Dark Souls Remaster Releasing May 2018
The acclaimed original Dark Souls, set in the land of Lordran and originally released in 2011, will be seeing a release to next generation consoles – coming to Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, PCand Xbox One on May 25th 2018
Bandai Namco has released a trailer for “Dark Souls Remastered”, providing some details on box art. There will be further details on this edition coming soon, but for now you should know that FromSoftware has been working on fixing known issues, bugs and exploits since 2016, with a little help from Fextralife 😉
Clarifying since people get ahead of themselves: We are not confirming different mechanics (besides 6 players) or specifics on the game itself. Bandai Namco says The Dark Souls remaster will not use new assets from dks3.
Original communications on the project cited Dark Souls 3 graphics style revamps, but we have removed their mention to avoid user confusion regarding mechanics. For everyone’s peace of mind, The Official website reads: “We are keeping the game design with its overwhelming sense of accomplishment and maintaining game balance, whilst making adjustments for current generation machines such as graphic optimization and online multiplayer expansion”
- The remake runs at 1080p on the PS4 and Xbox One with 60 FPS.
- Native 4k resolution on PC
- Remaster renders upscaled 4K on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One.
- The remaster will feature up to 6 player online, like Dark Souls 3.
- The multiplayer now has dedicated game servers rather than p2p
- The remaster includes the DLC Artorias of the Abyss
