According to an announcement from THQ today, Darksiders 2 fans will have the option of paying in advance for every piece of planned DLC at a discount.
Season passes are relatively common these days in major shooter franchises like Call of Duty and Halo, but rarely seen in action games like Darksiders.
The season pass will encompass all three currently planned DLC single-player packs which will be released one per month after the release of Darksiders 2.
In addition to this, ShopTHQ is holding a special sale which gives you the season pass absolutely free when you pre-order Darksiders 2 (full price up-front.) Which is a pretty spectacular deal, really. Sounds like it's time for on-the-fence gamers considering a purchase of D2 to do some soul searching.
It's not too surprising that THQ would be offering some great deals for D2, though. They've said in the past that they desperately need a hit game, and Darksiders 2 could definitely be that hit. From the looks of it, they're putting their full weight behind this one and praying for a home run.
