Prepare to die in glorious 1080p at 60fps in Dark Souls: Remastered. Dark Souls: Remastered has just been announced via the Nintendo Direct Mini stream, confirming the game’s spot on the fastest selling console in US history. However, this rebuilt action role-playing game courtesy of From Software is coming to even more systems. The PlaySation 4, Xbox One, and PC will also receive the new and shiny Dark Souls re-release, allowing all current generation gamers to “Git Gud.”
Dark Souls: Remastered goes above the typical remaster, having every aspect reassembled within the Dark Souls 3 engine, ensuring a truly stunning visual experience. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will run the game at 1080p/60fps. Their beefy premium models, PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, will be able to push everything to an upscaled 4K/60fps. The Nintendo Switch will sport 1080p/30fps if it is docked. When in handheld mode, the framerate will remain the same, but the resolution will be cut down to 720p. Lastly, the PC version will be capable of outputting native 4K, 60fps, and it will utilize 2K textures. That very well make up for the lackluster port that was received in 2012.
Graphics aside, the game will house the Artorias of the Abyss DLC, a time-traveling expansion. More importantly, the maximum player count in multiplayer will be increased to six from the original limitation of four. That should create for some tense/hilarious situations. Add that in with Dark Souls: Remastered’s use of dedicated servers (instead of peer-to-peer) as well as Dark Souls 3’s password system and you have what is likely to be a much smoother online experience.
Dark Souls: Remastered will launch on all previously specified platforms on May 25th.
