Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, a re-release of the original Darksiders video game, is now available to buy, download, and play on Microsoft’s Xbox One console.
The game features all of the content from the original but has also received significant upgrades to bring it up to snuff for current video game consoles. Darksiders: Warmastered Edition boasts native 1080p resolution, 4k support, textures with double the resolution of the originals, rendering improvements, better shadow rendering quality, post processing effects, and 60 FPS in moment to moment gameplay. Here’s the official game description:
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.
