We have everything going for Dark Souls II. The PR and community teams have been incredibly hard at work since the game was first revealed. They have been working like mad getting the game through the specialist and mainstream press channels.
Players who pre-ordered “Dark Souls 2” in advance get a free upgrade to the Black Armor Edition, which comes with several physical extras such as a steel book casing and official soundtrack. The Collector’s Edition, which is priced twice as much as the regular unit, contains an action figure, cloth map and more items.
Bandai Namco Games will be releasing the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of “Dark Souls 2” on March 11th. PC gamers will have to wait a little longer as the development team needed more time to polish the experience on personal computers. The same title won’t be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One next-generation systems.
