Darksiders: Warmastered Edition artwork showing off War

After being slightly delayed back in October, the new and improved Darksiders: Warmastered Edition is now available on the PS4 and Xbox One. As for the PC version, its slated to arrive next week, or to be more specific - November 29.

If you're interested in seeing what improvements THQ Nordic has managed to make in terms of graphics and effects, here's the recently posted trailer showcasing mostly console footage. As before, the trailer with PC gameplay will most likely arrive at some point next week, but even so, this one should give you a general idea of what to expect from the remastered Darksiders. Have a look:

So what exactly does this Warmastered Edition even bring to the table? Well, its mostly just graphical improvements and general bugfixing. Most notably, the Warmastered Edition fully supports 1080p and larger resolutions, the textures have been greatly increased and are no longer as muddy, and the rendering itself has been reworked in order to provide a much cleaner image. Add to that better shadows, post processing effects, and a framerate that's supposedly never going to drop below 60 FPS, and you've got yourself a rather pretty version of a rather old game.

I haven't had the chance to play it myself, mostly because I don't own any of the consoles, but from what I've read online it does appear that this is one quality remaster. It is basically the original Darksiders in all of its glory, just with better graphics and less annoying little bugs and glitches to worry about. So if that sounds like something you might be interested in, perhaps you should give the Warmastered Edition a look.
