Even though we still have to wait some more before we can play Cyberpunk 2077, there’s still some hope of playing something fresh. During a recent press conference, Bandai Namco’s CEO announced that Dark Souls the first would soon receive its remastered version.
Dark Souls Remastered – Better Graphics, Same Gameplay
When it comes to awesome graphics and nerve-wracking combat, probably the first name that pops into your mind is Dark Souls. Albeit not eye-candy like other triple-A RPG games out there, Dark Souls does have its allure – dark dungeons, brooding story, and foes that give you goose-bumps long after you’ve stopped playing the game.
Probably Dark Souls is the first RPG game out there, besides Gothic I, of course, which coined the adage ‘Git gud or die trying.’ Unfortunately, the game had a rather rough start.
Since it was a console exclusive title, the PC version available today is naturally a port. Granted that not all ported games are bad, but Dark Souls was not on this list. Choppy controls, too many action buttons, and the list goes on and on.
Up to this day, the only way one could fully enjoy the thrills of Dark Souls is by downloading and installing unofficial patches and fixes.
However, this will be the end of patching and tinker with the game. Bandai Namco CEO’s recently announced during a press conference that the game would receive its long overdue remaster version.
So, what does this exactly mean? The usual 4K and 60 FPS resolution support, top-notch graphics, and, of course, controls optimized for PC. Game-wise, the devs did not say anything, which makes assumed that the story and characters will remain the same.
The remastered version of Dark Souls is scheduled to hit the game market in late May.
