THQ today announced that Darksiders II, in which you solve the mystery of who unleashed Armageddon as one of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, is scheduled for a June 26 release on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Additionally, Best Buy, GameStop and Amazon each have store-specific pre-order goodies for anyone who puts a down payment on the title.

Best Buy pre-orders come with an Angel of Death DLC pack, which outfits your character with angel-inspired armor, matching scythes and a custom trail for Dust, your companion crow. Amazon is offering a Deadly Despair pack, which grants you and Despair, Death’s equine companion, a burst of speed that lasts for the game’s duration. Finally, GameStop is offering the Death Rides pack, which includes extra missions in Maker’s Realm and the Dead Plains.

Each pack, as I pointed out already, is exclusive to each retailer, but you know it’s only a matter of time until they’re all available once the game’s a few months old.
