While we will have out review out later this week for Darksiders 2: The Deathinitive Edtion, a posting on the Steam forums tells us that this remaster was to gauge interest in the franchise again and see where the best option to go was.
Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition was just the start. Since we acquired the franchise we were looking for options for doing a DS3. The remaster was just a way to get some spotlight on the franchise again, reactivate the community and have a better starting position for DS3.
While the port has no new content, the game is still fun to play and features some cool worlds to explore.
