I am currently unsure if it's November or April and someone is playing an April Fools joke. THQ Nordic are the culprits of said joke with their new Darksiders: Warmastered Special edition being priced at £66,600. The purchase comes with a Darksiders-branded bespoke horse stable, yes that's right, a real horse stable.
"A horse stable collector’s edition makes perfect sense for a game that stars War, the first Horseman of the Apocalypse,” says Nik Blower, Franchise Director and Senior Key Account Manager Sales at THQ Nordic. “Whilst the bespoke unit is built to withstand the demands of most phantom horses, Darksiders Warmastered Edition ‘The Scalding Gallow’ will also serve just as well as a home for less apocalyptic breeds.”
Available now for pre-order exclusively online in the UK through Green Man Gaming, the package includes the mobile horse stable and includes the game on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Wii U as well as the respective consoles, i.e. the PlayStation 4 Pro, the Xbox One S, the Nintendo Wii U, and an Alienware Area-51 top-of-the-line gaming PC rig.
It's hard to tell if this a real bundle that someone will actually purchase or just a marketing ploy to get people like me to write about the remaster of the critically acclaimed game. Darksiders was a fantastic spectacle fighter/platformer that featured the voice of Mark Hammil. telling the story of a biblical apocalypse that starts too early, the game places you in the role of War one of the four horsemen and you are blamed for starting the end times early. The PC version will release on November 29th.
