Just when you thought it was safe to return to your gaming platform of choice- BAM! Bandai Namco and FromSoftware have announced Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, which means, ladies and gentleman, it’s time to die all over again!
This newest addition to the Souls lineage is essentially the equivalent of the Prepare to Die Edition of the previous installment, containing the base game and all three DLC locations. But before you dismiss this as you would a pathetic hollow, take heed Chosen Undead, for there is more!
Not only is this beautiful tormentor getting the next gen re-polish for PS4, XBox One and PC but it will also include brand new game content! This includes an expanded story featuring additional in-game events and NPC characters (just give me Solaire, damn you!) along with new deadlier enemies and gameplay improvements- which I assumes means extreme balancing, it’s always balancing.
Those that already own Dark Souls II, FromSoftware’s got something for y’all too. The extra enemies and all round improvements will be made available to you in the way of a free patch via your platforms network.
Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin will hit PlayStation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Direct X11 capable PC’s on 2 April, 2015.
