Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition arrives this month for PS4, Xbox One

Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition will arrive for current-gen consoles ahead of Halloween, publisher Nordic Games has announced.

Gunfire Games – founded by Darksiders creator David Adams – is developing, with many members of the original team putting their handprints on the upcoming release.

"It’s rare that as developers we get the opportunity to revisit one of our previous games,"Gunfire Games design director John Pearl said. "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.

"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."

Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition will launch October 27th for PS4 and Xbox One. The standard Darksiders II release is available on PC, PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360.
