Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin Announced
Have you jumped upon the next generation of consoles but not had the chance to Prepare To Die with Dark Souls 2? Well, Bandai Namco and FromSoftware have announced a PS4/Xbox One (and DirectX11) version of Dark Souls 2 is coming!
Said Bandai Namco:
The undead curse continues to spread across the kingdom of Drangleic with Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, available on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and Steam on the following dates:
EU: April 3, 2015
Americas: April 7, 2015
This ultimate Dark Souls II experience features additional in-game events and NPCs along with new deadlier enemies and gameplay improvements. This experience includes the original Dark Souls II along with the three DLC chapters – Crown of the Sunken King, Crown of the Old Iron King, and Crown of the Ivory King. It will also take advantage of the advanced power of the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and DirectX11 capable PCs to provide enhanced graphics for those platforms!
This new version of the game will include the previously-released DLC packs, as well as new NPCs, new online matchmaking, and tweaks to the current gameplay. For the Xbox One, PS4, and DirectX11 versions, there will be improved graphics and audio, as well as greater online capabilities.
People who already own Dark Souls 2 on Xbox 360, PS3, and the DirectX9 PC version will be getting this update for free. Though it seems a little unfair on those who own the PC version, as they will have to buy the game again to get access to the new graphics and online capabilities, it is still a nice touch for the developers to provide the extra content for free to those who’ve already bought the game.
