Xbox 360 and PS3 owners will soon have a reason to take Dark Souls off the shelf. Namco will be releasing the "Artorias of the Abyss" DLC pack this winter on consoles.
"Artorias" adds a new chapter to the game's campaign. A darkness in the forests of Ooolacile is threatening to swallow up the entire kingdom and it falls to the players to stop this menace. The new content features fresh areas, enemies, and items. Catch a glimpse of them in the screenshots below.
This DLC pack also includes more accessible form of player-versus-player content. A new matchmaking system will quickly find other competitors for 1v1, 2v2, and four-player free-for-alls. This bonus PvP feature should help you justify Artorias's $14.99 (1200 MS Points) price.
This new content won't be sold to PC gamers. Instead, they'll get it for no charge when the game hits that platform. The PC version, dubbed Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition, is due on August 24th. It'll be available through Steam and Games for Windows - LIVE.
Yes, that's right - the PC will be getting the DLC before consoles. That's a switch. I guess it's Namco's way of compensating PC gamers for the long wait they've had to endure to get Dark Souls.
