If you’re thinking about pre-ordering Darksiders II from Best Buy, Amazon, or Gamestop maybe I can help you make your decision. THQ announced the pre-order incentives this morning on their forums.
The pre-order incentive varies with each individual retailer. Continue reading below for the full list of details for each pre-order incentive from the select retailers:
Gamestop: ‘Death Rides’ Pack-Features multiple exclusive side-quests allowing players to explore more of the Maker’s Realm and Dead Plains. In addition players will be able to aid an ancient Construct, battle The Bloodless and retrieve Karn’s lost treasure.
Best Buy:‘Angel of Death’ Pack-Features enhanced armor with an angel inspired design as well as a pair of matching scythes. In addition players will receive an exclusive purple colored visual trail for their crow.
Amazon: ‘Deadly Despair’ Pack-Features an additional speed boost for Death’s horse Despair, that allows players to traverse the world at a much faster rate.
I think Gamestop is the winner here. I would much rather have more playable content, than to get from point A to point B more quickly (even if running from enemies) or have stronger, more decorated armor. In reality, if you want any of these things – they’ll all be DLC faster than you can say “pestilence.”
