Namco Bandai has today announced a few new details for the upcoming Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition as well as console exlusive DLC titled Artorias of the Abyss. Also announced today is some new details on the PC version of Dark Souls, however the not-so-welcoming Games For Windows Live is still attached to the title.
Dark Souls: Artorias of the Abyss for consoles and Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition will include sprawling new maps and environments; new boss characters, enemies and non-playable characters; an arsenal of new weapons and armour; and additional challenging content for stalwart heroes to face as they return to the deadly world of Lordran.
Players will also experience an as yet untold chapter in Dark Souls lore set in the dying kingdom of magic known as Oolacile. Unwillingly taken by the abyss and sent back in time, the player becomes the only one who can save Oolacile from the spreading darkness that threatens to engulf the kingdom and all of its people.
The Prepare to Die Edition for PC will be available from retailers as well as Steam and Microsoft Marketplace from August 24th. Console version will be getting the DLC sometime after, however no date has yet been announced.
Both version of the new content will be using a match-making system for co-op or player vs. player gameplay, allowing gamers to showcase their skills against other Dark Souls players around the world.
