It would appear that owners of the Dark Souls 3 Season Pass on Xbox One can now download and play the game early. Players have been reporting in all over the internet that it works for them, but only in offline mode, and you can see streamers now starting to stream it across the internet. The DLC was slated to launch on the 25th of October, but Xbox One users have apparently lucked out. Unfortunately it seems it that PS4 and PC players aren’t quite as lucky, as no one has been able to get it to work on those platforms.
What is happening? After the many “issues” around the Dark Souls 3 launch, it’s hard to believe that the Dark Souls fan base could be alienated anymore than it already has been, but WOW, I guess we were wrong! Regardless, see the Ashes of Ariandel page for all the information you need about the DLC.
