Dark Souls is now available as a free download, just so long as you have an Xbox Live Gold subscription.

Usually £14.99, Dark Souls has been stripped of its price tag between the 1st-15th June 2014 as part of June’s Xbox Live Games With Gold promotional scheme.. To get in on a unique RPG experience, you’ll just need an active Xbox Live Gold subscription (which you really should have anyways!) and an internet connection capable of grabbing you the 3.81GB of game data you’ll need. It really is that simple.

Game Description:

Dark Souls is an action RPG (role playing game) set in a rich, dark fantasy universe. Tense dungeon crawling, fearsome enemy encounters and groundbreaking online features combine for a truly unique RPG experience. Dark Souls breaks down barriers with a seamless world design that encourages exploration and fosters an adaptable gameplay experience. The unerring foundation of challenge and reward will engulf you and offer an unparalleled sense of achievement.

Make the short trip over to the Xbox Games Store in order to grab the game for free.

Of course, this means that Saints Row The Third is back up to its usual price. If you didn’t grab that when you could, we’re afraid you’re going to have to pay for it!

  1. I bought this game towards the end of last year when Microsoft was doing that big sell on digital xb360 games for $5 and yea this game kicked my Butt everytime I would finally pass and area something unexpected would happen then death a lot of death. So anyone picking up be careful and take your time don’t get mad if you die its just how the game is

  2. Part of how we play video games is indicative of how we learn something. There are 3 main ways to learn: visual, auditory, and tactile. Most people have a combination of the 3 different ways. Although there is always exceptions. If visual you like pretty pictures, if auditory you like text, if tactile you like to learn to do it yourself and are always the person who if given something and starts playing with it. For example, you’re given a deck of cards and told you will be taught Poker. Without instructions from the teacher you immediately remove the cards from the box and start playing with them. It really doesn’t occur to you that the instructor might have you do something else first like pair you up with a buddy before taking out the deck and playing with it. While Dark Souls might seem like the perfect game for this type of person it really isn’t because you need to unlearn how games like Skyrim, Fallout 3, Witcher, etc. has held your hand while demonstrating the game mechanics. That is why Dark Souls is so tough.
