Final week we reported on the marginally uncommon scenario that’s developed with the Dark Souls games on PC. Basically, the video games have been offline since January, when a serious exploit was made public, and this was swiftly adopted by the discharge of developer FromSoft’s Elden Ring—by any metric, the largest title of the 12 months to date.
Whereas it is comprehensible that the developer’s consideration has been elsewhere, this now signifies that the Souls video games, the most effective and most influential collection of the final decade, have not been working correctly on PC for about 4 months. In the middle of writing the above article PCG contacted writer Bandai Namco a number of occasions, and did not get a response.
The priority about when and certainly if the servers have been ever coming again has been rising. Now, somebody at Bandai Namco assist has delivered the message Souls followers wish to hear. Redditor Relevant_Heart_1751 contacted the writer to ask once they’d have the ability to play their video games once more, and obtained the next response:
“I am getting again to you with regard to your inquiry if the Darkish Souls servers for the PC shall be again on-line.
“I am glad to verify that the builders are actively engaged on resolving the problem in query and re-launching the Darkish Souls servers for PC as quickly as attainable. For the second, we wouldn’t have an estimate of when that is anticipated to occur.”
Effectively that wasn’t so laborious, was it. It nonetheless stays mystifying why the developer and writer have been so quiet about this subject, which has been dragging on for method too lengthy. Elden Ring’s success makes it comprehensible that FromSoft’s preliminary precedence was to assist that extremely popular, very new title because it greeted hundreds of thousands of gamers. However the video games that made Elden Ring attainable deserve somewhat higher than being left on the step and ignored.
