Namco Bandai is bringing its brilliant action RPG to the PC, with extra stuff included. And we’re talking to the developers in a couple of hours…
Dark Souls – coming to a PC near you, to dominate your life.
Than you may well have heard by now, Namco has announced that it’s bringing From Software’s relentless masterpiece Dark Souls to PC. Subtitled ‘The Prepare To Die Edition’ (because, you know, we didn’t die enough in the console version), the fresh version will feature exclusive new content and an enhanced PVP mode, “allowing players to more closely assemble battles against one
another online in an all-out fight to the death that fans have demanded”.
The additional content is still mostly under wraps, but the publisher’s press release does highlight a whole extra chapter, ‘Artorias of the Abyss’, which will include new areas, enemies and bosses.
The conversion has been undertaken by the original dev team at From Software and is likely to include a few other surprises.
Later on today, we’ll be in a group interview with producer Hidetaka Miyazaki and should be able to fire at least a couple of questions in his direction. If you have anything you want to ask about the conversion, or Dark Souls in general, let me know via the comments section!
