According to this overall mediocre announcement trailer, there is roughly three episodes of more Dark Souls 2 for you to die in. What’s the deal with this arbitrary episodic format you ask? Exactly how long is an “episode” of content in regards to Dark Souls 2? They’re certainly making it seem like it is broken up by locale, but most locations in Dark Souls 2 usually only take maybe an hour each to get through, so perhaps these are straight up massive environments. I don’t know, man. Sometimes I don’t have all the answers.
Dubbed The Lost Crowns, the DLC has you traveling to distant foreign lands to recover three crowns that King Vendrick once owned. That’s all we know right now. I want more Dark Souls 2 so I’m relatively excited, but I can’t help but be bummed at how cheap and uncool this announcement trailer is.
It looks like you can expect to be playing Episode 1 of The Lost Crowns on July 22nd.
