New comparison screenshots have been revealed for Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition to showcase the updated graphics.
John Pearl, Design Director at Gunfire Games, had this to say about it “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.”
Alongside the updated visuals, the Deathinitive Edition of Darksiders 2 also includes rebalanced gameplay and integrated DLC.
