We meet again, Chosen among the Undead.
Today marks the start of a new age for Dark Souls. As with every age, there are those who greet it with reservation, and those who greet it with joy. Whichever you may be, you are well-met at our bonfire.
Dark Souls: Remastered allows you to return to an ancient world sinking inexorably into darkness as the Age of Fire dies. The same gameplay and challenge that defined a genre, but running at 60 fps and Dynamic 4k resolution (yes, even in Blighttown).
While the majority of Dark Souls' gameplay has been preserved as it was when first we met this darkening world, there are a few notable exceptions, mainly in the introduction of the online password system; improved graphics, lighting, and environmental effects; and the expanded PvP and Co-Op modes, allowing up to six players to join together in cooperation or head-to-head combat.
Those who have been adherents to the flame since days of yore and own the Prepare to Die edition of Dark Souls can upgrade to this new version at half the standard price, as a token of our thanks for your support.
And with that, we welcome you back to Lordran.Additional note: We have flagged some issues with occasional drops in FPS that some players have raised. We are currently working on a correction to this problem, and we will inform you the moment that a solution is available. Thank you for your kind patience.
