Darksiders 2 PS4 & Xbox One release date confirmed
Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition will release worldwide on PS4 and Xbox One on October 27, Nordic Games has confirmed.
Developed by many of the game's original creators at Gunfire Games, the current-gen port offers a number of improvements over the earlier Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, including enhanced 1080p visuals, improved textures and lighting, additional gameplay balancing and every piece of previously-released DLC.
"It's rare that as developers we get the opportunity to revisit one of our previous games," said design director John Pearl. "The passage of time and the numerous games we’ve worked on since Darksiders II shipped has allowed us to return to it with a fresh perspective. With that said, we went back to what is a huge game and addressed things we didn't have time for or didn’t notice the first time. We started by revisiting every asset in the game, increasing the texture resolutions and brought the art up to spec to take full advantage of the new lighting and rendering.
"Darksiders II has a lot of DLC in the form of weapons, armor and unique locations. These pieces of DLC which felt separate from the main campaign have now been integrated into the game and rebalanced accordingly. Lastly, we've addressed much of the feedback we received after the game’s release in regards to balance and bugs. With all these changes, this is truly the Definitive Edition of Darksiders II."
Darksiders 2 originally launched on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC back in 2012, and follows the story of Death, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and his horse Despair as they attempt to clear the name of his brother War.
