2K Games sequel The Darkness II, the FPS horror shooter is making a return in 2012. To mark the occasion, 2K Games will be offering a free first day bonus Limited Edition upgrade for anyone that pre-orders the standard edition through selected stockists.
The news of the free limited edition incentive was first revealed back in 2011. In case you missed it the first time, the contents of the Limited Edition includes:
- Custom artwork illustrated by Marc Silvestri
- Free digital download of The Darkness Origins Volume 1 and 2 comics
Exclusive In-Game Items:
- Alternate darkling outfit – “Crazy Abdul”
- Two character ability upgrades:
- Gourmet Hearts: provides bonus for eating hearts
- Relic Hunter: locates collectible items in the world
With the release of The Darkness II looming ever closer, Esperino is taking a look through the Australian stockists to find the best possible price for day one purchasers. Not to take anything away from The Darkness series, it isn’t exactly one of the most loved franchises out there and this somewhat shows with the lack of any retailer offering any sort of pre-order extras.
The only store to offer any sort of bonus is online retailer Mighty Ape who are giving customers an A2 poster with any purchase of The Darkness II on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or PC.
Now you might say that I’m hating on The Darkness II but quite the contrary. I had a chance to give The Darkness II a fairly extended playthrough at the EB Games Expo in 2011 and it was quite a treat to play. The Darkness II may even be one of this year’s most underrated games if the demo version is anything to go by.
But I digress, let’s take a look at the retailers and see who has The Darkness II Limited Edition:
