IGN: The Artorias of the Abyss downloadable content to hit Xbox 360 and PS3 this winter.
Thank you, i knew you wouldnt forget about us
it's weird that the IGN article doesn't mention a Prepare to Die console retail edition for US: "Special retail versions of the Prepare to Die Edition will be available in Europe and Australia on August 24 for the PC version, and later this winter for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3." so I don't know if I should sell my copy now or not
DAY ONE PURCHASE!!! Can't wait. Glad they finally announced this for consoles. It's really far away... I wonder what the content will do to the PvP community. New builds and such. Exciting!!!
Hmmm Winter? Seems a bit late, but I don't care I'm just happy I'll have the chance to play it.
Praise the Sun.
*Takes of Glowing Hat* Oh come now, there is no need to praise me..
"Sticky White Stuff."
Winter... which Winter? America's? Japan's? Still, looking foward to this either way.
America & Japan have the same winter! Now if we were talking about Argentina, South Africa, or Oz, that would be a different story.
FUCK YES Best news i've read all year.
I guess it's time to die again... >:)
good, as much as I love pc gaming it didnt seem fair for console gamers not to get the extra content. It should be day 1 though, makes me wonder if nvidia or amd are paying for this to come to pc?
Nah, it should be on pc for abit, let the pc race enjoy what they have.
Yeah I agree. Also, let the Dev team focus on one platform at a time. Get the PC out, get some bug fixes and patches and balancing fixed up and then get that finished product to the consoles. $15 seems like such a bargain for all the content we will get...
Maybe they are hoping people won't want to wait, and will end up double dipping on the game.
Wicked this was one of the best games this generation
let me correct you....."was one" should be replaced with "is".....
I'm about to buy Dark Souls in a week or two so I can't have an opinion on that, but I just platinumed Demon's Souls... Never have I cared about trophies, still really don't but I just wanted to do everything I could in Demon's Souls. Might never get another platinum again. Demon's Souls is my favorite game of this generation, I literally haven't felt as much enjoyment from playing a game in years, back when I was a little kid. It really brought back great memories from gaming as a kid. If Dark Souls can top Demon's Souls... Man I don't even know what to say. Can't wait to play it.
@cpayne93 i know exactly the feeling your talking about lol. its like playing an old school game but new at the same time. and as far as dark toppign demon, thats debatable. i personally liked dark a little better but thats becuase of the level design. while it was great in demon souls, the world being connected made exploring even more fun imo. i did however find demon souls much more challenging. either way though, both are easily at the top for me. even eclipsing ME, ME3, the witcher 2 and dragon age for me.
@captain qwark The reason you though Demon's Souls was harder than Dark Souls for you is because you played Demon's Souls, ergo you were experienced. Most review said that Dark Souls is harder, and From Software said that they made Dark Souls much harder than Demon's Souls
I literally just beat this game yesterday! I'm pumped!
Was about to buy the PC version only to play this. Dark Souls is one of my favorite game ever!
buy it anyway!
Brilliant, i just discovered these two games in the last few weeks and have been completely absorbed by them, im only about 10 hours into Dark Souls and it just carries on from Demons Souls in terms of quality. If only all sequels were like this. They have that old school feel but at the same time feel so fresh. There is a slight disappointment with this news though, i was kinda expecting/hoping a third 'Souls' game to be announced at E3, but thats highly unlikely with this announcement. This is still great news though and the dlc sounds like a full game compared to other games dlc's.
I'm still getting it for PC but glad the extra content is making its way to the consoles as well.
the only news better would be a sequel due this november!.....not gonna happen :(
Good to hear! Dark Souls love for all! August cant come soon enough! I WANT THIS IN MY PC
this is great and the only next best thing would be a sequel, make it happen guys. can't wait.
Oh praise the Sun! I thought From Software lost their minds for a second not releasing this on the consoles, phew! All is right in the world, no everyone can enjoy this great game.
"all is right in the world" lol. that's the exact line that went through my head too.
Beat ds and dark three times each so im waiting for more. Love this game!!!!!!! Best news i heard in awhile.
Awesome....but it should be free not 15 bucks. Take a page from the Whitcher 2, when making an edition for a system and adding more to it give the extra stuff for the PEOPLE WHO SUPPORTED YOU for free. from software I love you but you have officially disappointed me
If the witcher 2 was made on console first then the extra missions that came with would have been paid for just like this dark souls DLC. This has to do with PC being an open platform (thats why it is free) and consoles being closed. "All DLC for the PC version is and will remain free," Badowski emphasized. "That's not likely to be the story for the Xbox version, because of certain Microsoft policies that need to be followed. But on PC, once you buy our game, you don't need to worry about any additional costs – we will provide all updates, including those featuring new content, for free." "The Polish studio confirmed that all of the content released up until now will be included on the Xbox 360 edition, but that might not be the case with DLC that's made after game's console version is launched in early 2012."
Microsoft/Sony policies make it so any update or extra DLC has to be paid for after the first 2 updates. anything after has to be paid content, otherwise it comes out of the company's own funds. FROM is a small company and any financial strain could put them under. i will pay for this DLC because: a) i know it was made AFTER the game was finished. b) it was a response to fans who wanted more dark souls, and FROM honored that c) we need to encourage companies who take risks making these types of games, instead of another wartime fps!
I believe Sony has no such policy. Although I've heard Microsoft does.
One of the few DLC that actually fells like a bonus......
oh thank god
now if only they can patch the over powered backstabing during pvp and maybe add a pvp arena then were set :P Cant wait for this DLC!
I bet you have to start a brand new game to see the DLC items/areas etc. Otherwise people will just pile through it in no time with their level 200+ armed to the teeth tanks, lol :) Praise the sun!
Time to boot up my 900 hour save file and get back into the flow of Dark Souls. Haven't played in a while, but man, new DLC sounds awesome. I was a little worried at first that the content wasn't coming to consoles.
with "the last of us", blackops2, assasins creed3, bioshock, and many more titles, this to little to late DLC is a waste of time and money.
Your comments are a waste, get out.
A list of all but 1 shooter AND you insulted Dark Souls... http://objection.mrdictiona...
I called it, From Software would never cross their original fanbase unlike other Devs.
