Online servers return for Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin


Dark Souls 2 invasion battle

FromSoftware has finally reactivated online features for Dark Souls 2 on PC, but its not all good news.

Servers were shut down across all Dark Souls games on PC back in January due to a security issue. Dark Souls 3 servers were back in August, then offline, then back online again last month.

Now Dark Souls 2 is back, at least for the Scholar of the First Sin release that featured enhanced graphics and DLC.

The base Dark Souls 2 game will have online features reactivated “at a later date”, according to a tweet from the official Dark Souls account. “Our thanks for your continued patience and support,” it said.

Online features for the PC version of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin (DX11) have been reactivated.

Dark Souls 1 fans may be disappointed, though, as all versions of the game remain offline on PC.

That will be permanent for the PC version of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition, as “due to an ageing system” online services will no longer be supported.

However, FromSoftware is still working on reactivating online features for Dark Souls Remastered – “we will inform you when they return,” it said.

Work on the restoration of online services for the PC version of Dark Souls Remastered is still underway, and we will inform you when they return.

Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated.
