As someone who has purposefully avoided all things Dark Souls II until last week when I got a discounted Collector’s Edition, in my few hours spent with the game it is quite remarkable in its dedication to the Souls series. To have not one, but 3 DLC packs coming in the future for the title shows that From Software knew they had a success on their hands from Day 1, unlike their release of the original Dark Souls.
Dark Souls II is already available on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. “The Lost Crowns” DLC looks to be released over the summer, starting with “Crown of the Sunken King” on July 22nd. You can expect my “Afterthoughts” review of Dark Souls II sometime after the hysteria that is E3 2014.
