In addition to releasing a new Dark Souls Remastered trailer today, Bandai Namco also let loose some very intriguing information regarding the new, better-looking (and better playing) Dark Souls coming down the pipeline. Unfortunately, it isn't a new Nintendo Switch release date, which would be great news since it was the only platform to get a delay. Instead, it's an offer that you might be eligible for if you already own Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition on PC. If you do, you could snag Dark Souls Remastered for half-off its asking price.
The game will be releasing May 25 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, but you'll get a discount on PC only via Steam if you already own the Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition. The loyalty discount will be added when you check out if you have the game in your inventory, which means you'll already be getting beaucoup savings on a brand new game just for buying the game in the past.
If you do have Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition in your Steam library already, you'll be kissing it goodbye in preparation for Dark Souls Remastered to take its place. On May 8 at 4 PM PT, the Steam version of the Prepare to Die Edition will be delisted and replaced with Dark Souls Remastered once it's out on May 25. You'll still be able to redownload it and access it via your library, but it won't be available any longer.
Now all that's left is the waiting. That's the hardest part, I imagine.
