So, originally I thought this was some kind of mistake, but when I spoke with Xbox Customer Support, they confirmed that it is legit. 

 

If you purchase the Darksiders Fury's Collection on the Xbox Digital Store ($39.99), it includes a copy of Darksiders 3 - Blades & Whip Edition ($89.99 normally).

They also confirmed, as was in my case, that if you already purchased the Darksiders Fury's Collection, you already have Darksiders 3 - Blades & Whip Edition included. I verified this by going to the Darksiders 3 - Blades & Whip Edition store page, and it says it's already preordered.

Can confirm, also. Bought it and it shows up as purchased on the site.

Doubt this will be the case on PS4 but it would be awesome if it is. I'm thinking it will it revoked since that's borderline a steal at that price.

I am in for 1. Loved the first one, not overly fond of the second one. Let's see how this bundle plays out.

That's insane, but it looks legit. I picked this up for $20 at some point. Wow. Awesome.

Same here. I got it for $20 a while back during one of their big sales.

Thanks picked it up. Hopefully I can play it on pc. Even if I can't it's still a good deal.

It's pretty obviously a mistake no matter what a customer service person says but yeah get in before it gets corrected.

Thanks OP. This is a great price just for the base game.

Yeah too good to resist. I had some points to use so it made this even better. Thanks!

Personally not gonna do it. I will resist! The first one was great, second was meh, and I have them both a couple times over. Buying this just for the third negates my cheap-assness.

I think I have about 15 versions of Darksiders already. I think the only reason they make those games are to give them away.

this must be a mistake. I don't understand why a $40 collection would include a $90 new game. But it shows all three as owned now for me

I am interested in this but I have a question about preorder collector editions on XBL.

Do preorder bonuses show up as separate codes in your Xbox message inbox? Or will the bonus item (the preorder skin for this Darksiders 3 edition) come as a bundled installation with the base game together? TIA

The fact that people can click install to Xbox One on the Dark Siders III MS web store page even if you bought the combo last year tells me this is going to get nuked like a free Fallout 4 situation. I clicked anyway since I didn't own it yet but I'm not going to start 1 and 2 up till the dust settles in case I have to refund them. They are both on game pass already and are in the PSN summer sale for $1.99 each.

Yeah it's a mistake on XBL, the same collection exists on PSN as well but is only 1 & 2, the price itself is technically correct it just shouldn't include 3.

Too good a deal to pass up, looks like other sites reporting legit also, can't wait, loved the first two, will have to replay.

Came here to post about this but seems I'm way late to the party heh. Still live as of right now. Too bad I could never get into these games; I think I'm just past playing platformers anymore.

Honestly everyone that buys this will probably not get darksiders 3...really think this is a listing error that won’t be honored

Darksiders isn't a platformer. It plays a lot like Zelda.

Did you buy DS2DE before getting gamepass?

I think the definitive editions are all linked to DS3 at the moment. So in listing DS3 for preorder somebody at MS linked the preorder to the other two games. I wouldn't be surprised if anybody that had already purchased DS1 also has DS3 automatically preordered as well. With Gamepass you save an additional 20% so that's a great deal for DS3 if they end up honoring it.

Thinking about the Fury bundle but I don't know if they'll give me the preorder bonus code separately or not.

Looks like they have removed Darksiders 3 from the Collection, which means it now says I don't own Darksiders 3. The pricing error is corrected.

Still shows Darksiders III in the bundle, but won't let me order it.  Keep getting an error.  Bummer.

If you preordered DS3 directly, yes. However, if you ordered the Darksiders Fury's Collection hoping to get a copy of DS3, that will not happen.
