Dark Souls 2 will get a heftynext month in preparation for the release of Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, the forthcoming enhanced edition which packs up all the currently available DLC.
Available on February 5, the free patch adds a new character, the mysterious Scholar of the First Sin himself, and a raft of other additions and fixes.
If information gathered from a recent Steam database update is anything to go by, there maybe be some more DLC on the way for action RPG Dark Souls 2.
Reddit user Jersam15 discovered some interesting lines of code mentioning "testdlc4", which would make sense considering that the last expansion, Crown of the Ivory King, was called "testdlc3" in the database.
Crown of the Ivory King, the final entry in a trilogy of DLC for Dark Souls 2, is out now . Time to travel to a frozen wasteland and find all-new ways to get stabbed by things.
The DLC was originally set for a September 24 release, but was subsequently delayed on PC and consoles.
Crown of the Ivory King, the third and last chapter of Dark Souls 2's Lost Crown DLC trilogy, has been a week on all formats.
The winter-themed add-on was originally expected to launch on September 24, but it will now hit PC and consoles on September 30.
Dark Souls 2's last chapter of DLC, Crown of the Ivory King, is out this month, and From Software has released a new set of screens showing the wintery landscapes players will be exploring.
This is the first time we've really seen a snowy environment in a Souls game (apart from a tiny bit in the Painted World of Ariamis). It's a nice visual change for the franchise.
