There won’t be any discount for Dark Souls Remastered PC, despite Bandai Namco’s store page indicating otherwise [UPDATE]

Dark Souls Remastered’s reveal is by far the worst we’ve seen in recent history and that’s because Bandai Namco is constantly changing crucial details about it. One of them was HDR for PS4. Initially, the publisher claimed that Sony’s console would support it but now there is no mention of such a thing. Naturally, this doesn’t really matter for us PC gamers, however, the next change that the publisher has done affects all previous owners of Dark Souls PC.

As we’ve reported earlier today, Bandai Namco’s official store page suggested that there would be a 50% discount to all PC owners of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition. This information was coming directly from Bandai Namco’s official store. However, Bandai Namco is now claiming that there won’t be any discount for the PC version.

As both PCGamer and JeuxVideo reported, there won’t be any discount for Dark Souls Remastered PC. As such, Dark Souls Remastered will be priced at $39.99 on all platforms. Furthermore, Bandai Namco has removed the little “50% discount” asterisk from its store page.

From what we know so far, Dark Souls Remastered will feature 2K unconverted textures on the PC, native support for 4K and 60fps, will support up to six online players, and will come with all the DLCs that were released for the original game.

UPDATE:

Bandai Namco’s new community manager had this to say:

“Hi guys, Izmar here, new community manager for Bandai Namco EU. Nice to meet you all! I just wanted to step in very quickly and say that right now, we haven’t officially announced anything about the subject of a discount. I’m not sure who PCGamer’s source is, but it seems like they could be someone who isn’t in the loop about what’s going on”
