Console Dark Souls: Artorias of the Abyss DLC out on 24th October

Otherwise known as Bertie's birthday.

Is Dark Souls harder than Vinnie Jones?

The new and additional Dark Souls: Artorias of the Abyss content will be released on Xbox Live and PSN on 24th October, Namco Bananas has said.

That same DLC will be bundled with the Prepare to Die Edition of Dark Souls, which arrives two days later for PS3 and Xbox 360 on 26th October.

Artorias of the Abyss packs new bosses, maps, enemies, NPCs, weapons and armour. An online player versus player matchmaking system is thrown in n' all.

Our Rich Stanton was blown away by Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition on PC - where this new content debuted. "This is a game that delivers on the medium's true potential, a man-made world of near-endless depth and ingenuity that asks a lot of its players, but gives back so much more," he wrote, dribbling.

In other words, it's an action RPG you should play.
