A new game patch is being released on Friday afternoon that adds the capability for a frame rate increase on the PS4 Pro.

There are lots of additional updates, too. Click here to check out the full details.

Went to have a go on this last night only to be faced with a 7GB update download! How on earth can an update need to be that big? Presumably this is associated with the new DLC, but seeing as I'm unlikely to buy that any time soon why does my update need to be so bloomin' massive!?

When was the last time you played it? One of the previous updates had a ton of balance changes and stuff. The newest update for me is 3GB.

I got the DLC but cant access it yet. I have one character in NG+ so i fired it up and ploughed through the Ariandel area to get to the DLC. Took most of the evening but i finally unlocked the Sister Friede boss fight so ill have to try and finish that tonight before starting on the ringed city. Even tho the DLC reviewed well reactions seem mixed over on gaf so im a bit apprehensive, especially doing it in NG+

That's what I'll have to do. Use my NG+ character and risk getting stuck at DLC or roll a new character and start all over again which i cba with.

I knew I shouldn't have hit NG+ lol - I haven't played it properly since either :x

I did the Dark Souls DLC for the first time in NG+ along with the extra bosses (Vendrick, Ancient Dragon and Darklurker) in Dark Souls 2 on NG+. I don't know how hard this game gets as I've only played it through once but the others weren't that bad since although the enemies were stronger so were you and you already knew where the enemies were, had better equipment etc.

I dunno if it just feels extra tough because its NG+, or if it is actually just a load of bullshit. I'm thinking of just going back to my NG character and ploughing through the game to see if its any more enjoyable in NG than NG+

first boss is an absolute shocker so I wouldn't even bother trying that one on NG+. Multiple stage boss fight that starts with two enemies, then one with what might be the most HP of any boss in the game.

Yeah strawberry float this. Apparently they nerfed the Angels but the only acceptable nerf if removing the strawberry floaters altogether. Its just totally at odds with how a souls game should be played, slow, methodical, creeping through new areas with your shield up, these banana splits just constantly spamming lazors at you ruins it. And apparently the rest of the areas have similar enemies that just spam arrows at you. strawberry float this is dreadful. Just tried it again and gave up after a few minutes, cant believe how bad this is. Not sure if I'm just burned out on DS3 or this really is awful but I have no desire to keep playing and ive not even made it to the first boss

You can permanently kill the angels by killing their host things that are those enemies that have burst out the back of the hollows with the stones on their backs.

In the second area there's a giant that summons ghost archers who pelt you with arrows but they're pretty easy to avoid for the most part. There's another one later on and that's the bit I'm up to.

The first DLC was definitely much better and more traditional Dark Soul. This one just sort of feels like sprints through gauntlets of enemies so far.

Completed this tonight. Definitely gets a lot better after the second area and the next three bosses (one is optional) are really good. You can be summoned to fight as the second last boss like the Old Monk in Demon's Souls which is cool but it's almost always pointless because you're always against three or four other players. Quite a few nice new bits of armour and weapons by the end of it including the GIANT DOOR SHIELD a.k.a my new favourite invasion troll.



A lot of nice lore stuff as well.
