Dark Souls 2 Gets Colossal Patch
Filed under: DARK SOULS 2

The latest (rather massive) update for Dark Souls 2 (v1.08) brings an staggering amount of changes and fixes and is also laying the ground for the release of the Crown of the Sunken King DLC (slated for July 22).

Here's how Namco Bandai describes the DLC: "The Crown of the Sunken King sends players on a quest to reclaim the Crown that King Vendrick once owned. With entirely new areas to explore within the Dark Souls II universe, players will find pyramids, underground caverns, and unknown foes. It is said that the Ancient Crown is buried deep below the surface, but surely it cannot sit unguarded?"
