The lights are on
Namco Bandai today confirmed a PC port of the game. The publisher said the online petition, which has almost 100,000 signatures, played a major part in the decision to port the game. The team originally had no plans to do a PC version.
In the first three months, the game sold 1.3 million units and shipped 1.5 million.
The Prepare to Die edition includes:
New Bosses - Including Artorias of Abyss, Chimera of Tomb, and more
PVP Online Matchmaking System - Quick matching for co-op or PVP
New Areas – Including Oolacile Tomb, Old Ruins and more
New Enemies – Including Abyss Guard, Chained Prisoner and more
New NPCs – Including Hawkeye Gough and more
New Weapons and Armor – Equip some from the new bosses, enemies, and NPCs
If this new content comes out as dlc for consoles, I'll be a happy camper.
Yeah, they should seriously release this as DLC content. I'd be equally surprised and irritated if they didn't. :/
I just hope they release this for the consoles as well. I will be ticked if not.
I am very excited for this because i play xbox and playstation games but i have always enjoyed the pc because it has the hardware to power a much more intense game than any console of today. Thats why im a little concerned. I love that they are making it for pc and that they are putting new stuff into the game but my question is will they update the graphics. I loved the graphics on xbox360 for this game but there were a few areas that at times the frame rate would drop dramaticly. So what im getting at is will they do a graphical touch up. The only real reason i see for it to be on pc is if it is to harness the power of what a pc can do.
Looks like I'm picking this up for PC now too haha! I actually might like it better. Although I do love my console version and need to get back to playing that pronto.
I have to wonder, is this new content being released to the 360 and PS3 as DLC? I'd absolutely pay for it if they did, but I won't buy a new version. I've put 200+ hours into my characters, not going to drop them completely for a new set of bosses.
Neat. I may finally play it.
I guess its been obvious for awhile but its great to finally be able to know for sure. It's just awesome how Namco and FromSoftware listened to their fans and made this happen. If this doesn't do outstandingly well on PC I'll buy two copies, because I'm just that flamboyant over the Souls franchise and to great fan service such as this. I have no doubt this will do crazily well on PC though, it just makes sense.
They should make the new stuff a DLC for consoles, I mean we pay more for console version because we didn´t know there was going to be a pc version, and on top of that they make the pc version better.If I knew it was coming to pc I would have waited...
So.. Your saying, I get to throw my laptop against the wall now too! I'm there! haha
This is still great news, I'll almost certainly pick this up now :)
anyone else think its total BS they havent announced this new content for CONSOLE?????
I hope this content comes out on the PS3 version as some sort of patch or DLC
