Publisher Nordic Games has announced in a new press release that Darksiders: Warmastered Edition will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, and PC on October 25, 2016 for $19.99.
Development of the project has been given to KAIKO, who you may remember for their work on last year’s Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition .
In addition to the release date and price confirmation, Nordic Games also revealed the following information:
- The PC version will feature 4K resolution and “additional video options.”
- Will feature native 1080p rendering resolution across all versions and 60fps gameplay across all versions as well (minus the Wii U — which will run at 30fps — poor Wii U).
- Graphical enhancements such as texture resolutions (double what they were in the original), and better shadow rendering quality, and post-processing effects.
Darksiders originally released in 2010. Upon release it garnered a 83 on Metacritic.
I have no desire to revisit this franchise — but if I do, it will be on the console it’s meant to be played on…the Wii U…..
