Dark Souls 2: Crown of the Ivory King DLC delayed

Enemies will now literally – as well as figuratively – kick your arse.

Dark Souls 2: Crown of the Ivory King, the final piece of Dark Souls 2‘s Lost Crowns DLC trilogy, has been pushed back a week.

Previously scheduled to launch on 24 September (this Wednesday), Crown of the Old Ivory King has now been delayed until 30 September (next Tuesday). While Dark Souls 2 fans eager for the last part of the Lost Crowns trilogy will likely be a bit disappointed, I suspect the overworked Peter Parrish is breathing a sigh of relief. Unless he’s expecting to have loads to do next week, anyway, in which case he’s probably sobbing into a pillow.

Crown of Old Ivory King sees players exploring a winter wonderland full of crystal horses and ice golems… and a big, gloomy castle. And probably quite a lot of YOU DIED. We’re guessing it’s accessible through the Shrine of Winter (which has a snake altar and is winter-themed), although there are a few other possibilities. Let’s just hope it’s not in Brightstone Cove Tseldora or I will never ever play this DLC.

You can have a look at some screenshots forĀ Crown of the Old Ivory King over here.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
