The Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition was originally scheduled to be released on October 6, but you might have noticed that the game didn’t launch as planned since today’s the sixth and the game is currently absent from stores shelves. Thankfully, a new release date is just around the corner…
Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition will be released for both the PS4 and Xbox One on October 27. The remake will feature enhanced graphics, rebalanced gameplay, and all downloadable content previously released for the game.
“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, a Design Director at Gunfire Games. “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.”
Even with all these updates, don’t expect the Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition to break the bank. Nordic Games has confirmed the remake will be priced at $29.99 on both platforms.
