Hello, PlayStation fans! I’m beyond excited to finally reveal Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, a very special project from Bandai Namco Games Inc. and FromSoftware, available April 7th, 2015 for PS4 and PS3.
That, my friends, is not a typo. Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is coming to PS3 and PS4 next year! Not only that, but it will take advantage of the next generation capabilities of PS4, giving fans of the series and newcomers alike updated visuals, rebalanced gameplay, a higher maximum number of players for online play, new and deadlier enemies, a brand new NPC to discover, expanded lore, and new in-game events.
Scholar of the First Sin also has the Crown of the Sunken King, Crown of the Old Iron King, and Crown of the Ivory King DLC already included as well. This is the ultimate version of Dark Souls II.
The PS3 version of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin will be bundled with all three DLC missions and also include the additional NPC, expanded story, in-game events as well as improved gameplay balance and online matchmaking functionality. PS3 owners who already own Dark Souls II will receive the improved balancing and matchmaking as well as expanded story content free of charge as a large-scale update.
In short, we’ve got you covered if you’ve been thinking about jumping into the Dark Souls universe or are already a hardcore fan of the series for PS3.
And that’s not all! We can also announce today that the PS3 version of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin will be playable at PlayStation Experience in Las Vegas on December 6th and 7th. We’ll see you wonderful people in Las Vegas as we try to piece together new mysteries in Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin.
