Bandai Namco has good news and bad news for all of you Dark Souls fans. The good news: the company recently reactivated the online features of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin for PC (DX11). The bad news: the company also announced that they will not be able to support online services for Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition for PC because of “an aging system.”

Similarly, the online features for Dark Souls: Remastered will also be reactivated for PC at a later date. Dark Souls III saw its online features restored in August.
