Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin trailer highlights upcoming additions

Need a crash course on what exactly is going on in Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin? Then you need to watch this trailer.


Namco Bandai announced Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin would be making its spring debut on last-gen and current gen consoles this spring. The original Dark Souls II will be receiving a major patch starting tomorrow, and today, Namco Bandai has released a new trailer that highlights all that’s coming for all players.

If you’ve been keeping up with the upcoming changes, much of what you’ll see will seem like old news. But there are a few differences, such as a Pursuer being places along with a pair of Ogres within the game’s starting area and a new Black Phantom. It also appears a Flexile Sentry will be causing havoc in the flooded area of the Sinner’s Rise.

If you own the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC versions of Dark Souls 2, tomorrow will be the day you can experience all of these changes and more. As for those waiting for Scholar of the First Sin, you’ll need to wait until April 7 to experience not only the core Dark Souls 2 experience, but its three expansions, too.

      You guys really need that "import an existing chatty thread" feature, huh?

        In the gamefly days, it seemed like there were tons of first time users posting in the front page comments. I sometimes see stories in here that fall off the first page of chatty and get zero comments. I try to post in the staff's sorties when they pertain to my interests, but it is surprising to see low engagement when I think they must be getting front page views. Does membership need to be featured in some new way to get new peeps in here?? I don't know how it works :(

          I've bumped a few out of sympathy myself, felt like the right thing to do.

          I always wondered if the moving the comments off the frontpage made for less hits. But, I understand why they did it, at least until they can make them look prettier in an article

            Oh I forgot it was more visible like that (because I visit the front page so infrequently).

      Doesn't look like there are any graphical lighting upgrades
