Darksiders PC pushed to September

Vigil Games' apocalyptic action game missing summer release slot on PC; coming September 24 in UK; US retailers listing game as arriving Sept. 16.

The apocalypse is an event most would rather see never happen. And for PC gamers, the beginning of the end just got pushed back three months.

The PC edition of Vigil Games' Darksiders will miss its targeted June release and will instead bombard retail and digital distribution outlets September 24 in the United Kingdom. As of press time THQ's North American arm hadn't responded to GameSpot's request for release date clarification, but GameStop has listed it for September 16.

Delaying the inevitable to September.

When Darksiders makes its way to retail, it'll also release in a special Hell Book edition. This version will include a comic book and art cards from creative director Joe Madueira, as well as a soundtrack CD.

Vigil Games is currently working on a Darksiders sequel and the massively multiplayer online role-playing game Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online, which debuted at E3 2010.

Darksiders, which shipped 1.2 million units in four weeks, tells the story of War and his mighty flaming steed Ruin. As the story goes, War inadvertently triggers the end of days after being tricked by a demon known as the Destroyer. The hornswoggled demigod then sets down a path of wanton carnage in a quest to destroy the Destroyer's minions along with the demon itself.

For more on the console versions of the game, check out GameSpot's original review of Darksiders.

I want this but no way am I paying for it at launch.. Its been out for ages and already in the $29-$49 discount bins in stores. but its marked at $89 on PC. How are they charging new game prices for an old game. No happy Jan.

Even though I have no idea what this game is or is about or the kind of action it's going to have, I'm going to get buy it as soon as it comes out to show support for companies willing to take a chance on the PC. :D

Why is this being reported now? This is known for at least 1.5 months at least.

9 months to get a port from consoles - and no doubt THQ will be surprised when it gets poor PC sales and fall back on the usual "blame piracy" excuse

@Printul_Noptii At least there's a reason Lost Planet 2 is being delayed. A good reason :D *hint, hint*

way to fail, theres been like 2 pc games thats been released in the past 3 months and these failures fail to push an anticipated game out, good luck with the competition on your zero hype game by september.

That's actually kind of good news from my point of view, it means they are taking the time to optimize it instead of making another terrible port ( Force Unleashed, oh how u dissapointed me by being completely unplayable ).

It was a nice game but needs to include more epic battles and war really needs to start fireing on all 6 cyclenders, also how come some of the monsters look like they are from WoW? but other then that lets see if part two can rock the boat.

Wait...it's missing its June release date? You mean it's NOT going to come out within the next 27 hours and ten minutes? DAMN YOU! They could've announced that earlier...I've been camping outside of this stupid GameStop for the last twenty-nine days!

Their not missing a whole lot. The game started off pretty strong for me , but after midway through kinda lost it's luster.

Having finished the PS3 version, it's really a mediocre and somewhat tedious game. You aren't missing out on much.
