Death is taking over Comic-Con International, as THQ Inc.’s highly anticipated action-adventure game Darksiders II will have a major presence throughout the San Diego Convention Center, including a scavenger hunt for exclusive Tarot cards that tie-in with the game.
From the Press Release:
Fans can get their hands on playable Darksiders II demos at the GameFan Magazine booth (#4112) as well as at the booths of Random House (#1514), Prima Games (#1514), and Spike (#3729). In addition to the demo, Darksiders II creative director Joe Madureira (artist on Avenging Spider-Man, The Ultimates, X-Men) and art director Han Randhawa, together with Dark Horse Comics, will host a panel on Friday, July 13th at 3:30 p.m. in Room 5AB to discuss the process of bringing the art of Darksiders II to life.
Comic-Con attendees also can participate in a mini-scavenger hunt by collecting exclusive Darksiders II Tarot cards in the partner booths of Dark Horse (#2615), Random House, and Prima Games. Fans that collect all three unique cards can present them at the GameFan Magazine booth and receive a limited edition fourth Darksiders II Tarot card.
“Comic-Con is a great opportunity for THQ to connect with Darksiders fans as we get close to the game’s August release date,” said Jim Huntley, Vice President of Global Brand Marketing. “We can’t wait for them to get their hands on the game in the Convention Center.”
Darksiders II follows the exploits of Death, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in an action-packed tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game. This epic journey propels Death through various light and dark realms as he tries to redeem his brother War, the horseman blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse in Darksiders.
Darksiders II launches for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on August 14, 2012, in the United States. For more information, check out the official Darksiders II website.
