Dark Souls 2 Crown of the Old Iron King DLC Now Available

on August 26, 2014 10:53 AM

Prepare to die a couple hundred more times as the second piece of the Dark Souls 2 DLC, known as The Crown of the Old Iron King, is available today.

Developer From Software has released a few new details about the punishingly difficult additions that are designed to bring players to their knees. Those masochistic enough to take on this grueling adventure will find new enemies, deadly traps and challenging bosses to conquer in the journey to reclaim the crowns that Drangleic’s King Vendrick once owned. The Crown of the Old Iron King also boasts an entirely new environment where black mists, seething flames and all sorts of treacherous sorcery can be found around every corner.

You can purchase the new DLC for $9.99 individually or pay $24.99 for all three DLC add-ons, known collectively as The Lost Crowns, as a season pass for $24.99. The last part of the DLC trilogy, The Crown of the Ivory King, will be available later next month on September 24th.
