THQ offers a season pass plan for Darksiders II
THQ and Vigil Games are gearing up to release Darksiders II this August, and the publisher is offering customers a number of ways to save on the game and its assorted DLC.
The conditions for a season pass depend on where you pre-order the game and what edition you buy, but here are the details:
- If you pre-order (from anywhere) Argul’s Tomb is free since you’ll automatically be upgraded to the Limited Edition. Packs 2 and 3 can then be purchased at a discounted rate through the Season Pass.
- If you pre-order from ShopTHQ you get packs 1-3 for free (since you get the Limited Edition and the Season Pass).
- If you don’t pre-order you can buy Argul’s Tomb and the other packs individually, or you can buy Argul’s Tomb and the Season Pass.
Keep in mind that the collector's edition is more expensive and contains a Death statue and in-game extras (along with the Argul's Tomb DLC). You can obtain the limited edition (which includes the DLC) by simply preordering the game from a retailer or ShopTHQ.
Vigil Games added, "All DLC content packs will ship post launch and are new content not originally intended for the main game." In case you're paranoid about slapped-on DLC and all its hairy implications now.
