Dark Souls 3 DLC Leaks Early on Xbox One

It has been a dark, cold several months for Dark Souls 3 fans who have been awaiting more DLC for the latest entry in everyone’s favorite rage-quitting encouragement franchise. The first DLC, Ashes of Ariandel, was announced by Bandai Namco to release on October 25th. However, some fans were reportedly able to download the new DLC early on Xbox One.

Several posts on Reddit have surfaced from Dark Souls 3 Season pass owners that were able to access the new DLC on Xbox One’s store by searching for Ashes of Ariandel and hitting “Install”. Users such as Goffer54 on Reddit whose screenshot seen below shows him successfully downloading the new DLC. were among the first wave of people reporting this early leak.


Bandai Namco had this to say about the early DLC release:

“Due to a logistical error, the Dark Souls III Ashes of Ariandel DLC was made available for download for a short period of time for Xbox One players. We have since corrected this scheduling error and the Dark Souls III Ashes of Ariandel DLC will now be available on October 24, 2016 at 3 PM PDT for Steam players and October 24, 2016 at 9 PM PDT for console players. We regret any confusion this may have caused to players and Dark Souls III fans; we look forward to seeing everyone within the world of Ariandel.”

While the confusion will be unwelcome by many players, and even though I myself am a PS4 Dark Souls player, I for one can’t complain about the DLC now arriving a day early due to this “logistical error”. If there’s one thing I learned from playing Dark Souls, you have to look for the good in the unexpected. Especially when it’s a Lothric Knight that comes out of a cavern and stabs you in the guts.

Until Ashes of Ariandel arrives, if you’re not one of the lucky Xbox One users that was able to access the DLC early, why not watch the trailer for it here.  And for all of the latest news on the upcoming Dark Souls 3 DLC, stay tuned to all the goings-on here at Don’t Feed the Gamers.
