So a lot of people have been floundering on how to get and use the redeem codes for the Darksiders 2 hammers Van Der Schmash and Mace Maximus. I'm putting up this post for Steam PC users who are confused about the whole process.
|Though both have identical damage stats, the Mace Maximus is the weapon of choice when you want a charged attack that clears mobs...|
|...while the Van Der Schmash has a charged attack that's geared towards taking down a single foe.|
The (Steam PC) guide can be found after the jump.
First off, make sure you've linked your game to a THQ account. The first time you fire up Darksiders 2, the game should walk you through in creating a THQ account and/or linking the game to the account. (Needless to say, make sure what you enter is a valid e-mail account and that you have access to it!)
After doing that, your email should have a letter similar to this one:
Please take note that you'll only get the redeem code for the Mace Maximus if you had purchased Darksiders II before it launched last August 28, 2012 (ie, pre-purchased the game).
Login to your THQ account that you linked the game to then go to the URLs indicated in the e-mail: http://darksiders.com/mace and http://darksiders.com/register. You should then receive codes in both windows (one if you haven't pre-purchased the game; you won't be able to get the Mace Maximus, only the Van Der Schmash).
Login to your Steam account, then under Games, click "Activate a Product on Steam."
This pop-up will appear:
Click Next to continue. Enter the codes you received. (Needless to say, redeem each code separately; copy-pasting both codes simultaneously into the same field will not work. I had to drop this line in. An acquaintance did ask about that.)
If you don't run into THQ tech problems, you should see the following screens each time you redeem a hammer (axe; whatever):
If you do run into problems and the above doesn't work for you, please see the following forums:
