Earlier this week on the official Darksiders Facebook page, THQ announced a companion app for Vigil's upcoming Darksiders II, one that apparently lets you harvest souls. Well, not literally.
Aside from providing a bit of amusement, the app also lets users unlock an exclusive weapon that may be used in the full game by, er, harvesting nearby souls who've checked into Facebook. You may also grab the first issue of the Darksiders digital comic, plus other unspecified loot.
In addition to that, daily prizes are being given away through the app, like a full-sized Death Scythe (that'd be Death's primary weapon) and Darksiders themed Xbox 360 console.
Unfortunately, the app is only available for iOS at this time, though THQ is investigating the possibility of an Android version. Keep your fingers crossed.
In the meantime, expect Darksiders II to arrive August 14, for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
