Namco Bandai today announced the Dark Souls: Artorias of the Abyss DLC pack for Dark Souls, ahead of E3. The DLC pack will be available this winter in Europe and Australasia for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 via PSN.
Namco Bandai also today revealed further details about the PC version of the game, Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition, which will be available for purchase in Europe and Australasia at retailers and through Steam and Microsoft Marketplace from August 24th. The exclusive European retail version of the title will include a stunning 150 page art book featuring art from the new Artorias of the Abyss game content. Alongside this fan must-have comes the original soundtrack CD, a DVD containing the complete behind the scenes video series, poster and postcards, making it an essential addition for any Dark Souls fan.
Separate retail editions of the Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition will be coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this winter, with the retail pack content to be confirmed soon.
Dark Souls: Artorias of the Abyss for consoles and 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.
