Nordic Games has released some images which show off the graphical differences between the original Darksiders II and the forthcoming Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition which sees the series hit the PS4 and Xbox One next year. Take a look at our Darksiders II vs Deathinitive Edition comparison video featuring the images in sequence.
Design Director John Pearl had this to say about the game:
“When we thought about what we wanted to do for the “Deathinitive” edition of Darksiders II, 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.”
