The game will be released on October 26th and includes the original Dark Souls along with the Artorias of the Abyss expansion. This additional content features around 10 hours’ worth of new gameplay, including new areas to explore and bosses to fight.

Here’s a breakdown of the new content in the Prepare to Die Edition:

  • New Bosses – Including Black Dragon, Sanctuary Guardian, Artorias of the Abyss.

  • PVP Arena & Online Matchmaking System – Quick matching for players to play 1vs1, 2vs2 and 4 player battle royal.

  • New Areas – Including Oolacile Township, Oolacile Sanctuary, Royal Wood, Battle of Stoicism which is the training ground for online PVP battles.

  • New Enemies – Including Wooden Scarecrows, Chained Prisoner, Stone Knight.

  • New NPCs – Including Hawkeye Gough, Elizabeth (keeper of the sanctuary).

  • New Weapons and Armor – Equip some from the new bosses, enemies, and NPCs

Unfortunately players who already own Dark Souls on consoles will have to wait until winter before the Artorias of the Abyss DLC is available as a separate purchase from the PlayStation Store and Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
