Prepare to delve back into Lordran. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 5 Reasons to Play the Dark Souls Remaster.
For this list, we’ll be counting down the top reasons to head back into the land of lords. Whether you’re a returning fan or a new-comer looking to experience a lot of death, this remaster is definitely worth your time.
#5: Updated Look
Let’s get the obvious one out of the way first. The remaster will feature a fresh coat of paint. The higher-resolution and framerate look stunning from early gameplay videos and trailers, so that's a good start. And If you’ve got a 4k system, it's going to look even more incredible. We all want to traverse Blighttown again, but this time at a constant 60 frames per second. And we can't wait to find the best spots with a picturesque view so we can praise the sun in glorious HD.
#4: It’s on Switch
Switch is dominating at the moment. With huge games like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Super Mario Odyssey already out, it’s a good time to get the console, but now, there’s no excuse. Nintendo gamers finally have the chance to play Dark Souls, and if you’ve already played it, you can now try defeating Ornstein and Smough before your train arrives and you have to go to work or school. Actually, what are lunch breaks for, right?
#3: Expanded Multiplayer
This is a worthy reason to replay Dark Souls on its own. How many times have we organized an online session with our friends only to never see their summon sign appear? With dedicated servers, finding and connecting to other players is going to be a breeze, similar to how it is in the later Souls games. In addition, we’ll get a smoother experience, which means no more being back-stabbed from 10 feet away. Also, there can be up to six players in one session, making for some crazy battles.
#2: It Will Be a Better PC Port
When Dark Souls was first ported to the PC, gamers jumped on it with hopes that the port would iron out some of the game's more nuanced issues like the aforementioned Blighttown framerate. What PC gamers ended up with however is one of the worst console to PC ports ever made. It brought all the annoying elements of the console version and managed to add a slew of new ones that made the game almost unplayable. With the impending remaster, however, all the issues should hopefully be resolved, and 3rd party mods like DS Fix won't be a necessity this time around.
#1: It’s the Best Time to Play It
Maybe the game’s been on your to-play list, or its interested you in some way, but you never got around to playing it. Well, now’s the best time. With its technical and visual upgrade, as well its accessibility, you need to pick this game up. You can finally cross “playing one of the greatest games of all time” off your to-do list. Plus, you won’t be the only one playing, as there’ll be a lot of gamers, both new and old, online. This means you’ll never feel alone in your attempts to take down a boss!
