It’s the game series that can make you cry from its difficulty (surely it can’t just be us?) It’s Dark Souls, and the remaster of the original for now-gen consoles is in-store today.
Obviously this sprucing up of the acclaimed From Software action RPG delivers vastly improved visuals, but what else makes it worth returning to (or confronting for the first time?)
Well, several tweaks have been applied, including up to six-player online with easier friend matching (like in Dark Souls III).
There’s also a handy new bonfire, the ability to switch covenants at bonfires and being able to use multiples of any one item at once.
It may be incredibly challenging, and often frustrating, but if you’re up for it then Dark Souls truly is an amazing experience.
Dark Souls Remastered is available now for PS4 and Xbox One, with a Switch version due shortly.
