Dark Souls 3 season pass and backwards compatible original game details leak

Dark-Souls-3

Of course Dark Souls 3 is getting a season pass. Of course it is. Far be it for me to judge anyone for spending upwards of a grand on the most punishing gameplay around, as I usually drop more than that on a visit to Madame Whipley’s house of pain every week. In addition to the regular Dark Souls experience, a season pass was leaked on the Australian Xbox Store.

According to the page which has now been taken down (via Reddit), the season pass would have given players access to two DLC packs that will include new maps, enemies, bosses and additional adventuring gear in the armour and weapons department. There’s no price yet on that DLC, which is normally discounted in the season pass, as is the norm for most Xbox One games these days.

Here’s something that also needs to be confirmed: Pre-order Dark Souls and you’ll get the first game for free on Xbox One backwards compatibility. Listed on the Australian Xbox Store as well (THAT’S NOT A LEAK! THIS IS A LEAK!), were details for a digital purchase of Dark Souls 3 earning players the original game.

It’s a nice touch, for players who most likely already played the first Dark Souls, screamed at it and traded it in for a R50 credit which was then used to purchase an older Assassin’s Creed game. Probably. Still, more Dark Souls numero uno is good news for any fans who want to go back to the beginning of the series roots.

Dark Souls 3 is out April 12 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Conveniently, so is my revolutionary new technology that will prevent you from Bataranging your controller through the TV screen. And yes, it is a glorified bungee cord that I made sound advanced by suffixing it with the number “3000” at the end.

  1. Wow, that’s awesome…The first one is still the best in the series, imo. One of my all time favorite games.

    I heard that, just like SFV, the SP story will be released later.

      They’re clever, they release it through a series of cryptic Reddit threads and Wikia articles. “Oh, they think beating the game is hard? Let’s see if they figure out the story!”

        That’s probably why Namco offered $10k to anyone who can explain the story to them.

        I used to pull the same crap when I ran D&D games, would just throw in some random stuff along with the story & laugh inside as they went off on tangents, sometimes for hours, trying to figure it out. Spoiler: There wasn’t anything to figure out, you got DMTrolled.

    *Obligatory rip on the ‘hidden’ story. Will the game come with access to wikipedia for those who want to discuss what is/isn’t the story? Tralalala!

    My first reaction to Dark Souls 3 was i beaten Bloodborne, i am not going trough that punishment ever again. Then i started messing around in Bloodborne for a couple of hours and i saw that i “only” need a few trophies for platinum, thus the punishment started again.

    Now i am thinking how hard could DS3 realllyyy be ? #SuckerForMorePunishment

      I was about 2/3 through Dark Souls before I got distracted, was looking at it the other day thinking should I finish it, but then I remembered I’d have to learn how to play it all over again, so uninstalled it & moved on instead.

        Yeah those were cool, just wish it wasn’t quite so painful to get back to them when you lost.

        Didn’t mind dying in a boss fight, it was the having to repeat the last hour’s worth of game to get back there, fighting the same enemies the same way so as not to die again that made it feel like a chore sometimes.

            There are, but it doesn’t help the first few times.

            Not that many in the first DS. I ran from the bonfire to the boss battle in that game, ignoring as many enemies as possible. Especially the final boss

            There are tons of shortcuts in Dark Souls, and most all of the boss runs can be cut down to almost nothing

        • Hammersteyn

          February 16, 2016 at 10:02

          The fixed that in later installments. In Bloodbourne you unlock gates or lower ladders so that you can get to the boss quicker from your last spawn point

            I get my Rage full on with that game, i always though people swearing at inanimate objects to be well over the nest and all, that is till i caught myself doing just that.

    You are not a gamer unless you beat it with one hand tied behind your back and a toaster as a controller.
