From Software has released a patch for the PC version of Dark Souls 2 that fixes a particularly irritating bug which degraded your weapons at ridiculous rates when you struck enemy corpses or environmental objects.

Weapon durability mechanics are, of course, unforgivable at the best of times, but this bug made the issue much, much worse - the decrease rate was tied to your frame rate, which meant if you were running a 60FPS game all your hard-earned magical swords would snap like kindling if you so much as stumbled against a door.

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.
