Dark Souls PC servers will remain deactivated until after the release of Elden Ring
The team of bandai namco has reported through the Twitter account of Dark Souls that the servers of the game in PC will remain deactivated until after the release of Elden Ring , That is, after February 25. This news includes all deliveries of the From Software series, and will not affect the versions in Game Consoles.
The news will sound you, come from an uncovered vulnerability on the servers of the Saga in general and Dark Souls III in particular, which forced them to close them “temporarily”.
