Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition will come with extensive graphical improvements.
When Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition releases this year, it will bring more than all the released DLC and upgraded output resolutions. Gunfire Games, the studio working on the port, explained what we can expect.
“When we thought about what we wanted to do for the “Deathinitive” edition of Darksiders 2, obviously we wanted to run in native 1080p and increase the resolution of the textures. Additionally, we decided to rewrite the renderer to be physically based like a lot of other current generation game engines.
“What this means visually is metal, leather, stone and skin look and respond to light as you would expect them to in the real world. This new rendering method meant we revisited every texture and surface in the game, reworking and re-authoring them for the new renderer. To take full advantage of these texture changes, we’ve also gone back and relit the entire game.”
