythes and a visual trail for Death's crow, Dust.
Darksiders II will be coming to North America on June 26th and Europe on June 29th. Check out some new pre-order screens below.
