Dark Souls II 'Crown of the Old Iron King' DLC

Dark Souls II downloadable content ‘Crown of the Old Iron King’ is available today in North America and Europe (tomorrow for PlayStation 3 in Europe).

The add-on, the second chapter in the game’s ‘The Lost Crowns’ downloadable content trilogy, takes players on a journey to reclaim the crowns that Drangleic’s King Vendrick once owned, to new environments where new enemies, traps, and bosses appear. It’s set in “an entirely different world” where a massive tower swamped by black mist is lurking with flames, smoke, and sorcery.
