Both Darksiders and Red Faction are to receive their own 'Collection' editions where the entire series is bundled. Nordic Games bought the rights to the IPs from THQ, and these packs are to 'gauge the fans'.

The Darksiders Collection and the Red Faction Collection will be releasing PC and PS3, with only Darksiders also hitting Xbox 360. There is no set date for either pack yet.
