Featuring high res textures and sharpened up lighting effects, the Darksiders: Warmastered Edition… you know what, it doesn’t look all that great really.  The update has mostly served to highlight the imperfections in the original visuals. But it’s hard to deny that they look damned nice all the same. Sharp enough to cut the beard off of Chuck Norris.

Check it out in the trailer above, you can see for yourself. It’s remained very much a game of its time, with tastes having simply moved on over the years. However, that doesn’t change the fact that the updates 4k (for both PC a PlayStation 4 Pro) are technically damned impressive.

Console players will get a 7 day head start in playing the “remastered” Darksiders before us PC gamers, making us wait for its release on Steam come November 29th.

About Darksiders:

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.

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.

  • Extreme Arsenal – Wield a devastating arsenal of angelic, demonic and Earthly weapons; and blaze a trail of destruction atop Ruin, War’s fiery phantom steed
  • Epic Quest – Battle across the wastelands and demon-infested dungeons of the decimated Earth in your quest for vengeance and redemption
  • Character Progression – Uncover powerful ancient relics, upgrade your weapons, unlock new abilities, and customize your gameplay style
