Game release: “Darksiders: Warmastered Edition” (PC,PS4,Xbox One)

It was only a matter of time after the Darksiders II – Definitive Edition upgrade that Vigil Games’ original action-adventure would receive the same treatment from KAIKO with courtesy of THQ Nordic.

Playing as one of the Apocalypse riders, namely Death, who is betrayed into bringing the end of the world and a battle between Heaven and Hell is certainly no easy task, and being stripped from all powers sounds familiar to anyone who has played the Zelda or Metroid games. While visceral combat is more in line with God of War, everything else feels like these action-adventures, i.e. unlocking areas with certain abilities one first has to find usually involving epic battles with huge bosses. Not very original, but still very impressive to look at, especially with the new edition’s features.

There’s a huge graphical upgrade to the game with support for up to 4K resolution, the double amount of texture resolutions, high-quality re-rendered cutscenes, reworked and improved rendering, including shadows, post processing effects, an optimized frame rate, and other graphic options.

If you already own the digital version, the update is completely free, something that seems unheard of in this age of often expensive remasters. It also includes the original game for those curious to know how they compare in graphical fidelity. Of course you can also opt for the retail console versions as well.
