About This Content

Delve into the Lost Crowns Trilogy with the DARK SOULS™ II Season Pass.

By purchasing this Season Pass, you will get at discounted price the three additional chapters from the Lost Crowns Trilogy and start a journey through underground caverns spanned with stepped pyramids, a massive tower engulfed by black mist or an ancient temple wrung with freezing storms, towering walls and a hollow emptiness.

This quest will lead you through:
-Crown of the Sunken King
-Crown of the Old Iron King
-Crown of the Ivory King

Those 3 chapters will lead you to confront new fearsome bosses and hosts of new enemies through entirely original areas and will respectively be released on July 22nd, August 26th, and September 30th.

Each DLC will be added to your Steam account as they become available.
The season pass requires "DARK SOULS™ II" to function.

Praise the Sun!


In all seriousness, Crown of the Sunken King and Crown of the Old Iron King are both very fun and challenging. I'll tell you though, Crown of the Sunken King has been kicking my butt at certain points. In my opinion, it's more difficult than that of the Old Iron King.

Crown of the Ivory King is just beautiful. All I can say is Be wary of horse. People who have gotten far enough will understand.

TL;DR - If you love the Dark Souls series, you WILL love the DLC.

11/10

Better level design and bosses than the actual game. Just get it, it's worth your money.

I have enjoyed all three of the DLC's immensely. The Lore, the new weapons and armor, the new enemys, and the new environments are all very enjoyable. For some they will be easier then others, but as an example without spoilers, my character is at max level (838) and I am on NG+5. The optional boss fight in the Ivory King DLC that is in the Frozen Wastes took me several hours to beat and many many attempts. The reward was well worth it though. The new DLC's unlock some new farming locations for Twinkling Titanite and Petrified Dragon Bone as well, if that is your type of thing as a completionist. Some players might find these areas easier/faster then Dragon Aerie. Some of the fights and areas may seem harder than you think they should be. I ran into that once or twice and every time it was because I was either missing something or not doing something that the developers put in to be used, *cough* Frozen Wastes *Cough* lol. 10/10 to all three of the DLC's. Happy gaming all.

You get all the DLC and pay slightly less than you would have if you bought them one by one.

This Season Pass is a must buy. All 3 Crown DLC's are brilliant. The level design in these DLC's are better than those in the main game. They're reminiscent of the level design in the first Dark Souls. They have more verticality to them and interloops. There are 3 boss fights in each DLC, with 1 in each being optional and encourages co-op. The Fume Knight, and Alonne boss fights are arguably the best in the game. There are also a number of new weapons, armor, spells which will even add more customization options to players. Get it, it's definitely worth your money.

The DLCs offer a somewhat better experience than the core game, the level design is closer to Dark Souls and that's good, there are new area mechanics making each of them unique and 2/3 of the bosses (non recycled ones) are pretty good, a couple of them probably being the best fights of the game. Oh, and AWESOME NPC trolls.
As a downside some rooms are just filled up with enemies that will aggro together no matter what, kind of frustrating.

The Season Pass is a fun set of DLC. None of them are quite as good as Artorias of the Abyss from Dark Souls, but they are generally better in design than the areas from the main Dark Souls II game and are highly recommended for fans of Dark Souls II.

Pros:
* Good level design, levels in the DLC are fun to explore
* At least one cool boss per DLC
* Bunch of new weapons and armor for each DLC, Fromsoft doesn't try to nickle and dime you with new skins and certain weapons even have new moves and abilities

Cons:
* No NPCS - none of the areas have any real NPC characters to enhance the story
* Some recycled enemies - bosses of the challenge areas are recycled from the game and/or the same DLC.
* Lackluster rewards - the crowns themselves are pretty lame rewards for beating each DLC, the weapons and armor you get by playing through them are better.
* Repetitive story - the stories of the areas in each DLC are very similar, they are not super different in terms of the scenarios you encounter.

Probably one of the best games of 2014 and yet still not as good as Darksouls 1. I would absolutely recommend this game to any fan of the series, or basically anyone.

Best money I've spent in a long time. Dark Souls 2 is probably the best game I've played in the last few years and I honestly believe gamers who do not believe this is a good game should give it a bigger chance. It is an acquired taste and is exceptionally difficult but once you get into it, you will never look back.

Dark Souls II is an amazing game that I've stuck over 150 hours into, so I definitely recommend the Season Pass. All the new DLCs have been great. Not only is it great content with the new areas, weapons/armor, items, enemies & bosses, but it's also very challenging. It's harder than the main game for sure. If you don't like Dark Souls II, or any of the Souls games, then do not get the Season Pass. It's as simple as that.

Wasn't at all challenging and wasn't at all worth $10 for each of the 3 DLC's.

Crown of the Sunken King had the best environment out of the three; the enemies were incredibly predictable and weak, the bosses were a disappointment, and it added little other content in the way of items and story. Hardest enemy in the game is Jester Thomas, an invading NPC. This dlc includes EASY PVE, low effort nashandra reincarnation that spams flame swath and summons velstadt, wannabe Kalamet dragon boss Sinh, flower petal skirt, and nothing else worth mentioning.

Crown of the Old Iron King was the shortest DLC of the bunch. EXTREMELY linear. Best part of the DLC was the Sir Alonne Boss battle which made me reminisce for Smough & Ornstein. This DLC includes a blue Smelter Demon, cheap NPC invasion that'll run away from you, Sir Alonne boss (very cool) and his armor set and a DiaKatana, and smelter 2.0.

Crown of the Ivory King was the better of the three DLC's adding the most in game items (armor, weapons, spells), bosses, pvp, and pve. It introduced a companion system that is very unappealing because typically summon help is unreliable and incompetent. The level design for the ivory king is better than the other two DLC's as previously unacceptable areas are unlocked as you work your way through your objectives.

Don't buy the season pass. If you're dead set on buying DLC, I encourage you to wait until FromSoftware releases an "All DLC included / Prepare to die" edition of the game.
