Darksiders II Xbox 360 l PS3 l PC
DEVELOPER: Vigil Games
RELEASE DATE: August 14, 2012
I have the great pleasure of offering a unique perspective on a video game for a select group of potential players. Usually when I review a game it’s one that I’m familiar with and one that I’ve been anticipating for multiple years. In the case of Darksiders II, I went in almost completely blind.
I never played the original Darksiders. I did play its demo when it was made available and was thoroughly neutral; I didn’t hate it or anything, but had no intentions of playing the full game, either. Because of this, I had absolutely no knowledge whatsoever of Darksiders II, allowing me a chance to offer an opinion to those who never played the first but are thinking about checking out the sequel.
There’s several pre-order bonuses and discounts at Amazon and Best Buy for the upcoming video game Darksiders II, which will be released on August 14, 2012.
At Amazon, when you pre-order the game for Xbox 360, PS3, or PC, you will get the Arguls Tomb expansion pack featuring extra gameplay content, including a whole new dungeon to explore. You’ll also get the Amazon exclusive Deadly Despair Pack, which adds a permanent speed boost for Death’s trusty steed Despair, allowing players to travel across the vast world even faster than before. The pre-order bonus as well as a 10% discount is available for the PC Download version (which will be available for download at midnight the day of the game’s release).
At Best Buy, if you pre-order a copy of the Darksiders II: Angel of Death Collector’s Edition for either Xbox 360 or PS3, you’ll get an exclusive Darksiders II prequel comic book from Dark Horse Comics titled Darksiders II: Death’s Door, along the Best Buy exclusive Angel of Death Pack.
