Change controller prompts to PS4 or Xbox one
I tried this myself and it works flawlessly, The devs left all the files for the button prompts for various consoles.

Simply find the files under:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Darksiders Warmastered Edition\media

Rename the one you want to ui_buttons_xbox.oppc

So if you want PS4 prompts rename "ui_buttons_ps4.oppc" to "ui_buttons_xbox.oppc" or "ui_buttons_xbone.oppc" to "ui_buttons_xbox.oppc" for Xbox one controller prompts

You can go ahead if you like, just credit me.

For PS4 controller prompts you should just use a plain PS4 controller on the game, it is natively supported. Will show the prompts right away.
Unfortunately, Xbox one controller has this automatic XInput mode where it just reports itself as XB360 controller so no chance for the game to select better prompts...

Well, I didn't know about the Native support for PS4, as I don't have one... but the switching works fine either way for Xbox.

Just to add to the dicussion, switching does work but for some reason during the tutorial when it's telling like "Press X to Attack" the prompt shown in the text is incorrect or just shows like "%L1% + %R2%" for whatever reason.

Not a big deal since you can just figure out the controls yourself. I did this method since I'm using the Steam Client BETA which has DS4 Support now (Emulates as a Steam Controller) and as such the game reads my DS4 as a Xbox Controller but I wanted DS4 Prompts.

So - the game can't access the DS4 controller directly with the new DS4 support in Steam client ? Thats a shame, really. I actually feared it would be like that with DS4 support in steam controller api that was announced, completely breaking native support :(

I will have a look with the Beta client, hopefully there is a way around that. Great to have a wrapper if you need one but not great at all if you can't get rid of it...

The way the Steam Client BETA is setup now, the moment you open up steam it hooks into the controller. (I don't have auto login but even at the login screen, it still connects to the controller even though I'm not in the client yet) Once steam is open, it takes the DS4 hostage pretty much. Decided to try a thirdparty wrapper "DS4Windows" for a moment, I open it and it manages to take control of the DS4 but once I click on steam in anyway, Steam takes the hook back. So I guess Steam has a consistent hook which is probably the cause?

Steam have an option for games that already have native support for DS4, you just need to uncheck this box and it should work (or not as it is still on development xD).

Is the option only accessible via Big Picture Mode?

Didn't know about that, just tried it and it works. Thanks for sharing. I'm a bit deep into the game now so this definitely helps. (For learning the combos and such.)

Something to add is that switching out the files does work (as mentioned already) but when I got to "The Scalding Gallow" I think it's called, when you have to get all those "Shadow Lurkers" for the Golem, when I'd go to one of the objectives to do this when I reached the middle of the arena, War would just freeze there. Switched back to original and it worked fine. I guess for the prompt that pops up on screen, it couldnt load so it just froze.

Sadly yes, but it remains working after you set it, and you don't need to be playing the game to do this (as I show in the screeshot), on bigpicture library you can set for any game on it's game info section.

Found an issue with doing this. I switched to PS4 prompts as I'm using a PS3 controller, but when I want to see my weapons info by pressing Triangle, nothing happens and all kinds of input stop working. The game still runs, but just can't do anything other than just Alt+F4 the game. This doesn't happen when using default Xbox prompts. Going back to Xbox promts while this (hopefully) gets fixed.
