Darksiders 3 finally releases into the wild on November 27, and we couldn't be happier. However, ahead of that release THQ Nordic has revealed that Gunfire Games has also been working on updating both Darksiders: Warmastered Edition and Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition, to take full advantage of Xbox One X.
Beginning today, gamers who pre-order Darksiders III: Blades & Whip Edition from the Microsoft Store will be able to download and play the enhanced Darksiders: Warmastered Edition. The enhanced version of Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition will be available later this month, enabling players to enjoy both games in 4K before beginning their journey into Darksiders III on November 27!
The comprehensive Darksiders III pre-order campaign is ongoing and promises major rewards for Darksiders fans who have patiently waited more than six years for the release of Darksiders III. Pre-order here: Darksiders III Pre-Order.
If you're not across Darksiders III -- a game that very nearly didn't see the light of day once the original THQ's demise kicked in, here's some light reading for you:
Players return to an apocalyptic planet Earth in Darksiders III, a hack-n-slash action-adventure where players take on the role of FURY in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins. The Charred Council calls upon FURY to battle from the heights of heaven down through the depths of hell in a quest to restore the balance between good and evil and prove that she is the fiercest of the FOUR HORSEMEN. FURY is a mage, her form evolving throughout gameplay and with it, her powers and weaponry. The expansive Darksiders III game world is presented as an open-ended, living, free-form planet Earth, dilapidated by war and decay, and overrun by nature. FURY will traverse back and forth between environments, battling other-worldly creatures and unlocking puzzles while advancing the Darksiders story. Scheduled to release worldwide November 27, 2018 for PC, PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system and the Xbox® One family of devices, including Xbox One X.
