Releasing the Darksiders Warmastered Hordes…Sort Of

Darksiders: Warmastered Edition is now available on consoles. Though, sadly, we have to wait an extra week for the PC release on the 29th.

It’s not all bad though, we have the extended version of the trailer that showed off the 4K assets a few days ago. My earlier comments about it still stand, the game has certainly aged. The lack of detail on things like cloth are especially noticeable. But at the same time, it’s a testament to the quality of work this game has had, that it looked so darn good, both at the time of its release in 2010, and now.

Those assets are razor sharp and crisply shaded no doubt, and the art style is as compelling now as it always has been, the art team behind the series knew what they were doing. If only it was a true remastering with all the bells and whistles of today’s games with actual 4k textures on top, wouldn’t be a single thing to complain about then. At least the console gamers have something to  brag about, if only for a week that is, well.. except those Wii U players, they have a longer wait ahead of them.
