Bandai Namco has revealed the first details and screenshots from the current-gen version of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin. For starters, Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin will contain the original game and the three DLC of The Lost Crowns: Crown of the Sunken King, Crown of the Old Iron King and Crown of the Ivory King.
Here are the key features of the current-gen DX11 version of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin:
– New graphic improvements with higher resolutions (1080p for consoles/ 3840*2160 for PC) and improved framerate (up to 60 fps).
– New enemy placements and brand new AI reactions
– Battle online with up to of 6 players.
Below you can find the first screenshots from this new version. As you can see, they don’t look as sexy as you’d expect from such a remaster. Not only that, but the amazing lighting system – that was advertised prior to the release of the old-gen version of Dark Souls II – is absent, something that will definitely puzzle a lot of gamers.
Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin releases on April 2nd.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
