I reversed my opinion of Dark Souls 2 when I entered New Game+, and discovered just how much game they packed into the (blood) sausage casing. I've now finished the game three times and am only four trophies away from earning a platinum, my first ever. So, I'm still very busy with the game that came in the box but From Software went ahead and announced DLC anyway:
I still think it's the third best 'Souls' game, but wow, there is a ton of game there. I will write up my full thoughts later.
The first DLC - Crown of the Sunken King - will be out July 22.
