The second chapter, “ Crown of the Old Iron King ”, will release on Tuesday, August 26 for PC and Xbox 360, followed by the PlayStation 3 release on Wednesday, August 27.

The final DLC of the trilogy, “ Crown of the Ivory King ”, is slated to launch on Tuesday, September 23 for PC and Xbox 360, with–you guessed it–the PlayStation release arriving the day after on Wednesday, September 24.

There will also be a Season Pass for the entire The Lost Crowns trilogy via Steam and PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3, which became available on Wednesday, June 4.

We are pleased to offer this new Dark Souls experience with The Lost Crowns trilogy to players seeking for more challenges!” said Herve Hoerdt, vice president of IP strategy, marketing and public relations at BANDAI NAMCO Games Europe. “ With this Season Pass, Bandai Namco Games is pleased to extend the Dark Souls experience over this summer!”

In Crown of the Sunken King , you’re sent on a journey to reclaim the crowns that Drangleic’s King Vendrick once owned. The DLC is touted to feature an entirely different world within the Dark Souls II universe, where stepped pyramids span a vast underground cavern.

According to the DLC’s accompanying lore, it is said that the crowns lay buried beneath the cavern, and you must not assume that these crowns will be unguarded.

If you own an Xbox 360 and have Xbox Live Gold, you may be interested to hear that Dark Souls is now temporarily available for free via Games with Gold .
