Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition Roars Onto PS4 And Xbox One Later This Month

Nordic and Gunfire Games have announced that Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition will be releasing on October 27. The digital and physical editions of the remastered game will each feature a $29.99 price point.

In addition to making Darksiders II look better by remastering the original assets and art, the developers have taken extra care to make all of the downloadable content for the base game, which is included in this version, fit better into the experience. "Darksiders II has a lot of DLC in the form of weapons, armor and unique locations," Gunfire Games design director John Pearl says. "These pieces of DLC which felt separate from the main campaign have now been integrated into the game and rebalanced accordingly."

The Deathinitive Edition will also feature a rebalanced base game, as well as added polish with regards to bugs that were found in the original. Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition also runs at native 1080p resolution. If you'd like to see the game in action, Gunfire Games is holding a live stream on its Twitch channel today at 3 p.m. Eastern.


Our Take
As someone who always wanted to try the Darksiders franchise, but never got around to it, this sure sounds like an appealing package. The price sounds right, and with actual updates to the way the game plays, this seems like it could shape up to be a good example of how remastered releases should be done. Now, I just have to hope I have time to play it between Halo 5: Guardians and Fallout 4/Rise of the Tomb Raider.
