The extra content that was added to the Prepare to Die Edition of Dark Souls for PC, Artorias of the Abyss, has launched as DLC for 360 and PS3. The FromSoftware-developed expansion features a new quest that will see players setting out to battle the evils behind a darkness spreading from the forests of Oolacile, and a host of new content, including maps, bosses, enemies, weapons, and armor. The player vs. player component has also been improved, with gamers now able “to assemble battles against one another for all-out fights to the death.”
Dark Souls isn’t done with you quite yet. Namco Bandai has announced additional details about the upcoming DLC pack for FromSoftware’s action-RPG, Dark Souls: Artorias of the Abyss. The expansion will include a new chapter that will host new maps, environments, bosses, enemies, and non-playable characters. In the new adventure, players must venture out into the forests of Oolacile to investigate the origins of a darkness that is engulfing the lands. The pack will also include an online versus mode, pitting players against each other in matches of one versus one, two versus two, and four versus four.
