The Dark Souls series was undoubtedly one of the most significant franchises to emerge during the last generation of consoles. So far, next gen players have been forced to make do with an (admittedly enjoyable) knock off called Lords of the Fallen. Well, thanks to publisher Bandai Namco and developer From Software, XBO and PS4 owners will soon have access to the real thing.
Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, which is also coming to PC, bundles the core game, all three DLC instalments and a range of bonus content, including fresh enemies and a new NPC. According to the announcement, players can look forward to an “all-new level of graphics, sound, and lighting”. In short, it may be port, but it looks the game will be receiving some TLC for its next gen debut in April 2015.
A version of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin will also be coming to 360 and PS3 and a free update containing many of the improvements will be made available for existing copies of the game.
