In the realm of remakes that I was both expecting and managed to be surprised by, Dark Souls II is coming to Xbox One and Playstation 4 as Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin.
The updated version will have improved graphics, new NPC’s integrated into the main game, and will include all three DLC packs. Additional gameplay enhancements and features are also promised. A lot of gamers get upset about remakes, but I could not be more excited. I’ve been meaning to load up the last gen versions and run through the DLC, and now I have an additional incentive to do it.
Will you be grabbing the updated version to one of history’s most daunting series? Who could resist exposing themselves to more of culture’s latest icon for self-inflicted torture?
Alongside the “remaster” will release patch 1.10, which will bring a slew new content to all versions of Dark Souls II. Even if you’re not upgrading next year, you’ll get access to “an additional NPC to seek out along the treacherous quest through Drangleic as well as expanded story, in-game events, improved balance, and online matchmaking functionality.”
Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin will be hitting Playstation 4 and Xbox One, and also the last-gen consoles this April 7th. Praise the sun!
