Darksiders 2 to Hit Xbox One and PS4 This Winter
Death rides a pale horse towards the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition will launch this winter.
Nordic Games announced all kinds of details about its upcoming HD re-release of Darksiders 2. The Deathinitive Edition of Darksiders 2 will feature upgraded visuals as well as all of the game's DLC, including Argul's Tomb, Demon Lord Belial, Death Rides, Angel of Death and the various weapon packs. As with all HD remastered games, Darksiders 2 will run at a native 1080p (though Nordic Games did not say anything about frame rate). This re-release is being handled by Gunfire Games, which is comprised of former Vigil Games members who worked on the original Darksiders games.
“We took over the franchise roughly 2 years ago and thought about the next chapter for Darksiders ever since then. Naturally (and extremely excitedly!), there will be a large-scale project based on Darksiders, but for now it is very important for us to take care of the existing games and make those available to a broader audience," said Nordic Games' Business & Product Development Director Reinhard Pollice. "Bringing Darksiders 2 to current gen was a logical step for us and the team at Gunfire Games know their trade inside-out, so we easily and quickly had lots of ideas that we wanted to realize for this specific edition.”
“It feels good to be working on Darksiders again, after a couple of years of hiatus”, added David Adams, founder and president of Gunfire Games. “This project is a great opportunity for us to pick up where we left off two years ago and dig deeper into the game, which is close to all our hearts. Bringing the definitive Darksiders 2 experience to life is something that we hope a lot of people will enjoy and look forward to.”
The Deathinitive Edition will have you playing as Death, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. You'll tear through both Heaven and Hell in an epic adventure and can customize Death's fighting style and armor sets. As you would expect, this re-release features re-tuned gameplay and improved loot distribution.
While no launch date has been set, we'll be able to play Darksiders 2 on PS4 and Xbox One this winter.
