Namco Bandai have confirmed the release date of Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition for the PC. Prepare to die over, and over, and over again on August 24, 2012. Hidetaka Miyazaki, Director of FromSoftware, came on stage at the recent Namco Bandai Gamer's Day to make the announcement, saying that the fan petition was the key in creating the PC edition of the game. Sure they listened, but since the game is coming out for Games For Windows Live, not Steam, maybe they should have listened a bit closer.

Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition will include an enhanced PVP mode which allows players to, "more closely assemble battles against one another online in an all-out fight to the death," according to Namco. Additionally, the developers have added a new chapter to the game, called Artorias of the Abyss, to help further expand the lore of the world of Lordran. The chapter will have new areas to explore, enemies to encounter, and bosses to kill.
