Namco Bandai Games Europe / Namco Bandai Partners (ANZ Region) have today announced that the enhanced PC port of Dark Souls entitled “Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition” is now available at retailers across Australia and New Zealand. This is a content-enhanced edition of FROM Software’s original Playstation 3 / XBox360 release which provides a wealth of further gaming opportunities, gameplay enhanced for the PC and many more opportunities to have your character killed by the environment and its inhabitants (Including a PvP Mode).
Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition will include sprawling new maps and environments; new boss characters, enemies and non-playable characters; an arsenal of new weapons and armour; and additional challenging content for stalwart heroes to face as they return to the deadly world of Lordran.
Players will also experience an as yet untold chapter in Dark Souls lore set in the dying kingdom of magic known as Oolacile. Unwillingly taken by the abyss and sent back in time, the player becomes the only one who can save Oolacile from the spreading darkness that threatens to engulf the kingdom and all of its people.
A day one edition of the game has been released, and features an artbook containing artwork from the new Artorias of the Abyss content, original soundtrack CD, a DVD containing the complete behind the scenes video series, a poster and postcards. A later release of this game will be made to the XBox360 and Playstation 3 from the 25th October 2012.
