Dark Souls II Revives Online Features for PC

Killing demons and collecting souls in Dark Souls II.

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.”

For those unfamiliar, Scholar of the First Sin is a special version of the original game that includes the various DLC. The base game of Dark Souls II is expected to have its online features reactivated for PC (DX9) at a later date. 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.

Dark Souls II is also available for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Daunted by the prospect of stepping into the series?
