As announced previously, the Deathinitive Edition boasts 1080p graphics and includes all DLC released for the game during its initial run (full list below). In addition, the game uses a new rendering engine to improve how the lighting and shadows look. Players can also expect better graphics overall for characters and environments; check out these comparison images for a closer look.

Darksiders II has also had its gameplay systems tweaked somewhat for the new release, as the game's balancing and loot distribution mechanics have been "reworked and tuned."

Deathinitive Edition DLC includes: (Maker Armor Set, The Abyssal Forge, The Demon Lord Belial, Death Rides, Angel of Death, Deadly Despair, Shadow of Death, Mortis Pack, Rusanov's Axe, Van Der Schmash Hammer, Fletcher's Crow Hammer, Mace Maximus, Argul's Tomb.

The game will sell for $30.

Leading development on the Deathinitive Edition is Gunfire Games. This studio is staffed almost entirely by people who worked on the Darksiders franchise at creator Vigil Games before its closure.

Looking ahead, Nordic Games--which acquired the Darksiders franchise from THQ when the company went bankrupt--has said it has plans for a third game in the series.
