The SNEG team has released a free HD Update for the pre-Dark Souls fantasy action-adventure game, Blade of Darkness. This free update will improve the game’s graphics by using higher-quality textures and some new graphical effects.
Developed by Rebel Act Studios, Blade of Darkness is a classic PC game that is often described as the ancestor of the Souls games. The game originally came out on PC in 2001, and featured spectacular graphics.
This free HD Update upscales all textures and reworks the camera with the ability to freely look around outside of the combat. Furthermore, it improves Anti-aliasing, HDR, Bloom, SSAO, and Motion Blur. Players can also expect better controller support.
As always, Steam will download this free update the next time you launch its client. That is, obviously, if you already own the game. Below you can also find a new trailer for it.
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
