Here’s a deal. Pre-ordering Darksiders III from the Microsoft Store will get you both of the previous games in the series, in revamped forms.
This is a pretty sharp bundle. Well, it is if you’re a new Darksiders fan anyway. Or maybe if you played the original games, but neglected trying out the remastered editions that came out a few years ago. Either way, it’s a good deal.
Darksiders III is, of course, coming out this month. There are a bunch of physical and digital versions for you to pick up, but one has a pretty solid advantage against the others. If you’re not averse to digital games, then you might want to grab the Darksiders III: Blades & Whip Edition from the Microsoft Store.
Pre-ordering that version gets you a 10% discount, exclusive armor set, and a 24 hour head start over everyone else with an early release. But that’s not all. You’ll also get both Darksiders: Warmastered and Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition for free. That’s both of the remasters for the previous two games in the set.
Unfortunately, there is a little bit of a bummer to be had too. You won’t actually be able to play the free games will November 26th, which is Darksiders III’s release date. So it’s not like you can play through both of them before you dive into III, which would have been ideal. Though, if you’re a GamesPass subscriber you can do that anyway, so maybe it’s not such a big deal after all. Both titles are currently included with that paid service.
If not though, the Blades & Whip Edition is still a very valid option to get yourself at least two (maybe three) great games. It’ll run you $89.99 USD and is available here.
