Dark Souls, the hugely influential (not to mention tough as nails) action game from 2011, will be seeing a remaster for current generation consoles this year, publisher Namco Bandai announced today.
With Dark Souls III and the Scholar of the First Sin re-release of Dark Souls II on PS4 and Xbox One, this is the first time that owners of those consoles can play the entire Dark Souls trilogy on the same console. This remaster would also mark the first time that a Dark Souls game has appeared on a Nintendo platform. The remaster is expected to contain the extra content of the Prepare to Die edition of the game, which included extra enemies, bosses, locations and loot.
The enhanced game is announced to run at 60 frames-per-second at 4K resolution on PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and PC, and at 30FPS at 1080p on Nintendo Switch when docked. Whilst the hit to performance on Switch is somewhat disappointing, but understandable, there is a novelty to being able to play Dark Souls on the go that will likely prove appealing to many.
Dark Souls Remastered is set to come out on the 25 May 2018. Will you be picking it up to delve into Lordran once again? Let us know in the comments!
