Dark Souls is known for its punishing difficulty just like its big brother, Demon’s Souls. Set in the fictional town of Lordran, Dark Souls sees the player traveling to this forgotten land infested with gargoyles, wraiths, and all kinds of nightmare inducing creatures. The new trailer that Bandai Namco shared this morning showcases a shiny new coat of paint and a few of the monstrous bosses that lurk in the shadows. You can take a look at it below, if you dare.
I tell ya, May 25th cannot get here soon enough. That’s the day that the highly anticipated Dark Souls: Remastered hits store shelves for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. Just to whet the appetites of long-time fans, Bandai Namco has released a new trailer that gives you just a little taste of what this remaster has to offer.
A very cool thing that Bandai Namco and Steam is doing will allow PC players that have purchased the Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition to receive a 50% discount on DS:R. And if you would rather play the game on a PS4 or Xbox One, you can now pre-order the game so that you can download it as soon as it goes live in each console’s digital marketplace. Just as a reminder, on May 8th, the Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition will be removed from Steam and only those that have previously purchased it will still be able to re-download and play it.
Just to make sure that the game runs as it should on launch day, Bandai Namco plans to hold a network test for PS4 and Xbox One versions. A date and time for the network test hasn’t yet been revealed, but the publisher promises to share those details ASAP.
Switch fans, don’t think that Bandai Namco has forgotten about you, because a version of the game is also in development for Nintendo’s very popular console. It was also originally planned to be released on May 25th but the developer From Software is taking a little more time to get the game to run a little smoother on the handheld console and will release it in the summer. In addition, the Solaire of Astora Amiibo has been delayed, as well as the Switch network test.
