Darksiders 360 tearing patch "really soon"

Problem doesn't impact PS3 version.

Vigil plans to patch the Xbox 360 version of Darksiders as soon as possible to reduce the amount of screen tearing.

"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," Madureira told IGN.

"We're fairly certain it'll happen really soon so look out for it."

Eurogamer understands that the screen-tear, which is reportedly much less frequent in the PS3 version, is a specific issue that only popped up late in the development process and didn't actually affect earlier Xbox 360 builds.

Darksiders is due out for PS3 and Xbox 360 in Europe today, assuming you can actually get out of your house to go and buy it. Check out our Darksiders review for more on the game.
