In an interview at the Nordic Game Conference today, Deadline Games director Søren Lund confirmed to 1UP that both episodes of the Watchmen downloadable game will be sold together on a retail disc soon. Lund said the set will most likely ship alongside the Watchmen DVD/Blu-ray, which is expected on July 21 in North America, or at most within two weeks of the film's home release.

We contacted Watchmen publisher Warner Bros. to confirm specifics, and were told to expect concrete details on their plans for the package in a press release tomorrow.

For more on Watchmen, the status of Faith and a .45, and other upcoming Deadline projects, be sure to catch our full interview with Lund coming soon.

The PlayStation 3's Blu-ray drive has its advantages, as proven by the Watchmen: The End is Nigh The Complete Experience, a two-disc set collecting the game and the film for the PlayStation 3.

While the Xbox 360 is getting Watchmen: The End is Nigh Parts 1 and 2 as a standalone retail release, the PlayStation 3 is getting a much more enticing release. The two-disc set combines the director's cut of the Watchmen film with both parts of the downloadable game, with exclusive artwork thrown in for good measure. The director's cut of the movie contains 25 minutes of footage not seen in theaters, but still no giant squid.

The releases will coincide with standard DVD release on July 21st, with The End is Nigh Part 2 also available as a standalone download on Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network.
