Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition has officially been revealed for a Winter release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game is a remaster of the excellent Darksiders 2 from 2012, which was released on PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U.
“The Deathinitive Edition will be a visually updated version of Darksiders 2, including all DLCs, and running in native 1080p resolution,” says the latest press release. “In addition to the graphic upgrade, adjustments to the game balancing and loot distribution have been made. The entire project is in the experienced hands of Gunfire Games, where nearly all staffers have already been working at Vigil Games and on Darksiders in the past.”
The team decided to do a remaster in order to “take care of the existing games and make those available to a broader audience” according to Reinhard Pollice, Business & Product Development Director at Nordic Games. Nordic took over the Darksiders franchise after the demise of former publisher THQ.
Nordic seems to be preparing to launch original projects in the series, such as a possible Darksiders 3, with Pollice saying, “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.”
