Dark Souls III Digital Pre-Orders Are Live, Bandai Namco Lists Platform Bonuses



With an April release date fast approaching, Dark Souls III is now available to pre-order digitally across all platforms, and each version comes packing its own bonus.

Bandai Namco has confirmed that those who pre-order From Software’s RPG sequel on PlayStation 4 will be entitled to a digital copy of the game’s soundtrack and along with the Fire Fades dynamic theme. The latter of which will be available from the get-go, though Bandai notes that the soundtrack won’t go live until launch. PC owners, meanwhile, will be able to claim a $5 discount from Dark Souls III should you already own both Dark Souls I and II. It’s a similar story for the Dark Souls III soundtrack, too.


Arguably the most enticing bonus of the bunch, however, can be found on Xbox One, where digital pre-orders unlock a free copy of the original Dark Souls through the console’s backwards compatibility feature. According to Bandai Namco, orders will be fulfilled between 7-10 days after you place the orders, so keep your peepers peeled on your Xbox message center should you decide to put down money ahead of time.

Arriving in multiple SKUs, the Deluxe Edition of Dark Souls III will set you back $84.99, but includes the game’s Season Pass. As for the standard edition, it’ll be priced at $59.99 come April 12.

Prepare to welcome the Lords of Cinder – for better or worse – when Dark Soul III looms over PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on April 12.
