And that’s not all, In a rather decent gesture from Bandai Namco existing Dark Souls II owners will receive all the new tweaks and extras, minus the DLC, for free via a patch in the near future. There has currently been no word on whether this will include the graphical overhaul in the PC version Or whether save files will be transferable between old and new gen versions  of the game.
