Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is a package with Dark Souls II, the three downloadable Lost Crown chapters, and some brand new content. FromSoftware expanded on the story, added a NPC, improved the gameplay, and made new event scenes.
If you have Dark Souls II for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 or PC the extra content (but not the DLC episodes) will be added to the game for free through a major update. FromSoftware will release the 1.10 update on February 5, 2015 in Japan. That’s the same day the PS3, Xbox 360, and DirectX 9 versions go on sale. Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and DirectX 11 on April 9, 2015 in Japan.
