Once upon a time, a small segment of the video game community relished challenging experiences. During the early 2010s, this “masochist” segment of players seemingly enjoyed difficulty spikes, unforgiving enemies, and cryptic lore. But not all was as it seemed. As more gamers embraced the conquest, more soon discovered that fairness and impartiality reigned supreme. Today, the video game community is now more poised than ever to accept the most difficult of challenges. And a notorious video game publisher seems ready to obliged with its most difficult franchise: the Dark Souls trilogy.

The Best Things in Life

Fans of a beloved series from Bandai Namco and FromSoftware have long touted fairness and exhilaration as the principle reason for their undying devotion. As the “git gud” culture has slowly passed, more fans embraced the difficulty spikes of the “Soulsborne” franchise. The culminating achievement of this action-adventure genre was demonstrated when Sekiro won the 2019 game of the year. Now, publisher Bandai Namco is rewarding fans with a free offer.

By simply replying to Bandai Namco EU’s tweet, the publisher will enter fans into a drawing to win a free copy of the Dark Souls trilogy. The only requirement is that fans reply to the above tweet with the names of the five Lords of Cinder as well as their preferred video game platform. Available platforms include PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Bandai Namco will announce the winners on April 27th.

For those players unfamiliar with the Dark Souls series, the names of the five Lords of Cinder are as follows:

  • Ludleth of Courland
  • Abyss Watchers
  • Aldrich, Devourer of Gods
  • Yhorm the Giant
  • Lothric, Younger Prince


Discounts and sales are routine; however, few video game developers and publishers give away free content. Even fewer are willing to part with their most popular intellectual property. Perhaps no series is more popular for Bandai Namco than the Dark Souls Trilogy. By answering a simple question, fans have the opportunity to play the beloved series for free on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
