Praise the sun all over again – Dark Souls Remastered to launch in May 2018

I was tempted to just post the announcement trailer, then a video of me running around my house Praising the Sun. Alas, I imagine that the gods of TiX wouldn’t be too amused by that!

Update: It seems that the much-loved site Fextralife, has been working with FromSoft on bug fixes and more. One bit of new information to come from this is that the Remaster will run on the Dark Souls 3 engine. Exciting news, I’d say!

So, here we are Chosen. Dark Souls is being remastered for the PC, Xbox One – with enhanced support, the PS4 – with Pro support, and the Nintendo freaking Switch. There isn’t too much information at this time, beyond the usual release date, which is May 25th, and marketing spiel, but the below image has found its way onto Discord. It shows, in the most basic form, some of the improvements to come. The one that stands out for me is “dedicated game servers”, what a great move by FromSoft and Bandai Namco.

Developed by FromSoftware Inc., DARK SOULS: REMASTERED allows players to explore the twisted ancient land of Lordran in the first title of the critically acclaimed action role-playing series like never before. Experience the rich world of DARK SOULS in upscaled 4K resolution with 60FPS when playing on a PlayStation 4 Pro system, Xbox One X, and PC. Also, 1080p resolution with 30FPS is available when playing the game on Nintendo Switch with its TV mode.

From their first timid steps to absolute mastery, players will build their characters by strategically adapting to daunting foes, exploring haunting locations, and amassing a large collection of weapons, armour and magic spells to utilise for a truly unique playstyle. Hidden in the world of DARK SOULS: REMASTERED are nine online covenants to uncover that will motivate your online interactions. Collaboration or confrontation, support or betrayal – which allegiance will you choose? Up to six players can join together online to help or hurt, each other throughout their quest.

As a long-time Dark Souls player, I’d say that Dark Souls is so much more than the above quote provided by Bandai Namco. Also, I know there are some Dark Souls players hidden within the TiX staff…. I’ll hold this thought for now. Keep your eyes locked to TiX, and you may see some Dark Souls content in the leading up to the launch of Dark Souls: Remastered. I wonder if Rob Mafia is up for some narration?….

A new addition to the series is “Battle Art” attacks, which will enable you to deliver stronger attacks to break down your enemies defences and destroy them, each weapon is equipped with its own unique Battle Art.
