Dark Souls: Remastered up for preorder on Xbox One [updated]

A few weeks ago, we reported that Dark Souls: Remastered was available for preorder on Amazon, but curiously a physical Xbox One version was unavailable. Luckily, that doesn't matter anymore because it went up on the Microsoft Store.

Updated March 24, 2018: Dark Soul: Remastered costs $39.99 on Xbox One.

Dark Souls: Remastered is now available for digital preorder and comes with some new information. Dark Souls: Remastered is enhanced for Xbox One X and supposedly runs at 4K 60 FPS. However, it's unclear if this is an upscaled solution on Xbox One X or a native presentation.

Dark Souls originally launched in 2011 and became somewhat of a sensation upon release. Not only did it garner critical acclaim, but its gameplay focused on upgrading and skillful combat attracted a significant following. The franchise kept on growing from there and sold more and more with subsequent entries.

Dark Souls: Remastered is a third-person role-playing game which takes place in an open world connected by a central area known as the Firelink Shire. As much as is about skillful combat, there's a lot of exploration involved. The aim is to learn from your mistakes as you memorize each area and make you way to various boss encounters. Collecting souls and increasing your health, stamina or other attributes is key to success as you get ready for the final fight.

Dark Souls: Remastered will be available May 25, 2018 for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. The Nintendo Switch version will be available later this summer.
