It’s been remastered – or Warmastered if you believe the PR speak – comes complete with enhanced visuals, double the texture resolution and enough shadow rendering to worry the best of them. Yep, it’s Darksiders Warmastered Edition!
Available right now on Xbox One and PS4, with both PC and Wii U versions dropping a little later, Darksiders Warmastered once again tells the story of War, the very first Horseman of the Apocalypse as he stands accused of breaking sacred law, creating war between Heaven and Hell. Now though War and his trusty stead Ruin have been hit with the remastering brush, ensuring they look and feel better than ever before.
Of course, you should now be making your way over to the Xbox Games Store in order to pick it up. If you want to see your Darksiders experience go even deeper, then perhaps you should be also checking out the one-of-a-kind collector’s edition which brings a rather neat addition. ‘The Scalding Gallow’ horse stable is a unique mobile unit measuring 10.8 x 3.6m, includes a tack room with floor, a 3m x 3.6m haybarn and two 3m x 3.6 stables that can house two phantom horses (sold separately), whilst the outside of the unit is emblazoned with Darksiders artwork and logos.
Darksiders Warmastered Edition ‘The Scalding Gallow’ edition is available exclusively through Green Man Gaming for one UK-based customer, at the devilish sum of £66,600, and includes the game on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Wii U as well as the respective consoles, i.e. the PlayStation 4 Pro, the Xbox One S, the Nintendo Wii U, and an Alienware Area-51 top-of-the-line gaming PC rig.
We reckon we’ll be sticking to the standard edition though. Our budget doesn’t quite stretch to 66 grand!
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.
