Yesterday’s Nintendo Direct announcement of Dark Souls Remastered was a relief for fans craving some Souls-style action in 2018 that anime vampires might not have satisfied. The game is now available for pre-orders, and that means we know how much it will cost.
Dark Souls Remastered is listed as $40 for all platforms — and yes, that means there will be no Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin-type discount for PC players.
If you remember, back when the enhanced version of Dark Souls II was released, PC players who already owned Dark Souls II received a discount when upgrading to Scholar of the First Sin, with an even greater discount of they owned the DLC. Unfortunately, no such discount will be available for Dark Souls Remastered, as confirmed by publisher Bandai Namco.
Still, the upgrade seems worth it, especially if you have the right equipment. The PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One X enhancements include 4K visuals (native on PC, upscaled on console), and all versions (besides the Switch) will boast a silky smooth frame-rate of 60 fps and 1080p resolution. Speaking of, the Switch version will support 1080p in TV mode and 720p in handheld mode, with a frame-rate of 30 fps.
Dark Souls Remastered will launch for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on May 25th.
