Dark Souls 2 is finally getting the major remaster that it deserves

Depending on who you might ask, each fan will likely give you a different answer to which title by FromSoftware is the best. However, there’s a good chance that many will mention the Dark Souls series.

Regardless of which Dark Souls title you might choose, each will bring an enticing yet unnerving gothic world, interesting NPCs, epic boss fights and challenging gameplay that will push you to the limits. Outside of the Dark Souls series, the likes of Armored Core IV: Fires of Rubicon or Elden Ring are also no exception and few better feelings in gaming compare to when you finally defeat a FromSoftware boss.

That all being said, the topic of today’s discussion is Dark Souls II which was released in 2014 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. More specifically, 10 years after its release, Dark Souls II is finally getting the long-awaited remaster that it deserves.

“Developed by FromSoftware, Dark Souls II is the highly anticipated sequel to the gruelling 2011 breakout hit Dark Souls. The unique old-school action RPG experience captivated the imaginations of gamers worldwide with incredible challenge and intense emotional reward,” reads the synopsis of the critically acclaimed title.

In 2015, Dark Souls II received a remaster for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with Scholar of the First Sins. However, it’s probably safe to say that at least visually, this remaster was not a massive upgrade over the original. Thankfully, as reported by PCGamesN, a modder by the name of ‘fromsoftserve’ is on the case.

If you’re familiar with the fromsoftserve’s ‘Re-Remastered’ mod for the original Dark Souls, then you will know that we’re in for a treat with the Dark Souls II version. The remaster promises upscaled textures, dynamic shadows, and a resolution boost and the skybox is also being upscaled, and much more. The mod in question isn't available yet and there’s no release date announced. Yet, you can follow fromsoftserve on Twitter to keep updated on the progress of the Dark Souls II mod as well as the dedicated Nexusmods page.

Dark Souls II is out now on PC, PlayStation and Xbox.
