Dark Souls III will appear in North and South America and Europe a little less than a month after its March 24 debut in Japan. Bandai Namco and FromSoftware have confirmed a April 12 western release date for the game. To help people prepare, the three versions of the game that will be available at launch have been unveiled.
The basic version of Dark Souls III is $59.99 and includes the game. This is the only version that will be available for Windows PCs.
A Dark Souls III Day One release will be available to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners who pre-order in North America. It will also cost $59.99, but will include the game, its soundtrack, a Prima Starter Guide, and an exclusive O-Sleeve package.
The biggest North American release is the Dark Souls III Collector’s Edition. It includes the game and Day One soundtrack and Prima Starter Guide bonuses. It also provides people a 10” tall Red Knight statue, an art book, a cloth map showing all locations in Dark Souls III, and a collector’s box to hold everything. It will be $129.99 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Europe’s versions of Dark Souls III are a bit different. Its pre-order version is the Apocalypse Edition and includes the game, its soundtrack, and a metal case. It’s collector’s edition is largely the same, though it doesn’t include the starter guide, appears to have a different art book, and includes a metal case and three iron-on patches.
Europe will also receive a Dark Souls III Prestige Edition. It will include everything from the European collector’s edition, as well as a 40cm tall Lord of Cinder, hand-painted, resin statue.
Dark Souls III was announced at E3 2015.
