A “Dark Souls Trilogy” is coming to PS4 and Xbox One this fall and fans won’t even have to wait that long to grab it. Bandai Namco officially announced the new Dark Souls Trilogy this week, the game is set to release on PS4 and Xbox One on October 19, 2018 for $79. The three-game compilation includes “Dark Souls: Remastered,” “Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin,” and “Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades Edition” packaged in an exclusive Steelbook case. You can spend a boring Wednesday Halloween tucked into the lore of all things Dark Souls this year.

You can already pre-order the trilogy, you can find it on PS4 and Xbox One here on Amazon.

The Dark Souls series has been going strong since it first released back in 2011. The franchise has added gameplay elements like asynchronous multiplayer, and an extremely challenging difficulty since it first debuted, growing an extensive fan base. Now players can own the entire series along with all associated DLC in one ultimate package.

“The DARK SOULS Trilogy gives those who haven’t played the DARK SOULS series a great opportunity to jump in and experience what has become one of the most influential video game series of the past decade,” said Jenn Tsang, Marketing Brand Manager for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “The magic of DARK SOULS lies within its ability to challenge players with highly rewarding gameplay and deliver a euphoric sense of accomplishment after beating a particularly tough boss, or area in the game. We hope to share that feeling with new players through DARK SOULS Trilogy.”

We should point out that the physical edition of Dark Souls Trilogy will be available in limited numbers across the Americas, so if you want to own one yourself, we suggest pre-ordering them and not waiting until the actual release day. You don’t want to be at the mercy of the eBay sellers out there once it’s sold out, or maybe you want to be the one with all the copies.
