It seems that my time with Dark Souls isn’t quite done yet. Earlier today, Bandi Namco announced that there will be a trilogy of DLC available for Dark Souls II entitled The Lost Crowns, releasing as early as next month.
The first episode, Crown of the Sunken King, will be available on July 22nd, sending noble undead to claim King Vendrick’s crown from an underground pyramid. On August 26th, we’ll be searching for the Crown of the Old Iron King, and the Crown of the Ivory King will round out the story on September 24th.
It does feel a bit strange to have DLC released this soon after launch for a Soul’s game, but I’ve personally got no problem with it. I’ve lost countless hours to Dark Souls II so far, and while the game definitely feels complete on its own, I’m very eager to see where the franchise takes us on the July 22nd when the first piece of DLC releases.
Check out the trailer below and let us know if you’re ready for some more Dark Souls II.
