Dark Souls II: Crown of the Old Iron King DLC Released

Namco Bandai sent us a press release to confirm what some of you probably already knew: the second DLC for Dark Souls II, Crown of the Old Iron King, has been released. The only caveat I have to add, before quoting the press release, is that European PlayStation 3 users will have to wait until tomorrow to play the DLC, as that's when Sony's store updates.

Let's just hope the DDoS attacks will be sorted out by then:


Forget about the regular obstacles, enemies, and bosses presented in DARK SOULSâ„¢ II; FromSoftware today releases Crown of the Old Iron King, the second chapter in its The Lost Crowns DLC trilogy for DARK SOULS II. Each chapter is specifically designed to enhance, challenge, and bring players to their knees as they experience the peril that is awaiting them in the DARK SOULS II The Lost Crowns trilogy.

Unfaltering fans of DARK SOULSâ„¢ II will immediately head over to the PlayStation®Network, Xbox Live Marketplace, or STEAM to get this newest chapter in the unyielding DARK SOULS franchise. Gamers that are heroic enough to take on this grueling odyssey will find new environments, enemies, traps, and bosses to conquer as they embark on a journey to reclaim the crowns that Drangleic's King Vendrick once owned. Crown of the Old Iron King features an entirely different world within the DARK SOULSâ„¢ II universe, where players will venture into a massive tower swamped by black mist where flames, smoke and sorcery sadistically lurk.

DARK SOULSâ„¢ II's Crown of the Old Iron King DLC is available today. Each individual chapter of The Lost Crowns trilogy will be available for purchase in Europe and Australasia via the PlayStation®Network, Xbox Live Marketplace, and STEAM®. The STEAM and PlayStation®Network season passes encompassing all three chapters of The Lost Crowns trilogy are also available!
