2K Games is following the strategy employed by many other publishers as of late. All pre-orders of the upcoming FPS The Darkness II will be upgraded to a "Limited Edition" for free. Yes, it will be "limited" and "while supplies last." In spite of the first game having sold a million copies.

Many of the bonuses added to the bundle are digital, such as an alternate darkling "Crazy Abdul" outfit and two character ability upgrades.

The "Gourmet Hearts" upgrade provides a bonus for eating hearts. The "Relic Hunter" upgrade locates collectible items in the world.

In addition, the Limited Edition includes a digital download for the first two volumes of The Darkness Origins comic.

There is at least one physical bonus included with the upgraded bundle. There will be a custom illustration by Marc Silverstri.

The Darkness II will be available on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on February 7th, 2012.

      Funny hearing Shane Bettenhausen talk on weekend confirmed this week how simply changing the name to "limited" or "special" edition guarantees a huge increase in pre-orders, even if there's nothing different about it.
