It will release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on June 26 in North America, and June 29 in Europe.
Users who pre-order through GAME and Gamestation in the UK and GameStop in the US will receive the 'Death Rides' pack. The pack features over two hours of exclusive side-quests where players can explore more of the Maker's Realm and Dead Plains areas.
Amazon pre-orders in both the UK and US will receive the 'Deadly Despair' pack, which allows players to cross the game's world faster with a speed boost for Death's horse, Despair.
Best Buy in the US and an as-yet unspecified UK retailer will offer the 'Angel of Death' pack for pre-orders. The pack includes armour and weapons for Death with an angel-inspired design, as well as a purple visual trail following Death's crow.
The story of Darksiders 2 will run parallel to that of the first Darksiders game. Players will take on the role of the horseman of Death as he travels through the Abyss to redeem his brother War and undo the apocalypse.
A Wii U version is also in development for a later release.
