Want DLC for Dark Souls II? How about three different packs? Namco Bandai has today announced plans for a DLC trilogy, bringing us new screens and a trailer that shows off new enemies, bosses and locations, all of which want to kill you in horrible ways. 

Dark Souls II Review: Even Better Than The First

These three DLC chapters will be known collectively as The Lost Crowns Trilogy, and will be available for all platorms that the game is available- Xbox 360, PS3, and PC via Steam. Who needs next-gen?

The first chapter will hit in July and be called 'Crown of the Sunken King'. It will send players on a journey to recaim the crowns that Drangleic's King Vendrick once owned, and that will be yours to wear once you do. "Crown of the Sunken King features an entirely different world within the Dark Souls II universe, where stepped pyramids span a vast underground cavern. It is said that one of the ancient crowns lay buried deep within these dark caverns; but surely such a valued item cannot sit unguarded. Players that seek adversity and glory will be rewarded with a crown that holds the strength of lords from times long past."

"To say we are excited to unleash these three new chapters to Dark Souls II fans is an understatement." said Chris Gilbert, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. "BANDAI NAMCO Games is very proud of the universal praise and enjoyment fans have both given and received from Dark Souls II. The Lost Crowns trilogy and more specifically the Crown of the Sunken King will kick-off what will surely be an exciting summer of speculation and anticipation of the new battles, challenges, and triumphs to come amongst our most ardent fans."

Crown of the Sunken King will be available in the Americas on July, 22, 2014 followed by the DLC launches of Crown of the Old Iron King on August 26, 2014 and Crown of the Ivory King on September 24, 2014. A Season Pass will be offered for the entire trilogy but only through Steam, sadly.
