Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin edition is due to launch on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year with all of the DLC included, a few gameplay tweaks and a nice graphical upgrade, bumping things up to 1080p and 60 frames per second on both consoles.
Publisher Bandai Namco confirmed that the PlayStation 4 version would run at 1080p 60 frames per second on the PlayStation blog, IGN later reported that the Xbox One version would also be getting the same treatment. The new version of the game will also include new lighting effects and cinematic filters.
From Software also wanted to shake things up a bit so players couldn’t beat the game over from memory. As a result, item locations and enemy locations have changed around, meaning that many will have to learn the game over again. Some weapons have also been re-balanced.
Scholar of the First Sin will launch on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC on the 7th of April with all three additional DLC packs included.
