Who loved Darksiders II? You all did? Well, guess what? Nordic Games have today announced that Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition is coming to Xbox One, both digitally and in stores, this October.

The Deathinitive Edition will be a graphically updated version of the original game and will include all DLCs, (Maker Armor Set, The Abyssal Forge, The Demon Lord Belial, Death Rides, Angel of Death, Deadly Despair, Shadow of Death, Mortis Pack, Rusanov’s Axe, Van Der Schmash Hammer, Fletcher’s Crow Hammer, Mace Maximus and Argul’s Tomb), and running on the Xbox One in stunning native 1080p resolution.

As if that wasn’t enough, the game balancing and loot distribution tweaks have been made. The entire project is in the experienced hands of Gunfire Games, where nearly all the staff had worked on previous Darksiders titles being part of Vigil Games.

Play as Death once more, the most feared of the Four Horsemen, able to destroy worlds and battle forces beyond Heaven and Hell and take advantage of the improved and reworked level, character and environment graphics.

Gunfire Games’ Design Director, John Pearl;

It’s rare that as developers, we get the opportunity to revisit one of our previous games. The passage of time and the numerous games we’ve worked on since Darksiders II shipped has allowed us to return to it with a fresh perspective. With that said, we went back to what is a huge game and addressed things we didn’t have time for or didn’t notice the first time. We started by revisiting every asset in the game, increasing the texture resolutions and brought the art up to spec to take full advantage of the new lighting and rendering. Darksiders II has a lot of DLC in the form of weapons, armour and unique locations. These pieces of DLC which felt separate from the main campaign have now been integrated into the game and rebalanced accordingly. Lastly, we’ve addressed much of the feedback we received after the game’s release in regards to balance and bugs. With all these changes, this is truly the Definitive Edition of Darksiders II.

Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition will see a worldwide release on the 27th of October.
