Warning: If you’re looking forward to playing the Artorias of the Abyss DLC for Dark Souls, you’ve got some work ahead of you. The DLC, which launched yesterday on PSN and XBL, only becomes available late in the game. To access it, you must meet all of the following conditions:
* Defeat Hydra at Darkroot Basin
* Defeat Crystal Golem at Darkroot Basin and save Dusk of Oolacile
* Defeat Crystal Golem at Duke’s Archive and get Broken Pendant
* Touch Black Fog at lake in Darkroot Basin where player defeat Hydra
Namco Bandai confirms that players won’t be able to access the DLC without checking off all four of these requirements. Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem, but since Dark Souls is one of the HARDEST GAMES IN THE WORLD, players should expect to be punished for their purchase. Artorias of the Abyss adds some maps and environments, plus new bosses, enemies and NPCs, multiplayer content and so on. It’s bundled with the digital version of the Prepare to Die edition.
