Dark Souls is the famously easy and brightly-coloured walking simulator beloved of casual gamers, and scorned by the hardcore. If you’ve long desired to frolic in its pastel fields but been unwilling to scrape together the requisite pennies, the good news is that, if you live in the EU (including UK), you can currently grab a Steam code for it for free. I know it says ‘Prepare To Die’ in the subtitle, but that’s just a typo – it’s actually ‘Prepare To Dye’, in reference to its acclaimed dressmaking minigame.
The offer comes via Future’s annual awards ceremony (and, more recently, also a digital storefront) the Golden Joysticks, who are giving away free Dark Souls: Prepare To Die edition codes to anyone who plops their email address and SteamID into this here form. The bad news is that you might have to wait up to seven days to get your code; my hasn’t come through yet so I can’t 100% guarantee that the process works. It’s not related to RPS in any way, so don’t blame me if it doesn’t: this is purely a heads-up.
Again, only open to UK and EU folk, and the offer expires on March 31st – but is also subject to remaining stock, whatever that word actually means in reference to automatically-generated strings of characters.
As far as I understand, this is being done to promote the aforementioned Joysticks store, at which a sale is currently running.
Anyway: give it a go, good luck and let us know below if your code arrives in a timely fashion.
