I had the Darksiders 2 basic edition from years on my steam account, and when deathinitive edition comes out i had a discount on steam so i got the game there.
Sadly the patch that you are talking about is only a beta patch and there are some big bugs still in the game.
Even this patch provide some new nasy bugs.
Nordic Games told for a lot of time after the releasing of this patch on steam forum that they are still working in bugfixing DS2 deathinit.
but after one or two months they disappeared totally from the steam forum and a whole year it's gone after that.
Lot of people continue to ask support for different issues and they haven't any reply.
To be precise it's been announced a new edition of Darksiders1 in hd but this game is prepared by a different team than the one that was trying to fix ds2 Deathinit.
One of the programmer on twitter told to people asking that Nordic was actually working even now to bring this beta patch to a final version, but after a year no one believe this lie.
The only thing that i suggest you is to go to the steam forum, read about this matter, and stop buying this s**tty game from this s**tty producer (Nordic Games) and please don't buy the new edition of Darksiders 1 when will be released.
i think that a game like that with some sh****y support and impolite and incorrect behaviour from the producer Nordic should be retired from steam and gog, like it was retired the last Batman game, then it was fixed and then it was again uploaded on steam after 6 months.
if you are curious, in ds2deathinit. still remain 3 major bugs, serious shuttering problems, and vsync totally screwed up function. And here in Gog the pad problem.
Some people fix one or two of this bugs disabling the damage counter, forcing vsync externally (like from the nvidia panel) and disabling it from the options game, but this ins't working with all the configuration and all the graphic drivers.
Basically the game present the same bugs than the original DS2. The worst one is the shuttering and the vsync broken.
Nordic programmers aren't good at programming.
I'm not an angry player, all the steam DS2 community is enraged against Nordic Games to have commercialized a broken product and for the lack of comunication for a whole year and his silence with all the request of support from the final users.
Like you can see you are receiving here the same beta patch released on steam november 18th 2015 after a year XDXDXD Incredible Nordc Games!
I would have gladly paid for the normal version, if it was avaiable, but sadly, it is not. Usually I never buy something on a whim but, since the game was discounted at an insane price (2€), I just bought it nearly one year ago. Kinda disappointed as this game is really good, and generally a great addition to the gog store.
