Ahh Darksiders 2 such a great game, a sleeper hit if you will. Darksiders 2 launched on last generation consoles a while back, and arrived on the Wii U as a launch title, it is an amazing game that on the surface does not look so appealing at least that is how I see it. The game merged ideas from other franchises such as Prince of Persia style climbing system and Legend of Zelda style exploration it was an interesting blend that worked well across the entire game. Now for those who missed this gem on the Wii U, Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 then you can get excited as Death rides for the Playstation 4 and Xbox one as Darksiders 2 has been officially confirmed to arrive on these platforms this holiday season.
This newest version of the game title Darksiders 2 Deathinitive edition (a pretty clever name) comes equipped with every piece of downloadable content that was previously released for the game. This includes The 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, and lastly, Argul’s Tomb.
Along with the Downloadable content, this version of the game will run at 1080p and will feature many other graphical upgrades thanks in turn to a new and improved Graphics Render Engine, along with rebalanced gameplay and loot distribution.
The port of the game is being handled by Gunfire Games, though Nordic Games who own the rights to the franchise has kept a watchful eye on the port. Nordic Games purchased the rights to the franchise after original owner THQ closed down.
Nordic Games’ Reinhard Pollice had this to say:
“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.”
“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.”
Look forward to more from Darksiders 2 soon.
