If you’re a fan of the hardest game ever made, you’re probably a fan of the follow up to the hardest game ever made – Why do I call it that? I played 10 minutes of it and wanted to chew my own hands off! Anyway, it’s no secret that Dark Souls 2 will be hitting the Xbox One on the 3rd of April as a ‘GOTY Edition’ with all the DLC, and mod cons that the 360 edition is going to have.

Next month sees the 360 edition of Dark Souls 2 get an enormous free patch to prepare for the Scholar of the First Sin DLC, which is out alongside the release of the Xbox One version of the game. This patch sees a number of big changes in the game including, but not limited to:

-New character, The Scholar of the First Sin.

-Choosing to enter the Covenant of Champions will now allow enemies to continue to respawn after being defeated.

-The Agape Ring. When players equip the new Agape Ring, souls collected from kills during online play will be absorbed by the ring rather than the player. This allows players to control their online matchmaking experience by limiting their total souls collected.

-Awestones now dropped more often

– Increased effect of Rusted Coin.

There are many more tweaks and updates, far too many to list here so if you want to see the full list of updates go to the Namco Bandi’s blog post where everything is listed, including the times of release for each region.

The patch is set to fly out on the 5 February. Dark Souls 2 invades the Xbox One on the 3 April.
