A report said on Monday that the popular game Dark Souls Remastered would not include any assets. The news comes after a popular member of the Souls community hinted of such possibility.
Dark Souls remastered won’t be looking for assets
VaatiVidya claimed that Dark Souls Remastered version would feature concepts from Dark Souls 3. This means that players of the popular game would be seeing familiar elements from the game in the new version.
The Soul fan, however, tweeted belatedly the game’s remastered version won’t be featuring any assets from the Dark Souls 3. The Dark Souls Remastered version will not feature an HDR lighting, especially for the PlayStation 4 Pro console version.
“So to correct a few things that I posted about yesterday – “Dark Souls Remastered will not include new assets based on the Dark Souls 3 engine or any combat differences.
There is no HDR lighting for the PS4 Pro version,” VaatiVidya tweeted.
Meanwhile, a separate statement issued by game developer Bandai Namco seems to confirm the information about the game’s apparent lack of HDR lighting and the information that it is expected to run at 60 fps.
“Whether you’re a die-hard fan of the Dark Souls series, or someone looking to take their first plunge into the series, you can experience an epic, dark fantasy universe stricken by the Curse in stunning, high-definition detail running at 60 FPS. Explore and build your character to create a unique gameplay experience with a wide variety of weapons, armor, and magic,” Bandai Namco wrote.
Obviously, the game’s apparent lack of HDR disappointed many of its avid gamers. This would also mean that the remastered of the game will be a unique version for fans.
Also, PlayStation said it would the game features multiplayer support which is expanded to include up to six people. The Dark Souls Remastered version would have a summoning feature, among others.
Dark Souls Remastered is slated for launch on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on May 25.
