Nordic Games has announced during Gamepolis 2016 that apocalyptic combat title Darksiders will be remastered for current generation consoles Xbox One, PS4, and Wii U. The Darksiders remaster will be released both digitally and physically sometime towards the end of the year. While no official release date has been confirmed, the studio is expected to be targeting a fourth quarter release. Newegg already has the remaster listed on its site with a release date of October 25th for $19.99.
No other information was given as far as any improvements the new remaster will have over the original version, but more info is expected as we get closer to the alleged release date. There’s also talk of the game being brought to PC, and with Microsoft’s “Play Anywhere”, this idea may not be too far-fetched. For those who aren’t familiar with the title, you can read a brief game description below.
Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of the world, War – the first Horseman of the Apocalypse – stands accused of breaking the sacred law by inciting a war between Heaven and Hell. In the slaughter that ensued, the demonic forces defeated the heavenly hosts and laid claim to the Earth.
Brought before the sacred Charred Council, War is indicted for his crimes and stripped of his powers. Dishonored and facing his own death, War is given the opportunity to return to Earth to search for the truth and punish those responsible.
Hunted by a vengeful group of Angels, War must take on the forces of Hell, forge uneasy alliances with the very demons he hunts, and journey across the ravaged remains of the Earth on his quest for vengeance and vindication.
