Clearly not wanting to be left out in the shade by the ridiculous number of remasters and definitive editions hitting the current-gen consoles, Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin will be hitting PC next week. Essentially a game of the year edition bundling together Dark Souls II with its season pass content, the headline feature for returning players is the engine upgrade from DirectX 9 to DirectX 11.
All sorts of flashy new features, graphics, sound and performance upgrades are yours if you splash out for it on PC. By now we're used to upgrades like this coming courtesy of a free patch, but current Dark Souls 2 owners do at least get 20 bucks knocked off the asking price if they double dip. Before you get busy playing the definitive version of Dark Souls 2, looking the best it has ever looked, you'd best check out the official Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin system requirements.
