If you've got a current-gen console and dying repeatedly is the way you like to experience your video games, then rejoice as Dark Souls II is heading to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 3, 2015.

The base game has been repackaged as Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, and it comes with the original title, plus the three-chapter DLC expansion (Crown Of The Sunken King, Crown Of The Old Iron King, and Crown Of The Ivory King) and "an array" of new story-expanding content (featuring new in-game events and NPC characters, plus deadlier enemies and some gameplay tweaks).

Scholar of the First Sin is heading to old-gen consoles and PC as well (and will feature a large-scale update - that will also be made available to those with the original at the time of launch), and while we can expect some tweaks in the old-gen version, it's the current-gen take that'll yield the biggest visual improvement, as you can see from the screens and trailer below.

REVIEW. Written by Philip Lauritz Poulsen

"The game has lost none of its relentless difficulty, and the many improvements make it a great experience for veterans and newcomers. But it may not be for everybody."
