Free PC download of Darksiders if you preorder Darksiders II via shopTHQ


Friday the 13th might be unlucky for some, but THQ Australia are doing their best to bring some good cheer to the dark day, by giving anyone who pre-orders Darksiders II via shopTHQ Australia on any platform a free PC download of Darksiders. Yes. You heard that correctly. Darksiders on PC is free to anyone who pre-orders Darksiders II from THQ’s digital store. But the offer is only valid for today, so get onto it if you want it!

The full press announcement, straight from THQ Australia is:

THQ Australia has decided to celebrate Friday the 13th, by giving anyone who pre-orders the Darksiders II via shopTHQ on any platform a free PC download of Darksiders.  This is in addition to the current Darksiders II pre-order offers, which are:

  • Xbox 360 & PC Box: Darksiders II Season Pass – Day 60 and 90 DLC
  • PlayStation 3: Saints Row 2 PS3 disc at no extra charge
  • PC Download: Darksiders II Season Pass and Metro 2033 PC Download at no extra charge

This offer is valid for today only.

Darksiders, released in January 2010, received critical acclaim including the Best Fantasy Game 2010 award from IGN. Darksiders followed the story of WAR, wrongly accused of starting the apocalypse, on a quest to reclaim lost honor and take revenge on those who wronged him.

So why not make your own luck on this Very Dark Day, by heading over to and placing your pre-order today.

Darksiders II is scheduled to be available for console and PC in August 2012, and a WiiU version is scheduled for release in the launch window. For more information check

So there you have it – if you haven’t already tried Darksiders – this is a perfect chance to try it on PC. As pre-order bonuses go – nabbing a free copy of a game is a damn good deal – much better than a custom skin or special weapon for multiplayer. Grab it quickly however – as this deal is only valid for today, Friday the 13th.
