‘Darksiders Warmastered Edition’ Brings Zelda-alike to Current Systems

Do you love The Legend of Zelda but can’t stand waiting for the release of Breath of the Wild? Do you wish there was a new (or at least slightly updated) Zelda-like game coming to current-gen consoles in 2016? Then look no further than Darksiders Warmastered Edition, the visually upgraded remake of the underrated THQ release from 2010. Take your first look at the new/old Darksiders in the first screens.

In case you missed it when it was new, the first Darksiders is an ambitious initial outing for developer Volition, and it was built around two concepts: A deep love for Nintendo’s Zelda franchise and comic superstar/creative director Joe Madureira‘s art style. The final game was this lovely adventure laid out similar to Ocarina of Time, but with an aesthetic more like God of War or an ’80s heavy metal album. It worked splendidly for telling the story of the Horseman of War investigating the end of the world across a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

The game was a modest success, but Darksiders and its sequel didn’t do well enough to save publisher THQ from closure. Now owned by publisher Nordic Games, this is the second remake of the Darksiders series and is accompanied by rumors that Darksidres 3 isn’t far away. This remaster (or “Warmaster”) brings Darksiders to new consoles like Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U. Included along with the original game are graphical improvements like up to 4K resolution, 60fps gameplay, and improved textures.

Darksiders Warmastered Edition will hit stores and online Oct. 25.
