BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. today released new screen shots for DARK SOULS II: Scholar of the First Sin focusing on the gameplay improvements and advancement of the DARK SOULS II story.
To every great quest comes an inevitable end. Today FromSoftware launches the final exciting chapter of the Dark Souls™ II The Lost Crowns trilogy upon its most hardcore fans. As in the previous two chapters of The Lost Crowns trilogy, only the most hardcore, determined, and unrelenting fans will survive the onslaught of new enemies, traps, and bosses that have been devised to stop players from completing their quests in Crown of the Ivory King.
Without having to wait for long, the PC version comes just over a month after the console release. And without question, it is the definitive release to play and enjoy. But beyond that, and more to the point Dark Souls II is pure excellence. There’s a challenge around every corner, lore hidden within conversations, and secrets begging to be revealed in the environment. It can be frustrating, but it can also be extremely satisfying too. It’s a deep game that demands your attention, and won’t let it go for long after you’ve put the controller down.
Dark Souls has gained quite the following over the past couple years and the series just keeps bringing in new players. With the Souls series “go anywhere play anyway you like” style, Souls games tend to be different for each and every player. This makes the task of creating a direct sequel difficult with such a wide variety of expectations on the line. From Software took to this challenge and created a title that was more of the same, and it’s wonderful.
BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. and FromSoftware today announced the impending arrival of three new DLC chapters to the critically acclaimed Dark Souls II. These three new DLC chapters known as The Lost Crowns trilogy will take Dark Souls II fans through entirely original areas to face a slew of unknown enemies, overcome diabolic challenges, and take-on fearsome bosses. Crown of the Sunken King, the first chapter in this DLC trilogy, will be available in the Americas on July, 22, 2014 followed by the DLC launches of Crown of the Old Iron King on August 26, 2014 and Crown of the Ivory King on September 24, 2014.
