Darksiders 1 and 2 are real cheap on Steam, PS4 and Xbox One not so much

By Melvyn Tan on May 3, 2017

Following the recent reveal of Darksiders 3, the first two games in the series have gotten their prices hacked and slashed at, resulting in discounts for them on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

On PSN and the Microsoft Store, the newly released Darksiders: Fury Collection - War and Death bundles the special editions of the first two games (titled Darksiders Warmastered - War's Redemption and Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition - Death's Revenge respectively) for $39.99 (RM172.36). Thanks to a discount, they're now $19.99 (RM86.16) and $20 (RM86.20) respectively, with the PSN sale running until May 9's 11th hour.

Steam users on the other hand get to enjoy a much better deal, with the franchise pack containing Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition and the Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition Soundtrack and offering them for RM19 (original price RM95). The two games can also be bought separately at RM7.60 and RM11.20 respectively, while the soundtrack is RM2.40.

However, this sweet deal ends this Thursday at 10AM Pacific Time, meaning that it'll end in less than 35 hours at time of writing.

As noted on the Steam page, the Deathnitive version of Darksiders 2 integrates all DLC into the game and adds Steam trading cards to the PC version as well. It also features tweaked game balance and loot distribution, improved visuals and supports a native 1080p resolution; the Warmastered version of Darksiders comes with visual improvements and native 1080p support as well.

To recap on things a bit, the first Darksiders focuses on the first Horseman of the Apocalypse, War, who is accused of ending the world a wee bit early and heads back to Earth to clear his name, battling both angels and demons in the process. Darksiders 2 stars War's brother and fellow Horseman Death instead, as he seeks to redeem War's name.

Darksiders 3, set to release next year, will center on female Horseman Fury, who is on a quest to defeat the Seven Deadly Sins ad restore balance on Earth.
