FromSoftware's original Dark Souls is getting a remaster later this year, letting everyone practice their rolling and get used to the unforgiving combat in high definition. The remaster is heading for PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. This would be the first time a game from the Souls series will be available on the Nintendo console, giving players the opportunity to praise the sun while on the go.
Aside from the upgraded visuals arriving with it, the remaster will be playable in 60fps at 4K resolution on PC, Xbox One X, and PlayStation 4 Pro. Bandai Namco did not say what the regular Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions' performance would be like, but did reveal that the Nintendo Switch version will be running on 1080p resolution at 30fps while docked.
The multiplayer functionality has been bolstered as well, allowing up to six players to join together in a single session for jolly cooperation, up from the maximum of three in the original. Moreover, the Artorias of the Abyss DLC will be included in the remaster for free.
Hopefully, the PC version won't be so rough around the edges as the original release was, which had to be fixed up for the most part by modders. In any case, the development of a remaster may also explain why the original Dark Souls has not seen any meaningful discounts in such a long time.
Dark Souls Remastered is scheduled to launch on May 25, giving everyone a chance to return to the lands of Lordran as the Chosen Undead.
