Dark Souls 3: The Convergence is an original expansion you can play free

This is incredible

What if Dark Souls 3 was even harder than it already is? That's a question I'm sure you've probably asked yourself if you enjoy indulging in the occasional bit of masochism.

For me personally, Dark Souls 3 is already plenty hard. I still have nightmares about the Abyss Watchers, and have no idea how speedrunners do it.

Anyway, if you do happen to be one of those people that wishes they could get a new, even harder Dark Souls game, I have just the thing for you. It's called The Convergence, and it's basically an whole expansion made by fans that you can download and play for free. Perfect for anyone looking for their next Souls fix while they wait for the Elden Ring expansion to drop.

There's a very good chance you've already heard of The Convergence, of course. It's one of the more popular mods for Dark Souls 3 and even got its own Elden Ring spinoff not too long ago. But if this is all completely new to you, you're sleeping one of the best unofficial expansions ever made.

When I say this mod is massive, I'm not screwing around. The Convergence completely overhauls Dark Souls 3 with dozens of new weapons, hundreds of new spells, completely reworked areas, enhanced visuals, new enemies, new bosses, and so much more. It is very much the Real Deal.

"Every map has been extensively overhauled with new enemy and item placements, improved lighting, decorations and aesthetics," the mod's creator TigerG1992 explains. "The goal of the map reworks is to change the feel of the areas, as well as adding new surprises and challenges, in hopes of reigniting the excitement of a first playthrough."

If you're thinking about a new Dark Souls adventure but don't want to retread old ground, The Convergence is absolutely the right call for you. You can download it via NexusMods right now.
