Remember earlier this week when it sounded like the first Darksiders game was going to be coming to current consoles? Well, it turns out that that’s true, as today, Nordic Games announced the remaster’s existence.
The original game told the story of War, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse who ended up starting it…just way ahead of schedule. Oops. To prove his innocence, the Red Rider travels back to the destroyed Earth to find those responsible and ends up uncovering a conspiracy between angels and demons.
Darksiders Warmastered Edition (yes, that’s what it’s called, and it makes no sense) will have native 1080p rendering resolution, along with rendering improvements and better shadow rendering quality. For the PS4, PC, and Xbox One, it’ll run at 60 FPS, while the Wii U version will run at 30 FPS. You can expect it “soon”, as the website cryptically says.
With this and the sequel now on current consoles, you’ve got yourself a fun pair of action games to play during the summer drought. Happy demon slaying!
