Bandai Namco and From Software announced that they have some new DLC on the way for Dark Souls III starting this fall. Details on the DLC are sketchy but there will be two packs in total that make up for the $25 season pass, and they will contain new weapons, armor sets, bosses and areas to explore.
GameSpot is reporting that the the first of the two expansions will likely contain new maps, enemies, weapon sets, armor sets and bosses. They note that the first expansion will be available this fall. It's likely that the second expansion will arrive sometime by spring of 2017 given the time span of releases, but we can't know for sure until Bandai Namco makes it official.
GameSpot notes that the two expansions may be sold separately outside of the Dark Souls III season pass, but they don't have any verification on that from Bandai, nor do they have any pricing details.
However, there is a quote from Bandai Namco about what games can expect from the season pass, stating...
Challenge yourself with new maps, bosses, enemies, and additional weapon and armor sets. Prepare yourself once more and embrace the darkness.
The game has already become a hot topic amongst gamers who really seem to enjoy the harshness of the environment and the unwavering difficulty that comes with it. Dark Souls III doesn't pull any punches as far as challenge is concerned; players will have to utilize their wits and reflexes to out-live their seemingly undead and ghastly foes.
While Dark Souls III has its established fandom on the Xbox One and PS4, the PC crowd is a little bit miffed at the fact that they haven't been able to enjoy the game to its fullest since launch. There's a rather nasty bonfire bug that has prevented gamers from enjoying the full extent of the content. Essentially when players go to save their games at the bonfire checkpoints, the game will crash and kick them out.
An interim fix was discovered when players realized that turning the lighting settings down to low would allow players to approach the bonfire and save their game. Others also recognized that wearing a full helmet to cover your character's head will also help fix the problem as well. The makeshift fixes aren't 100% full proof. Many still say that they are having problems with the game and the bonfire crashes, but thankfully Bandai Namco has announced that they will fix the game as soon as possible on PC.
Hopefully that gets ironed out rather quickly, and most definitely before they even think about releasing any DLC.
Then again, if the release window is to be believed, then we can expect to see the first pack arriving no sooner than this fall.
In the meantime, you can explore the dark and foreboding lands of Dark Souls III on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Gamers are still trying to uncover all of the game's secrets, story elements and armor and weapon sets. You can pick up a digital or physical copy of the game right now for home consoles or PC.
