Digital distribution is all the rage now, for anyone with a decent computer and reliable Internet. So it makes sense that they'd have pre-order perks too, right?
Direct 2 Drive, GameTap, and Steam -- three members of Electronic Software Distribution (ESD) -- are offering free games if you pre-order Darksiders PC with them. Each retailer has an exclusive bonus:
- D2D - Titan Quest Gold Edition
- Steam - Red Faction Guerrilla
- GameTap - Company of Heroes
Darksiders will be out for PC in a few days, on September 23.
Digital distributors are relatively selective about their games, and they're not fans of third party software intruding upon their digital inventory. Several virtual retailers passed on Modern Warfare 2 because Steamworks was all up in its business.
