Dark Souls 3: Ashes of Ariandel, the first DLC for the best RPG made since Majora’s Mask, launches today, a day early, due to a mishap with the Xbox Store.
On Friday, the DLC popped briefly on the Xbox Store, allowing some users to get their hands on it. Because of this Bandai Namco decided to launch the DLC a day early.
They told GameSpot:
“Due to a logistical error, the Dark Souls III Ashes of Ariandel DLC was made available for download for a short period of time for Xbox One players. We have since corrected this scheduling error and the Dark Souls III Ashes of Ariandel DLC will now be available on October 24, 2016 at 3 PM PDT for Steam players and October 24, 2016 at 9 PM PDT for console players. We regret any confusion this may have caused to players and Dark Souls III fans; we look forward to seeing everyone within the world of Ariandel.”
Now really, the DLC launches at 12 am EST on the 25th for consoles, so it’s really not THAT big of a difference, except for PC users.
