[UPDATE] A Nordic Games representative told GameSpot that the PS4 Darksiders II "Death-initive Edition" retail listing is indeed legitimate. More details are coming "soon."

The original story is below.

2012 action role-playing game Darksiders II is getting a definitive edition. Now we know what it's called and what the box art looks like courtesy of an Amazon product page that appears to have gone live early.

The new version is reportedly called the "Deathinitive Edition," a title that it both amazing and terrible. In Darksiders II, you play as Death, one of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse; so the name does make some sense.

The $40 Deathinitive Edition is listed only for PlayStation 4, while the page provides a December 31, 2015 placeholder release date. There is no word on an Xbox One version.

We've contacted publisher Nordic Games for more details.

Darksiders II was one of the final releases from now-defunct publisher THQ, and was released to critical acclaim in August 2012.

Upon its launch on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, GameSpot critic Kevin VanOrd wrote: "Darksiders II is remarkably well put together, particularly in light of its impressive scope."

The Darksiders franchise found no buyer in THQ's initial bankruptcy auction. However, Nordic Games later acquired the rights to the series in a multimillion dollar deal.
