Bandai Namco announced the re-release of the game Dark Souls

We will be able to experience Dark Souls in upscaled 4K resolution with 60FPS when playing on a PlayStation 4 Pro system, Xbox One X, and PC. It's a trilogy that is industry defining, and Japan is getting a suitably stunning box set to celebrate just that.

The original Dark Souls, for some fans, remains arguably the best entry in SoulsBorne series. And while it wasn't immediately clear if the box set would be released outside Japan, publisher Bandai Namco has weighed in on that front, and the news isn't good for Dark Souls fans.


Once Dark Souls Remastered releases on May 25, PS4 and Xbox One owners can own the entire trilogy on a single console, as it joins Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin and Dark Souls 3: The Fires Fade Edition, which are already available. The game will run at 1080p in docked mode, 720p in handheld mode and will always run at 30 FPS, which is definitely disappointing. PC versions of the game will feature native 4K, all textures 2K unconverted with 60 fps.

Looking forward to Dark Souls Remastered or are you in "Remaster Demon's Souls First" camp? However, the game is yet to be released on current hardware, save for backward compatibility on the Xbox One. It will still be punishingly tough. The project appears on multiple platforms including PC, called Dark Souls: Remastered. VaatiVidya, who is known for creating SoulsBorne lore videos, took it to Twitter and claimed that the remastered version would use Dark Souls III engine assets, HDR lightning, and a few other enhancements for PS4 Pro version. It was ported to PC in 2012. Dark Souls Remastered is the latest in the trend of critically acclaimed remastered games.
