Just got an email from Amazon.

Hello,

Unfortunately, the release date for the item(s) listed below was changed by the supplier, and we need to provide you with a new estimated delivery date based on the new release date:

"Dark Souls II - Black Armour Edition (PC CD)"
Estimated arrival date: May 02 2014

Probably has more to do with the company supplying Amazon customers with their orders in that region.

I would rage hard.
I had three days of vacation starting from April 25th and I was planning to put them to good use with Dark Souls 2.

Just got the same email. Fingers crossed is just a retail supply and logistics issue. Though I will say my patience has been tested a fair bit by this whole ordeal *grrrrrrr*

But Durante already has preview/final build apparently?

Unless...

*dun-dun-dunnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn*

Dark Souls 2: Prepare to Torch/Light-map from the Beta: Durante Day One Edition happens, and that's what the article for PC gamer really is for. "What From can learn from 'amateur' modders."

These unofficial key resellers just rip them out of retail copies, so this says nothing about the digital release.
Wait... I think I bought my preorder from an unofficial key reseller. Balls. I've used them for years and never had any issues.

So this officially confirms that the lighting is getting patched in. But the Steam version is still going to release on the 25th.


Steam version inferior confirmed.

Lol what? I hope all of that was sarcasm. The only mention of lighting being added is here, on Neogaf. No-one from FROM or NAMCO have stated anything to that extent.

I'm going to be so pissed if the Steam version is also delayed. There better be a good reason...

Official UK Twitter. I don't see Namco as being a company that will have good communication channels.
Some how I get the feeling the person manning the twitter account isn't going to know about distribution changes on the spot. That and their HQ for Europe is in France.
