And in case of PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, the game will be upscaled to 4K resolution and 60 FPS. There is no information as to whether there will be any content updates as there was with the Scholar of the First Sin remaster of Dark Souls 2.

"Dark Souls" was originally released in 2011 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and PC.

A remaster of hugely influential action RPG Dark Souls is coming to Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 25, Bandai Namco has announced. Demon's Souls' servers may still be going strong two years after release, but however long they do last, I'd bet Dark Souls' servers will certainly last much longer. Bandai Namco have confirmed that there are no plans to bring this collection to the West, meaning that imports are your only option locally. For the Nintendo Switch, the game will be available in 1080p with 30 fps in TV mode. PC versions of the game will feature native 4K, all textures 2K unconverted with 60 fps.

When first released on PC, Dark Souls was just a port of the console version due to being rushed upon release. VaatiVidya, who is known for creating SoulsBorne lore videos, took it to Twitter and claimed that the remastered version would use Dark Souls III engine assets, HDR lightning, and a few other enhancements for PS4 Pro version.

Along with graphical changes, the concurrent online player count has been increased to 6 players for all the platforms. According to Polygon, what the remastered edition will be doing, will be improving the game's graphics and screen-rate-per-second while allowing owners of newer gen consoles to play the game as well.
