Dark Souls 2 announces a crowning DLC trilogy
I get that Dark Souls II hasn’t been out for long, but already an entire trilogy has been announced. The Lost Crowns will take a gander at new areas, new challenges, new foes, and of course – new bosses. A whole brand new arenas to die over and over again in; I can’t wait! So next month, July 22nd, the first of this series will be released – Crown of the Sunken King. The next episode, Crown of the Old Iron King will be released August 26th, and the final Crown of the Ivory King on September 24th.
In these DLC episodes, you’ll be journeying to reclaim all the crowns previously owned by King Vendrick. These crowns are relics of lords from a long time passed. Will we see familiar characters? Shades of lords we once knew? I can’t wait to find out. Since Dark Souls II revolves around cycles, I’d say it’s quite possible.
“To say we are excited to unleash these three new chapters to Dark Souls II fans is an understatement.” said Chris Gilbert, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. “BANDAI NAMCO Games is very proud of the universal praise and enjoyment fans have both given and received from Dark Souls II. The Lost Crowns trilogy and more specifically the Crown of the Sunken King will kick-off what will surely be an exciting summer of speculation and anticipation of the new battles, challenges, and triumphs to come amongst our most ardent fans.”
If you loved yourself some Dark Souls II, you should be jumping out of your seat right now. I still stand by the claim that Artorias of the Abyss ranks up there for one of the best DLCs ever for a game. Let’s hope that can be repeated in the sequel. Enjoy the tease trailer above!
