Darksiders Remaster Coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Wii U [UPDATE]
It looks like the first Darksiders game is getting a fresh coat of paint.
Update: Two key details have now been shared through a press release: Darksiders Warmastered Edition releases on October 25 for $20. It also mentions the PC version includes 4K support and "additional video options."
Original Story: After a leak earlier this week, publisher Nordic Games' website reveals that Darksiders is getting remastered. Called Darksiders Warmastered Edition, the game is coming to PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, and PC.
As detailed on the website, the Warmastered Edition improves upon the original 2010 action/adventure game in a number of ways. For instance, it'll run at native 1080p on consoles. It also hits 60 frames per second on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, although the Wii U version is limited to 30 frames per second.
The changes also include:
- Doubled texture resolutions
- Rendering improvements and rework
- Better shadow rendering quality
- Post processing effects
This week a couple European sites (NextN and PCGames) leaked the remaster early. We don't have word on when it'll launch or what price it'll be--the website only says "coming soon."
