Dark Souls patched to 1.09 on PS3

A new patch is set to be released for Dark Souls on PS3 and will bring the game to version 1.09.

The 1.09 patch is extremely specific and exclusive to the PS3. It intends to fix issues with flickering in the game that have plagued users.

The issue cropped up again last Monday and saw a sea of users complain about the state of the game (Dark Souls, PS3)

Thank goodness, what an annoyance that was.

Arg, no new patch yet. Misleading title.

Can't wait to hop on and see the results.

I just checked. It's still not patched.

"A new patch is *set* to be released for Dark Souls on PS3 and will bring the game to version 1.09."

The title is misleading.

I had to admit defeat and tap out of Dark souls at that big crystal cave with the invisible bridges. I tried a few times to clear that thing and failed horribly, at this time I'm afraid to even look at the case sitting on my shelf. Great game but I won't be diving back in until there's a patch to let me fly and give me quickly regenerating health.

Get back in there and be a real man!

The trick to the Crystal Cave is that you'll see snowflakes falling from the ceiling, and they'll stop when they hit the bridges. You can also keep throwing Prism Stones. Once you get past the two invisible bridges it's a short walk to one of the easiest bosses in Dark Souls, Seath is a pushover.

Thanks for the help, folks. I might give it another shot tonight after a few hearty swigs of whiskey for courage.

Navigating is the easy part, just wait until you make it across and encounter the giant clamshell monsters and Seath The Scaleless. If you're having a lot of trouble getting across, you're in for a world of hurt when you get there. This is a brutal game and you really have to want it, otherwise you will fail.

I just got the game a few days ago and the flickering signs glitch is so annoying.

Dark Soul 2 image with Dark Souls 1 news, title says "patched" a term used for past tens yet its still not out.

Who the fuck approved this crap?

It was up in North America this week, I had to update when I played last night, that being Thursday.

I have to get back Into this game. I did the dragon head glitch and maxed out all my stats. Then I was fighting enemies that kicked my ass Lol.
Swiggins  +   875d ago
The dragon head glitch has been patched out completely.

If you're going to start a new game, I'd recommend checking out a forum, as the PVP meta-game has changed completely in the last few patches.

People in the US are saying the patch is live, will check myself later (I'm in the UK).
