I'm anxiously awaiting this release, and I've beaten both games at least three times each. Not many video games earn that much love from me.

Yep, just like TLOU and GTA5 I want this game in my collection. Shiny new graphics are just a big plus :)

I didnt play dark souls 2 so for me it will be worth the purchase.

TheSaint939d ago (Edited 939d ago )

Shame there are three souls games in the series.

Not if you already own it on less gen.

Understood. Nonetheless, if a person didn't play the $30 DLC, would enjoy more non-playable characters, likes expanded plot points, would enjoy higher online player counts and would appreciate DirectX 11 quality graphics on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One...

That's cumbersome to forcibly ignore.

Well put, I was on the fence about buying it again as I didn't have as much love for it as DS1. But I think you've just persuaded me.

No, because last gen would have more higher player count. An most people that love the game have no problem with getting the dlc.

"No, because last gen would have more higher player count."

But it doesn't. Not even on PC. This new version increases the maximum online co-op partners from the original version's 2 to 5 in a single session, totaling 6 online players when it was previously 3.

Last gen versions of this game exclude online increases to online co-op partners and graphical upgrades.

In addition, this new version's online matching enables all players to match up with people they want, like their friends, regardless of how many playthroughs players have.

"An most people that love the game have no problem with getting the dlc."

You're right. However this is best for the people who didn't want to pay for DLC. They'll get the most out of this deal on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

It is worth it to me. I had already moved on to the PS4 by the time Dark Souls 2 released, so Scholar of the First Sin will be my first time playing it.

Meh, I would've prefered DS1;)

AKissFromDaddy940d ago (Edited 940d ago )

A sound YES, before even reading this article, in my opinion, and more so if one hasn't played Dark Souls 2 before.

Nonetheless, Mr. Lee agrees:
"If you skipped out on the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 releases completely and prefer playing games on consoles, then Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin is a absolute must buy on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Otherwise, you will be missing out on one of the best games released in recent years."
