Bandai Namco has revealed that three new chapters of DLC will be coming to Dark Souls II this summer. The first of the 3 DLC chapters is called Crown of the Sunken King and will be released on July 22nd.
Chris Gilbert of Bandai Namco said the following about the DLC:
“To say we are excited to unleash these three new chapters to Dark Souls II fans is an understatement,” said Chris Gilbert, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Bandai Namco Games America. “Bandai Namco Games is very proud of the universal praise and enjoyment fans have both given and received from Dark Souls 2. The Lost Crowns trilogy and more specifically the Crown of the Sunken King will kick off what will surely be an exciting summer of speculation and anticipation of the new battles, challenges and triumphs to come amongst our most ardent fans.”
The other two DLC chapters are called Crown of the Old Iron King and Crown of the Ivory King and will be released on August 26th and September 24th, respectively.
The chapters will cost $9.99 individually, but if you buy them all together you save $5. The DLC will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
I adore this series, so any excuse to jump back into it is fine with me. I’m wondering how lengthy these chapters will be, because 10 bucks a pop is pretty pricey. However, if they can deliver awesome gameplay then I’m all for it.
