The Horsemen look set to reunite once more after Nordic Games today confirmed the existence of Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition for PlayStation 4.
Earlier this year, Amazon seemingly outed the remaster when it listed the HD remake for a release on Sony’s platform later this year. Now, three months later, the publisher has confirmed this retail post to be true, though remained curiously quiet about a potential Xbox One version at the time of writing.
If the grammar Nazi inside you is cringing at the atypical title, fear not; in Darksiders II, players take control of Death, one of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Well, we didn’t say it was a very clever moniker now did we?
Nonetheless, according to the original post, the Deathinitive Edition will be made available for $40, and there’s little information about a release date other than the fact that Nordic has ensured it will hit the market before December 31, 2015.
Acting as one of the final releases for now-defunct publisher THQ, Nordic’s RPG sequel was met with overly positive reviews from critics and fans alike in 2012, though less-than-stellar sales figures meant that a third entry in the dark fantasy series was always going to be unlikely. The result? A HD release to gauge whether the IP is still considered to be popular and maybe, just maybe, paving the way for a new installment under Nordic Games.
We’ll have more information relating to Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition closer to release and, crucially, whether the revamped version will arrive for Xbox One.
