Prepare to die, as Dark Souls special edition heads to consoles

Release Date: 28/08/2012

When it was first released last year, few would have argued that Japanese RPG Dark Souls needed to be tougher. A ferociously daunting challenge, the game killed off players frequently but fairly. Each time you met another sticky end, you knew it was because you'd rushed into a situation or simply not paid attention to your surroundings.

Last week the game finally reached PC, in the frankly terrifying title Prepare To Die Edition, and publisher Namco Bandai has now confirmed that this special edition will also be released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 26th. Included in the Prepare To Die edition is Artorias of the Abyss, an all new gameplay chapter which introduces new bosses, weapons, quests and characters. Apparently it adds ten hours to the game, although you can probably triple that to accommodate all those deaths you'll be enjoying. If you already own the game, then the new content will be available to download instead.

Dark Souls was one of the most critically acclaimed games of 2011, nominated for multiple awards and featuring on almost every Game of the Year list of note. If you haven't tasted its brutal wonders, now is definitely the time.
