FromSoftware has finally managed to get Dark Souls 3 back online, seven months after PC PvP servers had to be shut down.
Back in January, PC servers for all Dark Souls games were shuttered due to security issues - and remained down for months. In July, at the 183 day mark, there were signs that Dark Souls 3 could be back online soon - but still no fix.
Now, at well over 200 days, the PC servers for Dark Souls 3 are now live again. Rejoice!
Today's announcement was made on the official Dark Souls Twitter account, alongside a messsage stating that FromSoftware was "working to restore these features for all other [Dark Souls] titles".

We are working to restore these features for all other #DarkSouls titles and will inform you when they are back in service.
Thank you once more for your patience and support. pic.twitter.com/XHiCZDEANC
Dark Souls 1 and 2 are still offline play only, though FromSoftware will notify fans when those are also back online.
