Purchasers of Darksiders didn't buy just one game, they unknowingly also got a second.
The initial run of Darksiders for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 included a card marked "DO NOT DISCARD." Owners were instructed to visit the Darksiders website for updates and to wait for the code's big unveiling. It took well over a month, but the nature of this quandary has finally been disclosed.
Those who purchased Darksiders and saved the mystery code have earned a free copy of Red Faction: Guerrilla. That's right, a completely free copy, so if you have a code visit the Darksiders blog and follow the instructions. The code is basically entered on the THQ store to negate the game's cost, though shipping fees are not covered in the offer.
Alongside the free copy of Red Faction: Guerrilla, THQ is awarding a digital "Hellbook" disc that features Darksiders art, videos, and other "awesome stuff." That awesome stuff is not likely to include a third free game, sorry. The offer is only available to U.S. customers and will expire on March 7, 2010. Red Faction: Guerrilla was originally released in June 2009 and is a very well-liked game, making this offer pretty damn amazing. It's like winning the videogame lottery.
