Prepare to die with PC edition of Dark Souls

Dark Souls

PC gamers have been petitioning for a port of Dark Souls in recent months, and now it looks like the group’s collective effort has been rewarded. The aptly named Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition will be coming to North America on August 24.

All core components of the console versions will remain in tact, and an “enhanced PVP mode” will make an appearance. According to the press release, this new mode will “[allow] players to more closely assemble battles against one another online.”

Improved PVP isn’t the only new content being introduced to the PC version of Dark Souls. The team at developer FromSoftware has also come up with a new chapter titled “Artorias of the Abyss.” This will include additional environments, enemies, and bosses.

Hidetaka Miyazaki, creative director at FromSoftware, commented on how his company felt compelled to adhere to fans’ influential pleas regarding a PC port of Dark Souls.

“Our fans demanded to see this game brought to the PC, and the noise they have made was simply too loud and too passionate to ignore,” he said. “This also allowed us to dive back into the world of Dark Souls, offering a special edition of the game that offers more ways to die over and over again than ever before.”

Many people took issue with the recent Mass Effect 3 ending petition, but here’s a case where the videogame community’s passion proved exemplary. Now Dark Souls fans will have an opportunity to curse at their computer monitors rather than televisions.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
