How many people will honestly finish Dark Souls II? It’s not that I doubt you all, but realistically speaking, it just isn’t a game that many will complete. However, there will be extra content for those who are looking for more.
In a new video, From Software shows off the trilogy of DLC collectively named the Lost Crowns trilogy. In it, players will seek to reclaim the crowns of Drangleic’s King Vendrick. Check out this pretty video:
Episode One, Crown of the Sunken King, will be available at the end of July, followed by Crown of the Old Iron King (end August) and Crown of the Ivory King (end September). Players can also opt to purchase a Season Pass to get the full trilogy. According to the video descriptors:
Crown of the Sunken King features an entirely different world within the DARK SOULS II universe, where stepped pyramids span a vast underground cavern. It is said that one of the ancient crowns lay buried deep within these dark caverns; but surely such a valued item cannot sit unguarded. Players that seek adversity and glory will be rewarded with a crown that holds the strength of lords from times long past.
There is a lot to be excited about in this DLC. It shows of some beautiful new areas, crazy new enemies (those poison statues can move now) and an opportunity for Dark Souls fans to get more content. It will certainly be a must-play for those interested in an experience that’s closer to the original, complete with praying to dragon murals.
I don’t need to tell you all that DLC irritates me. I wish these were included in the original games, and I definitely believe that those who purchase Collector’s Editions should automatically get the Season Pass. However, it’s great to see more added to this world, even if most players won’t manage to complete the original game. I just hope there are opportunities in the underground caverns to still praise the sun.
