Australian gamers who pre-order Darksiders II through shopTHQ will receive a free copy of Saints Row 2 in place of the PlayStation 3 Season Pass, and a free copy of Metro 2033 if they buy the PC version.

THQ Australia announced today that due to the Season Pass – which is part of the US pre-order incentive – not being available on Australian PlayStation 3's and PCs, the Aussie pre-order bonus for the PS3 will be topped up with a copy of Saints Row 2, and PC versions will be topped up with the post-apocalyptic shooter, Metro 2033. All Darksiders II Limited Edition pre-orders placed in Australia and around the world via shopTHQ will receive two downloadable content drops and an exclusive set of in-game armor and free shipping.

The Darksiders II Season pass that many Australian gamers are missing out on entitle those who pre-order the game through shopTHQ to download the second and third DLC packs for free when they become available.

The vice president of global brand marketing at THQ, Jim Huntley, said: "We are excited to be able to reward customers who pre-order the game via shopTHQ with these great incentives. Not only will they get a unique armor set at launch, but they will also get significant free content for months to come," he said in a statement.

"And while the Season Pass is not available on PlayStation 3 in Australia, we think PS3 owners will enjoy the opportunity to play another THQ title in Saints Row 2 at no extra cost."

Darksiders II is scheduled to be available for console and PC in August 2012. A Wii U version is also in the works.
