The Original PC Version of Dark Souls Is Offline Permanently | Biden News


FromSoftware has announced that the PC servers for Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition have been offline permanently, although the Remastered version will still be restored.

Also confirming that Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin’s PC servers are back online after ten months, FromSoftware said in a tweet (below) that the infrastructure of the original Dark Souls is simply too old to be supported at this point

“We have determined that we will not be able to support online services for the PC version of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition, which was released in 2012, due to an aging system,” it said. “We apologize for the long wait and ask for your understanding on this matter.”

Dark Souls: Remastered will be up and running again eventually, although it’s still unclear exactly when FromSoftware will restore its servers after a serious exploit – which allowed other players to take over the user’s computer – caused all three games to be taken offline in January.

FromSoftware has released incremental updates since then and reset the Dark Souls 3 servers in August. Now that the Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin servers are back online, FromSoftware’s attention should turn to restoring Dark Souls: Remastered, although it’s unclear whether it will focus on this or the base version of Dark Souls 2 first .

Since the original exploit came out just a month before the developer released Elden Ring, fans looking forward to the game were worried that it would affect its multiplayer components. Fortunately, however, Elden Ring was able to launch without major problems and became an incredible success.

It did have to deal with some hacking issues though, after a notorious Dark Souls hack appeared in Elden Ring and forced illegal items into players’ inventories, causing them to be banned. Even weirder, the game’s secret underwear has also been used by trolls to ban other players.
