THQ’s Mathew Everett has responded to complaints about Darksiders II’s lack of PC-friendly features. The publisher representative told the Darksiders community that both he and Vigil’s Jay Fitzloff genuinely believed the game would contain full .config files and proper mouse and keyboard support when these features were promised during a pre-launch preview event.
“Unfortunately, especially at the end of the development cycle, sometimes things change at the last minute, and this was one of them. This puts us in an uncomfortable spot as we were acting on the best information we had at the time, and it has turned out not to be in the final game (at this point). Since it was always the intention to implement these features, as I type this, the development team is checking to see what items can get added into the game. While I can’t promise what can be done, I can promise we are working with the proper teams and have expressed the importance of including them in a patch,” he said.
Everett has apologised for giving inaccurate information, describing it as an unintentional error. “We are doing everything we can to address it. We will circle back when we have more information,” he promised.
Our Darksiders II review made particular note of the PC release’s lack of platform-specific features.
