Dark Souls 2 'Crown of the Old Iron King' DLC available today

Bandai Namco is pouring on the death today in Dark Souls 2, with a brutal new DLC chapter available for the game on PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and Steam.

In Crown of the Old Iron King, the second chapter in the Lost Crowns trilogy you'll run across an array of new environments, enemies, traps and bosses as you attempt to recover King Vendrick's lost crowns. You'll fight your way through a huge tower surrounded by black mist, having to contend with whatever enemies lurk inside. Good luck with that.

The content is available now for $9.99, or, if you subscribe to the Steam Season Pass (which costs $24.99), you can download it for free. That's a small price to pay for some sweet, sweet death.

Yes, you will die. Just accept it.
