When we made the move to the next generation of gaming, it was obvious that a whole host of developers and publishers would ensure that their game would be shown in the best of light through the new power of console. We’ve had a ton of titles make the move to work in Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 optimisation in that time, with the latest being that of DARQ.
Having previously launched on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch, DARQ now makes the move to the next-gen consoles with full optimised goodies for both Xbox Series X|S and PS5 present.
Available now from the usual Xbox Store or PlayStation Store (with retail editions of the game arriving on PS4, PS5 and Switch later in the year), DARQ Complete Edition will set you back £15.49, with previous old-gen versions automagically upgrading to the new Complete option.
And should you fall into the mysteries of DARQ, will discover once more a tale that takes you through the dreams of Lloyd – dreams that very fast become a bit of a nightmare. From there it’ll be up to you to solve puzzles, sneak past creatures and take in all the corners of the DARQ-ness.
However, with the move to the next-gen Complete Edition you don’t just get access to the base game. Xbox Series X|S and PS5 players will also discover cinematic and performance options, letting you take DARQ at 4K and 30FPS in Cinematic, or a Performance mode that focuses on 1800p and 60FPS. The PS5 edition will make the most of DualSense haptics too.
No matter what format you are playing DARQ Complete Edition on though, you’ll also have access to The Tower DLC and The Crypt DLC, both of which will bring additional puzzles and nightmares for you to, um, enjoy!
- The Tower DLC – Lloyd wakes up in his dreams again only to find himself in a Tower filled with many new mysteries, puzzles, and creepy creatures
- The Crypt DLC – Another loop of nightmares continues, introducing new mechanics and puzzles in a crypt filled with dark surprises
Let us know if the move to Series X|S and PS5 optimisation is what you were wanting from DARQ. We’ll have a full review of DARQ Complete Edition on Xbox Series X|S coming your way soon. It should follow our thoughts of the older Xbox One version nicely.
DARQ will take you on a journey through Lloyd’s dreams that quickly turn into a loop of nightmares. The boy’s main priority is to wake up, but unfortunately, each attempt sinks him deeper into his lucid subconscious-driven dreams. Lloyd has to adapt to the new world, re-learn gravity, strain all of his senses and mind in order to solve puzzles and sneak past the creatures guarding the corners of DARQ.
