Permissions and credits

This mod is a huge lore-friendly expansion that tries to make you experience a fresh but also familiar Dark Souls!

DarkSouls: Prepare to Die Again
has been on a long journey over the years, from inception as a Scholar of the First Sin-esque expansion of Dark Souls 1 to a complete rework of the scope of progression and regaining that feeling of the first run through your journey across this gaming classic. Much has now been adapted - from the addition of new spells to upgraded bosses and areas given much more meaning and a sense of cohesion across both the first and second half of the title.

Cut content has been restored, questlines brought to new glory and now also adapting your playthrough of the game... there's more to discover, more to see, all in a fashion that rings true to the design and philosophy of that original playthrough.

There are changes made to the game version number. That means that you can only connect to other players using this mod. Vanilla players are uneffected.
Please not that the online experience might not be perfect due to not being tested that much.

This is the version for Dark Souls: Prepare to die edition. You can find the remastered-version here: https://www.nexusmods.com/darksoulsremastered/mods/292
