PC gamers have already gotten a taste of the Artorias of the Abyss DLC back in August with the PC release of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die, but PlayStation3 and Xbox 360 owners will get their share of masochism tomorrow when the downloadable content finally arrives on consoles. Set in a time long ago, at the height of the kingdom of Oolacile’s power, players will venture back and witness the spread of the abyss. Among the new bosses you’ll encounter, perhaps none are more noteworthy than the titular character himself, the famed Knight Artorias. A hero of legendary status, you will uncover the truth about why Artorias ventured into the Abyss and unravel the mysteries that surround the forgotten lands of Oolacile.
In addition to new bosses, you’ll adventure across several new areas set in the ravaged land, discover dozens of new weapons and armor, and if you’re clever enough, you may even find a couple of old friends. The DLC launches tomorrow, October 23, in North America, and on the 24th in Europe and Australia. It will be available for $15 or 1200 Microsoft points.
