Dark Souls Remastered official artwork and logo

Dark Souls, my personal favorite game of all time, will be getting a remastered edition on May 25th for PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4, while the Switch version will be coming at some point this summer. In terms of content, Dark Souls Remastered will bring with it slightly improved visuals, better performance across the board, and perhaps most importantly, a smooth 60 fps even in the depths of Blighttown.

If you're curious about what the visual improvements are going to look like, you might be interested to hear that Bandai Namco has now released a brief gameplay trailer. You'll find the video right below, but I would advise tempering your expectations as the graphical upgrade appears to be quite subtle, which is to say I can barely notice the difference. Anyway, have a gander:

Bandai Namco has also announced that owners of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition on Steam will get a 50% discount towards the purchase of Dark Souls Remastered on PC. Additionally, the Steam version of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition will be de-listed on May 8th and replaced with Dark Souls Remastered once it launches on May 25th. Naturally, all owners of the Prepare to Die Edition will be able to continue downloading and playing it as usual, but all future players will need to go for the Remastered version.

Once more information gets revealed I'll make sure to cover it, but you can also keep an eye on Dark Souls Remastered by going over to the official website.
