Dark Souls II is coming to PS4 and Xbox One on April 7 as Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin. The re-release, which collects all three DLC packs and makes other improvements, is also coming to PC, PS3, and Xbox 360,...




Dark Souls II had a few of the toughest bosses in the series, but they'd be especially hard if you played the game in first-person. That's what a modder named Benzoin-Gun has done, detailing his creation in the vid...




Today in news that made me squeal like a fanboy, From Software has released a Design Works book for Dark Souls II just like its predecessor in Japan. It features over 200 pages of the darkly beautiful art of the Souls world,...




After a brief delay, the Dark Souls II DLC trilogy has come to an end with Crown of the Ivory King. It's available today on Steam and Xbox 360 and tomorrow on PlayStation 3 for $9.99 -- or you can get all three add-ons bundle...




Bandai Namco has announced that the third (and presumably final) DLC for Dark Souls II, the Crown of the Ivory King, has been delayed by one week. Originally it was set for this Wednesday, but now it's due on September 30th a...




Snow isn't a common theme with the Souls series, so it's interesting that the upcoming Dark Souls II DLC Crown of the Ivory King will take place on an icy tundra. This new batch of screens looks suitably dreary...




While Dark Souls II brought me back to that special place that I found with Demon's Souls in many ways, the first DLC pack, Crown of the Sunken King, didn't go far enough with its concepts. It's really hard to give ...




Fresh off its new Crown of the Sunken King DLC, From Software has updated and tweaked Dark Souls II for everyone. Weapons have been balanced (with extra or decreased damage depending on the item), and spells have be...




2014 has been very good to me, but Dark Souls II is one of my favorite games of the year. Many debates have raged on as to whether or not it's as exceptional as its predecessor (Demon's Souls is better than bot...




The last batch of images for Crown of the Sunken King left me anticipating this Dark Souls II DLC which is, oh good, only a week off. There's more where that came from. Using an item acquired in the DLC, players will reach th...




A lot of us would find eSports far more alluring if the genres associated with these competitions were more diverse. We see plenty of first-person shooters, RTS, fighting games, and MOBAs. But what about something atypical l...




In case you haven't heard, DLC is coming to Dark Souls II. Three add-ons in fact! The first up is Crown of the Sunken King, set to drop on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on July 22nd. To celebrate, Bandai Namco sent over some scre...




A set of downloadable chapters dubbed The Lost Crowns trilogy are heading to Dark Souls II, Bandai Namco announced today. The first episode, Crown of the Sunken King, will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 3...




I haven't been keeping up with Dark Souls II speedruns. I should be. We got a tip in this weekend about Marksel's 21:25 world-record any% run, which has since been topped by Distortion2's 20:14 run, included above. Seems the...




In the weeks leading up to E3, there have been some truly interesting leaks. Headlining that list is undoubtedly "Project Beast," rumored to be the working title for the next From Software game. The next (Demon's?) Souls. The...




Dark Souls II has been out for a few weeks on consoles, enough time for fans to really dig in, and now PC players have shown up in style. I'm liking the game -- less so than its predecessors, overall -- but still: when I'm no...




After providing general tips for getting a bit more out of Dark Souls II visually, renowned modder Durante has written another article for PC Gamer detailing his next major release. The DSfix creator has a new tool, GeDoSaTo,...




The appearance of the original Dark Souls on PC was welcome but it was... let's say troubled. Its innovative online mode was married to the much maligned Games for Windows Live service and the game was locked at a piddly 1024...




Oh, hey! Dark Souls II is out today on Steam! From Software's coveted action-RPG will unlock slightly earlier than expected at 3:00pm Pacific (thanks, Jacob!). Consider this your last chance to get in there for the pre-purch...




Modder Peter "Durante" Thoman led the charge in making Dark Souls a better-looking game on PC. While the PC port of the sequel is an improvement over developer From Software's last effort, there's room to push its graphics fu...




There was some confusion this morning about a possible delay for the PC version of Dark Souls II, which is already later than its console counterparts. Regrettably, there is a delay, to May 2 -- but only in the United Kingdom...




How many times have I died in Dark Souls II now? 12, 14... 16? Truth is I've already lost count of how many times I've taken a blade to the chest or an arrow to the face. Whenever I think I'm making progress, something takes ...




This Dark Souls II death counter makes me feel a little bit better about myself. Between the 360 and PS3 versions of the game (there's a drop down to switch between), over 4 million have already died. Billions of souls have b...




Alongside today's launch of Dark Souls II, the game's Australian YouTube channel published the above tutorial video featuring Jeremy "The Junglist" Ray and YouTube Souls expert VaatiVidya. It's a thorough explanation of...




Dark Souls II is launching today, and so begins the all important (at least, initially) decision on what character class to choose at the start. After a short intro, you'll have the ability to pick from the Warrior, Knig...




