Did you pick up THQ's Darksiders
since it launched? Did you buy it new? If you did, I hope that you still have your receipt lying around somewhere. It was reported last week that many early copies of the game included a redemption code that up until recently served absolutely no purpose... or at least none that anyone knew about. It was revealed last week that the code / coupon entitled gamers to a free copy of THQ's Red Faction Guerilla on either the Xbox 360 or the PlayStation 3, along with some other Darksiders
THQ has given up on just offering the deal to those with the coupons and has extended the promotion to anyone who has purchased the game (new) from a retailer. Thanks to a posting on the game's official blog
, from now through March 7, 2010, gamers in the US can go to THQ's official website and fill out a rebate form
to claim their loot. Those interested in claiming their freebies just need to fill out the rebate form and include three things: your original receipt, the UPC from the game, and $5 for shipping and handling. Remember, they are only offering this promotion through March 7
so you will have to get a move on it if you want to claim your semi-free game. That isn't a bad deal considering that Red Faction Guerrilla was a pretty well-received
game... and just for $5. Get on it...
Here are the direct links for ordering the Xbox 360
and the PlayStation 3
versions of your free copy of Red Faction: Guerrilla
Also there is now a press release after the jump.

Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of mankind, WAR – the first Horseman of the Apocalypse – must return to Earth to search for the truth and punish those responsible. War must take on the forces of Heaven and Hell, forge uneasy alliances with the very demons he hunts, and journey across the ravaged remains of the Earth on his quest for vengeance. Players harness the apocalyptic power of War, combining brutal attacks and supernatural abilities to decimate enemies who stand in his way. With an extreme arsenal of weapons, War blazes a trail of destruction, and emerges even more deadly atop Ruin, War’s fiery phantom steed. Darksiders is now available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

About Red Faction: Guerrilla
Red Faction: Guerrilla is a 3rd person, open-world shooter set on Mars, 50 years after the events of the original Red Faction. Players take on the role of freedom fighter Alec Mason, with the newly re-established Red Faction movement, as they battle for liberation from the oppressive Earth Defense Force (EDF). Throughout their fight for freedom, players can carve their own path, wreaking havoc across the vast, open-world environment of Mars, from the desolate mining outpost of Parker to the gleaming EDF capital city of Eos. Utilizing improvised weapons, explosives and re-purposed mining equipment and vehicles, Red Faction: Guerrilla allows players to tear through fully destructible environments in a Martian landscape swarming with EDF forces, Red Faction resistance fighters, and the downtrodden settlers caught in the cross-fire. Red Faction: Guerrilla features a robust multiplayer experience, including several modes focused on destruction-based game-play.
