Even though Nintendo is turning its full attention to the Nintendo Switch system, there are some developers that are still making games for the Wii U – and one of its final “big” titles has just arrived.
THQ Nordic has announced today that Darksiders: Warmastered Edition has finally arrived for the system, in both digital and physical format. The game is available for $19.99, and provides plenty of hard-hitting action for fans of the series, running at a beautiful 30 frames per second and featuring unrelenting excitement revolving around the Horseman of the Apocalypse, War.
“Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of the world, War – the first Horseman of the Apocalypse – stands accused of breaking the sacred law by inciting a war between Heaven and Hell. In the slaughter that ensued, the demonic forces defeated the heavenly hosts and laid claim to the Earth,” the company described in the game’s press release.
Darksiders comes with the following features:
- Apocalyptic Power – Unleash the wrath of War, combining brutal attacks and supernatural abilities to decimate all who stand in your way
- Extreme Arsenal – Wield a devastating arsenal of angelic, demonic and Earthly weapons; and blaze a trail of destruction atop Ruin, War’s fiery phantom steed
- Epic Quest – Battle across the wastelands and demon-infested dungeons of the decimated Earth in your quest for vengeance and redemption
- Character Progression – Uncover powerful ancient relics, upgrade your weapons, unlock new abilities, and customize your gameplay style
- Battle Heaven and Hell – Battle against all who stand in your way - from war-weary angelic forces to Hell’s hideous demon hordes
The game initially released last year for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, where it received huge praise from fans – as well as us, as you can see in our review. It certainly is a great game, and one that complements the previously released Darksiders II port for Wii U.
If you’ve still got that system in your collection, and want to round it out with a great tour-de-force in action, Darksiders is definitely a go-to choice. You can get it now for Wii U, as well as Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
