Dark Souls II will launch on April 25 for the PC


Dark Souls II will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next week, but those with the PC will have to wait an extra six weeks before they can play the sequel. In the game, you’ll be traveling again through a devastated world filled with death and despair, where only the strong can survive.

PC owners can pre-order the game or the Collector’s Edition right now via Steam, GameStop, Amazon or ClubNamco. It will include digital bonuses including an Official Digital Dark Souls II Artbook, Original Dark Souls II Digital Comic Book written by Rob Williams and Andi Ewington with art provided by Simon Coleby, the Complete Digital Game Soundtrack, and the Black Armor Weapons Pack.


The items in the Dark Souls II Black Armor Weapons Pack for PC include:

  • Black Flamestone Dagger and Black Flamestone Parma – A dagger and shield encrusted in Black Flamestone both found in the Gutter at Black Gulch. Even though they are heavier than a normal dagger and shield, the Flamestone crystal’s unique properties make the dagger extremely sharp and give the shield high resistance to damage.
  • Yellow Quartz Longsword and Yellow Quartz Shield – A straight sword and small shield hardened with yellow quartz both uncovered at the bottom of the Iron Keep. Even though these items can break easily due to their high level of corrosion, they are exceptionally light and their power to inflict damage has not declined.
  • Bound Hand Axe and Bound Wooden Shield – A brutal hand axe and shield found in the Undead Purgatory. Both items are wrapped in chains and thorns to cause additional bleeding on enemies. Both the axe and shield have diminished in overall slashing power but their ability to deliver pain has been deliberately increased.
  • Homunculus Mace and Homunculus Wooden Shield – A mace and shield with spherical protrusions found in Aldia’s Keep. Although heavier-than-normal maces and shields, the hard protrusions greatly increase the striking power of the mace as well as the shield’s defensive capabilities.
  • Transgressor’s Staff and Transgressor’s Leather Shield – A staff and leather shield entwined with an unknown and seemingly lackluster element; these items are found in the Dark Chasm of Old. They have become a catalyst for sorcery and hex, and they cause an effect known as Darkness.

The PC version of Dark Souls II will retail for $49,99, and the Dark Souls II PC Collector’s Edition will retail for $109.99 that will include a digital download code for the game, a collectible metal case, a 12” tall Warrior Knight figurine, exclusive hardbound art book, original game soundtrack, and cloth map while supplies last.
