Dark Souls II for PS4, XOne and PC DirectX 11 Announced [REPOST: IT SUCKS NOW]

   0

Wow, it looks like FROM is REALLY screwing people with this upgrade. I guess the servers will be split for the console versions, too, but on the PC, they're essentially charging for an engine upgrade. What the hell.

 

ORIGINAL BLOG:

OH SNAP, SON.

It looks like everyone is getting their wish, as Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is coming to current-gen consoles. The PC isn't being left out, either, as a new, DirectX 11-based version is launching alongside the console versions. The improvements will come in the form of a free update for everyone who already owns the original version on the PS3, 360 and PC (except for the original three DLC packs, obviously, which you'll have to buy if you haven't already); since the game hasn't made it to the PS4 or Xbox One before now, those versions will be brand-new releases with everything included.

New NPCs, better online, improved graphics and more are coming. As a huge fan of the Souls series and an owner of the giant collector's package of the second game on Steam, I couldn't be happier right now. Dark Souls II is one of my favorite games of all time (yes, even more than the first one, even though I think I'm in the minority there), so I'm absolutely ecstatic about this.

About pedrovay2003one of us since 2:15 PM on 11.14.2006

Name: Peter
Home State: New York
Currently Residing In: Utah
Birthday: October 13th, 1985 (I'll always secretly consider the NES to have been a five-day late birthday present to me from Nintendo.)
Degree: Communication (with a writing emphasis)

I'm a Mass Communication/Journalism graduate from the University of Utah, which I'm starting to question, since it was a tough field to get into even before the economy went down the toilet. I love writing; Not only do I consider it my passion, but I also believe it's an invaluable skill for this socially-connected age in which we live. Writing about video games brings me more joy than I can even describe in words, which is saying a lot, considering.

As far as video games go, I've been a gamer since I was two years old. I try to play whatever interests me, despite what other people think of those games. I suppose I consider myself to be "obsessed" with gaming, but not in the sense that all I want to do is beat games. I'm fascinated with the industry as a whole, and in some way, shape or form, I'd love to be a part of it professionally someday.
