New, 18 comments

Darksiders 2 finally has a release date for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The upgraded Deathinitive Edition of the game hits the two consoles on Oct. 27 for $29.99, Nordic Games announced this morning.

"It's rare that as developers we get the opportunity to revisit one of our previous games," John Pearl, design director at Gunfire Games said in a prepared statement. "The passage of time and the numerous games we've worked on since Darksiders 2 shipped has allowed us to return to it with a fresh perspective.

"We started by revisiting every asset in the game"

"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 2 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."

The upgraded Deathinitive Edition of the game includes all of the original downloadable content (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, Argul's Tomb) and runs in native 1080p resolution.
