Darksiders 360 Screen-Tearing Fix in the Works

By Alice O'Connor, Jan 08, 2010 9:00am PST Vigil's post-Apocalyptic action adventure Darksiders is soon to receive a patch to fix screen-tearing in the Xbox 360 version, creative director Joe Madureira has told IGN.

"It's something that's really not a difficult fix for us and so we're going to implement a patch to resolve the problem. We're fairly certain it'll happen really soon so look out for it."

Screen-tearing occurs when more than one frame is shown on the screen at the same time, split unattractively by horizontal seams, as Wikipedia helpfully illustrates. The PlayStation 3 edition is reportedly also affected by tearing but to a far lesser extent.

Darksiders was released earlier this week for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 to good reviews, though some rated the 360 edition lower for issues such as the tearing.
