Namco Bandai declared that with the Dark Souls 2 pre-orders you will also get five weapon packs for the early access at the beginning of the game.
Weapon Packs?? In a Souls game?? No thanks...
Beginner items generally suck, it's inconsequential.
I guess it doesn't really look like 'beginner' items, as you will be able to find them throughout the rest of the game. So you might not even be able to use the because you're level won't be high enough.
I know what you mean. I don't want to get the impression that I paid for an early advantage in a game where challenge is everything. Good thing they are still available later in the game to those who didn't pre-order. And they most likely wont be that strong. Weapons in Dark Souls are almost all comparable. Some people still PvP with plain upgraded longswords
Yeah but to be fair, those people typically don't last very long...
Agree. Pre-order 'bonuses' in general are cancerous (especially so in a Souls game). Not as evil as the way post release revenue is disguised as legitimate DLC though.
Can't pre-order PC because we don't have a date. MF!
I really wanna get PC Dark Souls 2, but I was wondering... how much of a problem are hackers in DS1?
I have not faced any invader that was hacked. Then again I have not really witnessed any online hacks in my 1 and a half years of playing games on PC
I hear varying reports, some say it's not that bad to non-existent. Some say it's every other invader, my friend who plays Dark Souls on PC is in the latter category, take that for what it's worth. Since it's getting released (at least somewhat) along side the console version, it'll probably be more closely monitored and evened out. I couldn't play Dark Souls on anything but a console though...the community is what makes it (not saying that the PC community is bad, but it IS much smaller)
Hopefully PC version will not have any of this garbage,with no one getting anything early. If not should not be a big deal because DS weapons were usually comparable= and these are supposedly obtainable.
Good thing i pre ordered back in December.
if namco plan to bring monthly DLC to souls game, then they are playing the dangerous card, i support DS1 DLC because i think it worth but never monthly DLC in DS2 the idea of miyazaky don't develop is turn me off enough for this game
Monthly DLC, where the hell did you get that from?
I don't like it, but we've known about this set for a while and judging by their descriptions they aren't DLC exclusive and have drawbacks to them, as well as most of them looking ugly as sin.
Couldn't agree more...Jesus Christ who stuck a long-sword in a bucket of piss and then froze it...
and with things like that the casualization of the souls series begins, next thing you know we will start getting microtransactions,season passes,health booster packs,easy modes and exclusive gamestop missions and costumes, piss off! one of the things i used to like most about the series was the absence of this kind of bullshit that nowadays affect all games, it was a pure,complete 100% game
The weapons are still in the game you know and probably won't be very hard to get or that good, stop overreacting.
