Immortalise your commitment to Dark Souls by designing a shield that will be offered as post-launch downloadable content.

Publisher Namco Bandai is running a community competition now on Facebook to find the best shield designs.

Become a fan of Dark Souls on Facebook, download the three blank shield templates, draw a willy on them and submit the design via Facebook to take part.

Entries close 13th July.

Members of the community vote on their favourite motifs until 20th July.

The top ten designs for each of the three templates go to Dark Souls developer FromSoftware for final judging.

The winners will be announced on 28th July.

Namco Bandai will give you a free Dark Souls game if your shield gets short-listed for FromSoftware.

If your shield design wins, you'll bag a signed Limited Edition of Dark Souls plus see your work immortalised in the game. You'll be mentioned in the game's credits, too.

The competition has begun.

Dark Souls.
