If you haven’t played the criminally underrated Darksiders , now you can! (In glorious 1080p, no less.) Here’s the badass description of the Warmastered Edition, courtesy of Nordic Games:
“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.
- Apocalyptic Power – Unleash the wrath of War, combining brutal attacks and
supernatural abilities to decimate all who stand in your way
- Extreme Arsenal – Wield a devastating arsenal of angelic, demonic and Earthly
weapons; and blaze a trail of destruction atop Ruin, War’s fiery phantom steed
- Epic Quest – Battle across the wastelands and demon-infested dungeons of the
decimated Earth in your quest for vengeance and redemption
- Character Progression – Uncover powerful ancient relics, upgrade your weapons,
unlock new abilities, and customize your gameplay style
- Battle Heaven and Hell – Battle against all who stand in your way – from war-weary angelic forces to Hell’s hideous demon hordes”
If that doesn’t make you want to play this game yet, I don’t know what will. Oh wait, maybe the fact that this glorious edition will only cost $19.99?! GET ON IT!
The Warmastered Edition features the first Darksiders game, rendering improvements, double the texture resolutions, and 4k support for the PC version.
You can purchase Darksiders Warmastered Edition on October 25, 2016, and it’s available for PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, and PC.
