Today THQ Nordic has announced ‘The Scalding Gallow’, a one-of-a-kind collector’s edition for Darksiders Warmastered Edition, due for release on 22 November 2016 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The PC version will release on November 29th 2016. More information on the Wii U release date for Nintendo’s Wii U system will follow.
Available now for pre-order exclusively online in the UK through Green Man Gaming, the centerpiece of the one-off premium edition is a Darksiders-branded bespoke horse stable, ideal for housing your own apocalyptic steed like Ruin, the phantom horse ridden by the game’s star War.
Named after the hub world in the game, ‘The Scalding Gallow’ horse stable is a unique mobile unit measuring 10.8 x 3.6m, includes a tack room with floor, a 3m x 3.6m haybarn and two 3m x 3.6 stables that can house two phantom horses (sold separately), whilst the outside of the unit is emblazoned with Darksidersartwork and logos.
Darksiders Warmastered Edition ‘The Scalding Gallow’ edition is available exclusively through Green Man Gaming for one UK-based customer, at the devilish sum of £66,600, and includes the game on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Wii U as well as the respective consoles, i.e. the PlayStation 4 Pro, the Xbox One S, the Nintendo Wii U, and an Alienware Area-51 top-of-the-line gaming PC rig.
“A horse stable collector’s edition makes perfect sense for a game that stars War, the first Horseman of the Apocalypse,” says Nik Blower, Franchise Director and Senior Key Account Manager Sales at THQ Nordic. “Whilst the bespoke unit is built to withstand the demands of most phantom horses, Darksiders Warmastered Edition ‘The Scalding Gallow’ will also serve just as well as a home for less apocalyptic breeds.”

About Darksiders Warmastered Edition:
Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of the world, War – the first Horseman of the Apocalypse – stands accused of breaking the sacred law by inciting a war between Heaven and Hell. In the slaughter that ensued, the demonic forces defeated the heavenly hosts and laid claim to the Earth.
Brought before the sacred Charred Council, War is indicted for his crimes and stripped of his powers. Dishonored and facing his own death, War is given the opportunity to return to Earth to search for the truth and punish those responsible.
Hunted by a vengeful group of Angels, War must take on the forces of Hell, forge uneasy alliances with the very demons he hunts, and journey across the ravaged remains of the Earth on his quest for vengeance and vindication.
