Dark Souls: Remastered Announced for May Release on Xbox One

Dark Souls: Remastered will be out May 25, 2018 for PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.

While nothing was detailed about the upcoming remaster, the trailer does show some updated graphics as an armored figure -presumably, the player's character - ignites one of the game's many bonfires in the game's hub location, the Firelink Shrine. The Remastered version of the game will include the expansion, "Artorias of the Abyss".

Some people may balk at a game like Dark Souls being put on the otherwise family-friendly Nintendo Switch, but considering the console already has games like Doom on it, that's not so far-fetched anymore. This studio will reportedly utilize Dark Souls 3 technology when upgrading the original game's lighting and effects. We would love for Nintendo fans to try out the excellent series as well.

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.

Lastly, what helps tie both of these together is that both indicate that Dark Souls Remastered will be arriving in May.

It's Dark Souls news day! Well, contrary to the Bioshock remasters, Dark Souls Remastered will be a separate product. The report claims part of the reason why the two will be announced separately (other than timing) is because a different company will be handling the Switch port. With this in mind, I wonder how much Dark Souls: Remastered can improve what many PC players now enjoy as standard. Let us know by commenting in the comments section below.
