From Software’s latest adventure into methodical dark fantasy combat is about to get bigger. Reports out of Japan suggest that Dark Souls III is about to get DLC.

The information first showed up in weekly Japanese gaming magazines according to Siliconera. The site reports that two DLC packs are incoming, priced at ¥1,200 ($12), with a “season pass” bundle of both for ¥2,000 ($20). 

The images reportedly show new weapons, a snow-covered environment, and a new PVP map called “Immortal Competition.” The first DLC add-on will be out on October 26 in Japan for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Our Take
While we're labeling this report, it's because we haven't laid eyes on the information ourselves (though Siliconera is absolutely trustworthy). I suspect that we'll see a Western release in short order, if not simultaneously.
