Gawd bless the new generation of consoles and the revamped re-releases of recent games publishers are putting together to take advantage of them. This gives us the nice knock-on effect of our games getting better, prettier, and generally fancier. Dark Souls II is the latest getting the revamp-o-release treatment in Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, a bundle including the DLC.
More than that, it’ll also improve graphics, add new NPCs, improve matchmaking, boost performance, raise the playercount, and other fine things. Some of those features will come in a free update, but others I’m a little hazier on.
