Even with no major changes, I’m still eager to get a definitive version of Dark Souls. While it was fine enough on consoles for the time, that lack of a consistent framerate really hurt. Even the current PC port isn’t the best, so to finally be able to see this game in its intended glory is all I really need.
🙁 a few links I was sourcing had bad info
[Update: Bandai Namco’s marketing team has made a post over on Sony’s blog that confirms a few details about the upcoming remaster. For starters, HDR is definitely not going to be a part of this, though 4K is in. The multiplayer component will also use dedicated servers and allow for up to six people to participate at once.
After the surprise announcement of Dark Souls Remastered from Nintendo’s mini-direct yesterday, a lot of speculation started about what this new version of From Software’s masterpiece would entail. Dark Souls theorist VaatiVidya had claimed that this new port would be using engine assets from Dark Souls 3 and would contain HDR lighting and some PS4 Pro enhancements.
So to correct a few things that I posted about yesterday – “Dark Souls Remastered will not include new assets based on the Dark Souls 3 engine or any combat differences.
There is no HDR lighting for the PS4 Pro version”
