Nordic and Gunfire Games have released a new set of screenshots for Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition that show off the game’s upgraded visuals.
You can clearly see the game has received a resolution bump to 1080p, along with some smoother textures and better lighting. It’ll be interesting to see how much better the game looks in action.
John Pearl of Gunfire Games talked about the visual upgrade in a press release saying, “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.”
