FromSoftware has made the decision to temporarily shut down online services on the PC platform.
The release of Elden Ring is just around the corner and FromSoftware has made a tough decision to ensure that its arrival is not clouded by any kind of technical issue. After the company was told that, through the Dark Souls 3 PC security breach, attackers could invade user information at will, installing malicious software or messing with whatever they wanted, the company responsible of Bloodborne has played his cards in the matter and has announced that the servers of Dark Souls on PC will remain closed until the deployment of Elden Ring . That is, until at least February 25:
Until the end of the month without online?
“Bandai Namco and FromSoftware are aware of the technical difficulties players have experienced with Dark Souls on PC. Based on feedback, we have identified the cause of the incident and are working on fixing it. In addition, we have extended the investigation to Elden Ring for implement the necessary security measures for this title on all platforms. Due to the time required to set up the proper test environments, online services for Dark Souls for PC will not resume until after the release of Elden Ring.”
Thus, we will not be able to continue using the multiplayer proper of the Dark Souls series on the PC platform until the company’s new video game is available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC , and it will not be known. specifies exactly when. A logical decision considering that we are facing one of the most important releases of the year, and FromSoftware wants everything to go smoothly without any problem. If you plan to go for some tricky boss and need a cable in Dark Souls, arm yourself with patience or wait a few days.
