    Same.

    I wonder if they've patched the BSS drops.

    @robc84 I thought they said it was working as intended, BSS for everyone but Quaddy.

    I didn't say it was a problem, but I now fully understand why you don't think people will manage the 10 games in 12 months challenge :)

    I mean, technically, that's just one game. Just because you're buying copies of it on other platforms shouldn't count... right?

    Maybe you forgot to update PSN v3.

    Remaster should send this thread to 60k in about 6months

    @Rivuzu as a matter of fact, he probably has multiple copies of Dark Souls already. I say it shouldn't count at all.

    Definitely buying my 4th and 5th copies of this on PS4 and Switch. This release is making my year.

    Wait. Wtf. Apparently it is using no new assets? So does that mean it will pretty much look like dark souls originally did with some slightly better resolutions and fps?

    @Bichii There's a shitload of speculation on this. Bandai Namco appear to be blanket denying almost everything, including whether or not there are new assets and a discount for existing PC owners, with "we've not commented on this yet".

    All that seems to be confirmed so far are the resolutions/framerates.

    PS4/XB1: 1080p/60fps
    PS4 Pro/XB1X: 4k/60fps
    PC: Up to 4k/60fps
    Switch docked: 1080p/30fps
    Switch undocked: 720p/30fps

    No HDR support on any platform.

    None of which is in any way surprising (save perhaps the HDR bit). There are some reports that the PC version uses higher resolution assets than the PS4 Pro/XB1X, but that is still in the unconfirmed bucket.

    Plus it's not actually From Software doing the remaster. Don't expect new or changed content. Just some technical polish.

    Edit: Actually, so far as I can see, the text below is Bamco's official statement on the matter:

    The game will run at an upscaled 4K resolution and 60fps on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. The PS4 and Xbox will run it at 1080p and 60fps. PC will have native 4K with all textures 2K unconverted and 60fps. The Nintendo Switch version runs the game at 1080p and 30fps in TV mode and 720p and 30fps for Handheld Mode.

    @Rogueywon so considering BB and ds3 were 30fps on ps4 I guess ds remastered will look dog shite using ancient assets if it's running at 60.

    @Bichii If a game's running at 4k/60fps on PS4 Pro, it's probably safe to assume it isn't pushing any image quality frontiers.

    I'm not interested then. I was hoping ds1 but visuals of ds3.

    @Bichii Scholar of the First Sin was 1080p/60fps on PS4, wasn't it? That didn't look too bad.

    Let's wait and see how things pan out, rather than judging on early statements.

    I'll be happy just to have an unmodded 60fps version on PC, to be honest.

    I've only just read the article on the front page. Guess I'll be buying DS1 on PS4 now, can't wait to see how it turns out. The DS2 remaster on PS4 was fantastic so I don't doubt this will be any different.

    I've not played any Soulsbourne games for a while but have been playing with the idea of either a new Bloodborne build (arcane is probably the only build I've not tried) or another DS3 playthrough.

    I'll be getting this on Switch anyway, and I might be wrong in any case, but doesn't the original DS have a few weird bugs to do with jumping and durability and stuff at 60fps because the engine wasn't really designed for it? Presumably they'll fix that stuff at least for the remaster, even if they don't upgrade much else.

    @atothewest That was Dark Souls 2. The original PS3 and 360 versions were capped at 30fps. The PC version was capped at 60fps. This did indeed create a couple of oddities on the PC version, with weapon durability decreasing at twice the rate, because weapons passed through twice as many "taking durability damage" frames. They never fixed this on the original release.

    When they released Scholar of the First Sin on PS4, XB1 and PC, all of those platforms were 60fps. At release, the durability bug hit all three platforms, but in this case, they patched it after a fortnight or so.

    Dark Souls 1 was only ever designed to run at 30fps on any platform. The PC version could be increased to 60fps using third party mods, but this caused some really freaky shit to happen.

    But for a Soulslike, 60fps is always going to be preferable to 30fps. They're highly sensitive games when it comes to reaction time. 30fps may be playable, but it's not like a turn based JRPG where framerate makes little difference.

    It's so heartbreaking to see the Dark Souls thread reduced to resolution and framerate discussions. :(

    It looks pretty bad when it came out. If it looks like shit I'll play BB and 3 some more.

    DS1 was never about the graphics/resolution. The art style is what makes the game, the way you uncover the lore and the gameplay. I'm this respect, DS1 has never been bettered.
