Dark Souls DLC is in the works - rumour

May include a new area called the 'Forest of Darkness'

Japanese developer From Software is prepping DLC for its critically acclaimed RPG Dark Souls.


That's according to EGM, which says it could be released in the first quarter of 2012.

It points out that From Software trademarked 'Yami no Mori' last year, which translates to 'Forest of Darkness'. Sounds like the kind of place that would fit perfectly into the Dark Souls universe.

From Software's previous title, Demon's Souls, didn't receive any post-release support from the developer, but we're hopeful its spiritual successor will.

The brutally difficult action RPG shipped 1.5 million copies worldwide in its first month, and managed to outsell Sony's Ico and Shadow of the Colossus HD Collection 3:1 on release, suggesting that DLC could be a worthwhile endeavour.

46,000 consumers have signed a petition requesting that publishing Namco Bandai release Dark Souls for PC.
