Earlier this week, a remastered version of the original Darksiders game, known as Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, leaked online. Nordic Games has since confirmed the game’s existence, announcing that Darksiders: Warmastered Edition will release for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U on October 25th with a number of improvements.
Most of the improvements are focused on the game’s visual presentation. Darksiders: Warmastered Edition will run at 1080p/60 frames per second on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and 30 frames per second on Wii U. Whereas the Wii U version is somewhat lesser than the other versions of the game, the PC release will actually be superior, allowing for 4K resolution and more video options on top of the other enhancements.
Otherwise, all versions of Darksiders: Warmastered Edition will enjoy improved textures, better rendering and shadows, and new post processing effects. Overall, these upgrades should make for a significantly better looking take on the original Darksiders adventure, though there doesn’t appear to be any new gameplay content or features in this remaster.
Even though Darksiders: Warmastered Edition doesn’t have anything in the way of new gameplay experiences, veterans of the original may still be tempted to pick it up due to its low price. Darksiders: Warmastered Edition will be available for just $20, making it one of the cheapest current-gen remasters that we’ve seen to date.
