The Dark Souls 2 DLC is just hours away, as the deadline is now up with the content due to arrive on Tuesday July 22. As gamers patiently wait for the Darks Souls 2 DLC download though, we can see that the developers have prepared a new update for everyone to download before the update goes live.
We told you last week about the imminent release of the Dark Souls 2 Crown of the Sunken King DLC. It could go live at any moment but for now you should see a prompt to install the new Dark Souls 2 1.08 on PS3, Xbox 360 or PC the next time you boot up the game.
You’ll be pleased to see that developers From Software have issued a massive bug list patch, although there is one or two major changes to gameplay as well. From now on, you’ll have to play the game with a new change that eliminates health recovery items from being used in PVP.
There are plenty of other changes to read through as we wait for the DLC to arrive so we suggest you take a few minutes to read through the full Dark Souls 2 1.08 patch notes here on Steam.
What is your reaction to the changes – is anyone downloading the new DLC right now or are you still constantly refreshing the store?
