Dark Souls 2 servers will close, but not everywhere


One of the best experiences offered by From Software games is the possibility of playing together with a friend or simply invading the worlds of other players. This is something that has become a truly outstanding feature of all Dark Souls, as well as of the rest of the titles in the genre created by the company led by Hidetaka Miyazaki.

For this reason, it is essential that the servers of these games remain active so that the experience of these games is the one we all expect from them. However, From Software has announced in recent hours that the servers of Dark Souls 2, the only game in the saga that is not led by Miyazaki, will close its doors during the first quarter of next year 2024, although not on all platforms.

Dark Souls 2 servers will be shut down on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3

As we can see in the publication of X (Twitter) of the official account of the saga, the servers of Darks Souls 2 that will be closed are those that correspond to the versions of PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Considering that we are already two generations ahead of the Sony and Microsoft consoles, it is logical to stop supporting these versions, especially when there are later versions of the game that are better than the original ones that reached the market.

For those of you wondering when said closure will occur, From Software has confirmed that Dark Souls 2&https://digitalnewsweb.net/wp-content/cache/background-css/digitalnewsweb.net/?wpr_t=17138778968242; s servers on the aforementioned platforms will close on March 31, 2024. Therefore, if you own the second installment of the Dark Souls franchise for Xbox 360 and want to continue playing with your friends in that version, you will have about three months to make the most of the game&https://digitalnewsweb.net/wp-content/cache/background-css/digitalnewsweb.net/?wpr_t=17138778968217;s online features, since on that date they will no longer be available.

What about the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC versions? Well, as detailed in the publication itself, the Dark Souls 2 servers of these versions will not be affected by this change. Therefore, if we have the title in its most recent versions, there will be no problem to continue playing with all the features we can expect from it.
