Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition releases on the 27th of October on PS4 and Xbox One, Nordic Games has announced.
The remastered version of Darksiders 2 will feature higher visual quality in terms of lighting and shadows, improved and reworked level, character and environment graphics, and reworked and tuned game balancing and loot distribution. It will also include all the DLC released for the game, which adds approximately 30 hours of playtime.
"It's rare that as developers we get the opportunity to revisit one of our previous games. 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," said John Pearl, the game's design director.
"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: Deathinitive Edition will be priced at $29.99/â‚¬29.99