See that screenshot above? That's me, in Hollow form (read: after dying), "enjoying" The Gutter zone from Dark Souls II. In the shot, I've just taken respite on a spare platform (while poisoned), only to find that a giant dem...




This video comes from SuperNormalMode, who demonstrates just how easy it is to beat Dark Souls II's Dragonrider boss in under 15 seconds. I love how the dramatic music immediately stops.




My experience with the Souls series is one of my favorite memories of my entire gaming career. Playing Demon's Souls for the first time made me feel like a kid again, back when games didn't hold your hand and explai...




Dark Souls II trailers have been sort of weird. I suppose they're trying to not scare people away with the, "this is the hardest thing ever" shtick, opting to appear more accessible and hip. Don't care. One more day. Unless you're holing out for the PC version, bless your (dark) soul. That thing at 1:16.




Dark Souls II is launching this week on consoles, but PC gamers will have to wait until April 25th to pick up their copy. While you're sitting there twiddling your thumbs, check out the PC requirements (minimum and recommende...




Should I have waited until the game comes out for consoles on Tuesday to watch this, part one of the Dark Souls II prologue? Probably. But what's done is done. If you're on the fence, there's talk of the usual subjects -- lo...




There was concern that the PC release of Dark Souls II would arrive long after the game hits Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 11, 2014. While the PC date isn't as bad as some had feared, it's by no means right around the c...




Dark Souls II has done a pretty decent job of giving everyone the impression that they need to prepare for death again. Well, if you want to escalate things a bit and go beyond death, the Collector's Edition of Dark Sou...




It's not a bad trailer, but I suppose it just feels tonally different than usual. The music sounds like something out of a gritty cop/crime movie, but the voice over does speak to series fans specifically, while broadly being a sort of halftime locker room pep talk. It's less bleak, I guess, instead focusing on the hard won triumph you may eventually earn. Neat. March 11, guys!




Early purchases of Dark Souls II will come with a voucher for the "Black Armor Weapons Pack" containing five weapons and shields (find the item descriptions below) which players can make use of at the beginning of the game. A...




Well this is pretty surprising. Unless it's a mistake, Dark Souls II has been given a "T" rating from the ESRB for "Blood and Gore, Mild Language, Partial Nudity, Violence", whereas the first two games have been granted ...




Only a bit shy of a month away from Dark Souls II's console release, many are left wondering when exactly the PC version will be unleashed upon the masses. From Software's said in the past that it would see a slight delay so...




It was admirable of From Software to treat Dark Souls II as "a full game," in the words of producer Takeshi Miyazoe, and not plan for DLC as a required part of production. I don't think any of us are expecting anything less f...




As one of the most celebrated and admired games of the last generation, the Souls series from the developers at From Software has many admirers and critics. Many swear by its uncompromising and hardcore gameplay systems and d...




PlayStation Access has about 12 minutes of Dark Souls II footage as played by some lucky soul at Namco Bandai and, thing is, it doesn't really cover new ground. It's the same shadowy underground areas lit up by torches, the ...




From Software is incorporating the six winning community-made shield designs from that contest into Dark Souls II and here's a look at two of them all finished up. How seamless. Not only are the winners going to receive a cop...




"This is Dark Souls - Die for the first time." Perfect. The Achievements / Trophies for Dark Souls II have come out and this is not a link to click if you're one to fear spoilers. Locations, bosses, friendly characters, and c...




We're about two months away from Dark Souls II's March 11 (13, Japan; 14, PAL) release. If the trailer from a couple days ago wasn't enough to get you angrily excited, here are a bunch of new screenshots. There's a guy with a cool hat who looks like Cervantes.




A new trailer for Dark Souls II has just hit the interwebs and it is thrilling. Huge enemies, vast and inhospitable environments, it's sticking to the playbook and that's just fine. The only problem I have with it is th...




Namco Bandai has released the first few pages of the Dark Souls II digital comic, titled "Into the Light." It's written by Rob Williams and Andi Ewington, and you can find it here on the official Facebook page. It appears as ...




Lately, Namco Bandai has been pretty keen to show off its upcoming title, Dark Souls II. With early 2014 looking pretty packed, From Software's next entry in the Souls series looks to be the one to keep an eye out for. In the...




The Facebook page for Darks Souls surprised fans by dropping a bunch of screenshots for the upcoming sequel, Dark Souls II. In these pics, we get to see some areas not shown before, many of which show off the coast of the new...




[Back in April of 2007, former Destructoid writer Chad Concelmo started a recurring series called "The Memory Card." The purpose was simple -- to share some of the greatest events in gaming history, and give them the respect ...




From Software has revealed the new Japanese boxart for Dark Souls II, and has uncovered retailer specific weapon DLC in the process. Based on the outlet you reserve the game at (such as Geo, Best Denki or Amazon.co.jp), you c...




After reading Chris' take on the Dark Souls II beta, you're probably eager to get in and try it for yourself. I know I am. A couple of notes on that front: first, European PlayStation Plus users are getting hooked up with acc...
