Dark Souls Remastered publisher pegs leaked 50% loyalty scheme as a mistake

For everyone else, the Dark Souls Remaster is being done up in the same engine as the third game, and will be launching on Xbox One, PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch near the end of March.

Of course the PC version of the game will be able to do everything listed above, but more importantly Dark Souls will be running in native 4K so players of the classically hard game can watch themselves die over and over as they progress through a much more lovely world. The first in the series of multi-platform Souls games still stands as a hallmark of From Software's stellar design - something the studio only perfected heading up to Dark Souls 3. Enhancements such as 4K resolution (on PS4 Pro and PC) and 60 FPS, on the other hand, are confirmed. In case of the Switch, when handheld, the game will run at 720p obviously at 30 FPS and when docked the game will support up to 1080p HD at 30 FPS. Rumours also suggest that both Dark Souls 2 and 3 will head to Switch sometime after that, so it's a good time to praise the sun. Not only is the Dark Souls trilogy box set exclusive to PS4, though, it's also exclusive to Japan. Dark Souls II producer Takeshi Miyazoe admitted that the game was rushed to get it out to players.

There are likely still some diehard Dark Souls fanatics that are disappointed that they won't have the opportunity to purchase the Dark Souls trilogy box set. All DLC is included in the package, including everything from the Prepare to Die Edition as well as the Artorias of the Abyss expansion, and online multiplayer now supports six players rather than just four.

Dark Souls was first released in 2011 and went on to become a cult smash that spawned two direct sequels and a host of imitators, ranging from Lords of the Fallen to Nioh.
