Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin Hits PS4, PS3 April 7th

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.

  • The Souls series has officially hit fan boy status, what a sad end to an amazing series.

    This is so beautiful finally a game worth my attention on the ps4. R.I.P PS3 for the only reason I played you since getting the ps4 was for ds. May u rest comfortably knowing that you did your job! Well done well done!

  • Awesome!!! Will saved games transfer from PS3 to PS4!?!? :)

  • like i said last year there was no way they wasnt going to bring this to the PS4, especially with it coming out so close to the release of the ps4.

    they just didnt wanna say anything cuz they wanted to sell as many copies as they could. same thing with GTA V. thats why i didnt buy either for ps3.

    Why release this 2 weeks after bloodborne? Makes no sense. no one will care about this with bloodborne out a true current gen game by the guy who made the souls series.

    @29, you are insane….the best souls game is dark souls 1..dark souls 1 craps all over 2 in level design and boss fights……the world design in Ds 2 was recycled and lacked imagination like ds 1.

    There better be some way to transfer the PS3 version save data for those of us who would like to jump from the ps3 to the ps4 version of the game, dont want to do all that leveling again…

  • This is great news. I have donated my PS3 to a friend and missed out on DS2 on that platform. I am so excited to play it on PS4 along with Bloodborne.
