Dark Souls: Remastered Edition Announced

Dark Souls is one of those weird games that hardly anyone seemed to like when it first came out. Really. Hardly anyone really played it, there wasn’t a ton of hype around the game, etc. But, years later, I don’t know if gamers changed or what happened, but suddenly Dark Souls became super popular. Still, to this day, people talk about the series, particularly Dark Souls from 2011.

“Dark Souls is a third-person action role-playing game. The core mechanic of the game is exploration. Players are encouraged by the game to proceed with caution, learn from past mistakes, or find alternate areas to explore. Dark Souls takes place in a large and continuous open world environment, connected through a central hub area (Firelink Shrine).

Players are able to travel to and from areas and explore various paths at will, although certain prerequisites have to be met in order to unlock certain areas.”

If you’re one of the many people that play this game you might be interested to know that they are doing a Dark Souls Remastered edition.

Bandai Namco said that if you’re playing on Xbox One X you will get 4K with 60 FPS, it will also be available on other generations of consoles, but the FPS has not been announced yet.  In the description for the game it says that all consoles will have 60 FPS, but that’s not how Bandai worded it, so I am not exactly sure.  I would assume it would either be 60 on Xbox One and PS4 or somewhere close since these are still new gen consoles.

Everyone that purchases the Dark Souls remastered edition will get all of the DLCs, with 6 player integration and 9 new online covenants.

Dark Souls Remastered will be available on May 25th. Because it is a remastered edition, it will not be the same price as a brand new game.
