With the debut of Dark Souls Remastered on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC (and later Nintendo Switch), you might be wondering what it is about this series that makes people go totally wild. It’s widely regarded as one of the most difficult games around, and for good reason. It’s hard. But it’s nothing you can’t handle. Given that the game has been re-released for a new crop of players who never experienced the start of the well-received franchise from the beginning, you don’t even have to go back and force yourself to play a mediocre version.
You can experience From Software’s excellent dark fantasy from the beginning, though as a newbie you’ll want to take heed of these tips before trying to proceed. Running straight in and treating it like any other game certainly won’t work here. We’ve got some important tips for those of you looking to start playing Dark Souls for the first time, so you can hopefully avoid any broken controllers out there.
