Read our full Dark Souls II: Crown of the Ivory King review

Bandai Namco has announced  that Crown of the Ivory King, the final chapter in Dark Souls II‘s Lost Kings downloadable content trilogy, has been pushed back from September 24 to September 30 on Steam and Xbox Live, and October 1 on PlayStation Network.

Note that the confirmation comes from the publisher’s U.K. website, and there’s been no word of a similar delay for the U.S. release. We’ve reached out for clarification, but it’s worth noting here that we’ve also not yet received a review code for the upcoming add-on. Crown of the Ivory King sends players to a desolate, frozen waste filled with horrifying, ice-covered monsters.

The previous two chapters, Crown of the Sunken King and Crown of the Old Iron King, expanded Dark Souls II‘s richly-painted world with compelling new areas and brutal new enemies, but played their narrative cards close to the chest. We hope this concluding chapter will shed some light on the overarching story that ties together this three-part adventure.

Both prior chapters are available for download from the Xbox Marketplace, Steam, and PlayStation Store, as will be Crown of the Ivory King when it arrives.
