If you missed out on 2010’s excellent apocalyptic hack-‘n-slash Darksiders (or perhaps you just want to give it another playthrough), you’re in luck. The action adventure game is getting a remastered edition, which will arrive on Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, and PC on 25 October 2016.
Titled Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, the game will support 1080p/60fps on PS4 and Xbox One, although that’ll drop to 30fps on Wii U. The PC version, meanwhile, includes support for 4K resolutions and “additional visual options”.
The Warmastered Edition is being developed by the experienced developers at Kaiko, who have already been involved with some of Nordic Games’ projects in the past, like the Xbox One Version of Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition and Legend of Kay Anniversary.
Some of the new features include:
- Native 1080p rendering resolution for console platforms
- 4k support and additional video options for PC
- Doubled all the texture resolutions
- Rendering improvements and rework
- Better shadow rendering quality
- Post processing effects
- 60 FPS in moment to moment gameplay (PS4, Xbox One, PC, 30 for WiiU)
The game will retail for €19.90, which equates to around R312 at the time of writing.
Darksiders is one of our favourite games of the last generation, with fun, creative gameplay, a gorgeous art-style and a compelling fantasy story. Definitely worth checking out when the Warmastered edition arrives later this year.
