Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin Online Features Return

There’s finally an update on Twitter regarding the Dark Souls PC server situation, following Bandai Namco and FromSoftware taking them offline to work on fixing a security update. However, not every version of every game will be returning. The company announced that people can now play Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin online on PCs again as of October 25, 2022. However, Dark Souls II’s DX9 base version and Dark Souls Remastered servers aren’t available live yet, and Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition will not be returning.

As a reminder, this all started back on January 23, 2022. Bandai Namco and FromSoftware announced a security exploit forced them to take all PVP servers offline. At the time, it referred to it as “temporarily” taking action. However ahead of the Elden Ring launch, the companies noted repairs weren’t ready and wouldn’t show up until after that game’s debut.

The official announcement didn’t note any expected release window for the base version of Dark Souls II servers, but it did clarify what is keeping Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition online elements from returning. The announcement cited the game’s age as a factor, noting repairs were unable as a result.

Here’s the official explanation:

As a reminder, Dark Souls III servers are already back online. Bandai Namco and FromSoftware announced restored service for it back in August 2022.

Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition is available on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Dark Souls II can be found on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is out on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
