In addition to the standard $59.99 version of the game, there will also be two premium editions of Darksiders 3. The Collector’s Edition costs $149.99 and includes a copy of the game, an 11-inch-tall Fury figurine, a premium box, a steelbook, an artbook, soundtrack, and exclusive armor DLC (cosmetic; does not affect gameplay). The Apocalypse Edition, meanwhile, runs $399.99 and includes the latter four items, a copy of the game, as well as its own premium box, a 30”x 40” wall scroll (with hanger), a 2-inch heavyweight amulet with necklace, and four figurines: Fury (11" tall), War, Death, and Vulgrim (10" tall each).

Do they know something nobody else does about the popularity and hype for this game that they think people will spend $400 on it?

Yeah, it's really odd that they would create such an expensive SKU for a franchise with fairly middling sales.

I own the first two games and have never played them. Got the first one cheap and the second for free.

 

Ha - exact same for me.  I am guessing this third game is going to follow suit.   OOOOR I could buy it for $400.  Hmmmm

Aren't these special editions designed for the relatively low number of hardcore fans rather then trying to sell 100k copies of a $150 SE?

 

Personally I would never buy one of these, or SE in general, but if just a few hundred people who are big fans of the series buy this it seems worth it to the publisher.

 

We all have a few games that most people don't care about, but we might shell out an inordinate amount of money for a SE. Even if it's not my favorite game out there, DS seems like a good enough game series, with the addition of it's unique aesthetic, to have some really big fans.

I believe I got Darksiders 1 on PS3 through PS+ years ago. Then I got Darksiders 2 on PS4.

 

What I played of the original on PS3 was good enough to make me grab the Remastered edition on PS4 during this current sale for 2 bucks. I figure if I ever feel like going through both games now I'll have the Remastered set.
