Dark Souls: Remastered On PS4 Pro Will Not Feature HDR Lighting
Jan 13 2018
Developer Bandai Namco has released a trailer announcing the upcoming release of FromSoftware's infamous Dark Souls Remastered for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch, on May 25th 2018.
The collection will include all three games, and launch on May 24, according to Japan's Dark Souls site. Although it is not a new entry into the series, the remaster will bring a lot of updates and quality of life changes for the current generation of consoles.
Dark Souls:Remastered will feature what publisher Bandai Namco is calling a "Dynamic 4K resolution" and an increase in the number of players able to participate in an online session. Up to six players can join together online to help, or hurt, each other throughout their quest. And what about you, on which platform do you plan to play Dark Souls Remastered?
Though it's unclear just how Dark Souls: Remastered will perform undocked, my bet is that the Switch will run it at a standard 720p 30 fps (which isn't bad). In addition to that, the game now has dedicated server, instead of P2P connection.
All of the game's contents, including DLC, should come with the remastered edition.
Nintendo only facilitated the reveal though, as the remaster will also be coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
From Software is the name behind the Dark Souls Remastered which means that the game is at good hands since From Software is the studio behind the trilogy. The PC version will run at a native 4K resolution, with all textures at 2K unconverted, and will run at 60 fps as well.
