Darksiders Warmastered Edition Targeting 60fps On PS4 And Xbox One, Engine Updates Revealed
Also PC version will largely remain the same.
THQ Nordic are working on reviving themselves, the THQ brand, a significant portion of THQ properties, which they hold- and one of the first fruits of this initiative will be the upcoming Darksiders Warmastered Edition, which is set to launch on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Wii U soon.
GamingBolt recently had the chance to talk to Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director at THQ Nordic, and we decided to ask him some questions about the remaster. Speaking about the updates to the game engine, and the improvements to the game’s graphics, Pollice said, “so actually the whole backend renderer was replaced. We have done a lot of reworks to the shadow quality by increasing the resolution by 4 times and using different methods to make it look better. We have also added some nice post processing effects like chromatic aberration, sharpen and FXAA but we know that they are a matter of taste so users can switch them off – even on the console versions. Overall we increased all texture resolutions by 4 or at least 2 times.”
He also confirmed tat the game would run at 1080p and 60fps on Xbox One and PS4, both- and that parity would even be generally mentioned across those two versions and the PC version in general, barring some extra options on PC.”[1080p and 60fps is] our goal. We are still working hard to optimize it to the max,” he said.”[The PC version] will have some more options but pretty basic stuff- other than that it’s the same.”
So it sounds like no matter what platform you own, you can expect a good remaster of Darksiders with Darksiders Warmastered.
