Earlier this week, an Amazon game listing went up that showed the Darksiders II: Definitive Edition for the Playstation 4. Since this remastered edition hadn't been announced yet, the listing stirred up quite the commotion in the gaming community and after a short while, was taken down. Fortunately, someone was able to grab a screenshot of the listing before it was taken down. The picture clearly shows the Darksiders II: Definitive Edition for the Playstation 4 coming in at the price of $40 with a December 31, 2015 release date, which is most likely a place holder. Darksiders II: Definitive Edition publisher Nordic Games hadn't said anything about the listing up until this point. Nordic games has now confirmed that the Darksiders II: Definitive Edition for the Playstation 4 is in development but unfortunately, didn't say anything about the possibility of the remastered edition coming to the Xbox One.
For those of you who aren't familiar with the franchise, Darksiders and Darksiders II are both action role-playing games in which you control one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse as your main protagonist. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were given god-like abilities after the rest of their kind were killed off. In Darksiders you play as War, one of the Four Horsemen and you engage in a variety of puzzles, spend some time in combat and explore the map in an attempt to regain all of your abilities and powers. In Darksiders II, you play as Death, another one of the Four Horsemen. To avoid any potential spoilers I won't go in depth about the Darksiders II storyline. Both of these games are played in a third-person camera angle since there is a lot of hack and slash combat in both games. Both games were developed by Vigil Games and published by THQ before THQ went bankrupt in early 2013. Darksiders II: Definitive Edition is set to be published by Nordic Games.
As of now, the game has only been confirmed for the Playstation 4. No news has been given on whether we will be seeing the remastered version on the Xbox One. When Nordic Games was contacted about the Amazon listing, they responded with this.
“Whilst the authenticity of said listing is unquestionable, I am afraid I cannot comment on further details other than in the poetic words of Marshawn Lynch”
Although that was quite the comical response, it still leaves us with little to no information about the game. We do however expect some more information to be given to us at a later point in time. What do you think of all this? Will you be buying the Darksiders II: Definitive Edition? Leave your thoughts below.
