Dark Souls 3 DLC Releasing Early On Steam Following Xbox One Error

by Mike Guarino


Dark Souls 3’s first DLC called Ashes of Ariandel was set to launch tomorrow across all set platforms, but due to an error the DLC actually popped up for download briefly on Xbox One last week. Bandai Namco fixed the error pretty quickly, but it looks like they have changed up the release plans as a result.

They made the announcement of the change to GameSpot, saying the following:

“Due to a logistical error, the Dark Souls III Ashes of Ariandel DLC was made available for download for a short period of time for Xbox One players. We have since corrected this scheduling error and the Dark Souls III Ashes of Ariandel DLC will now be available on October 24, 2016 at 3 PM PDT for Steam players and October 24, 2016 at 9 PM PDT for console players.”

It’s not a huge switch up, but Dark Souls players definitely won’t be complaining. The DLC will be the first of two for the game, and features a new snow-themed area that includes PvP. You can learn more about it by clicking right here.

Dark Souls 3: Ashes of Ariandel will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The second of the two DLC won’t be launching until 2017.
