Dark Souls has officially been confirmed to release in North America on October 4, and Europe October 7, for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Dark Souls is the spiritual successor to 2009’s critically acclaimed PS3 exclusive Demon’s Souls, which some people still consider to be one of the hardest and most frustrating games EVER.
The Dark Souls Collector’s Edition can be pre-ordered for $59.99, the same price as the standard edition while supplies last, and will include a limited edition art book containing premium illustrations of characters and environments from the game, a mini-strategy guidebook, behind-the-scenes videos from the development studio detailing various stages of game concept, design and building, and the game’s soundtrack for digital download. All of this will come packaged with the standard edition game in a custom-designed metal case.
Dark Souls will be available throughout North America on October 4 and Europe on October 7, 2011
