Prepare to die, frequently and violently, because Namco Bandai today announced that Dark Souls is now available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Developed by FromSoftware, the seamlessly intertwined world of Dark Souls is full of extreme battles, rewarding challenges, nuanced weaponry and magic, and the flexibility to customize each character to suit any desired play style. The innovative online component allows gamers to draw from the collective experience of the Dark Souls community as they either help or sabotage each other on the journey through the Northern Realms to save the land from darkness. With a massive, seamless open world design, Dark Souls encourages deep exploration and an adaptable gameplay experience.

“Gamers have been eagerly anticipating the release of Dark Souls since falling in love with the uniquely challenging gameplay first pioneered with the PlayStation 3 exclusive Demon’s Souls,” said Carlson Choi, vice president of Marketing, Namco Bandai Games America. “With Dark Souls available on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, more gamers than ever will get the chance to explore the massive, seamless open world of the Northern Realms as they save the land from darkness. I hope they’re prepared. To die.”
