Darksiders is finally getting a remastered edition, according to a new entry over at Nordic Games’ website. Officially titled Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, it is a remaster of the first Darksiders game that was originally launched on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC back in 2010. While a release date has not been announced as of this writing, it will be launching on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Wii U “soon”, according to their website. The full details of Darksiders: Warmastered Edition can be found below:
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.
