After being offline for months, the Dark Souls servers on PC will be coming back soon.

Earlier this year, FromSoftware shut down multiplayer functionality for the Dark Souls trilogy on PC due to reports of a massive security threat. Months later, those issues might be a thing of the past.

“We are currently in the process of restoring the online servers for the Dark Souls series on PC,” FromSoftware said via PC Gamer. “We plan to restore online service for each game progressively, bringing back servers for Dark Souls 3 once we complete the necessary work to correct the problem.”

“We will provide additional updates as soon as the restoration schedule is finalized.” FromSoftware continues. “We want to thank all our players for your patience and understanding as we work to fix this issue.”

Several weeks ago, publisher Bandai Namco insisted that server restoration was imminent. Low and behold, here we are. Maybe it took longer than any of us expected, but whatever! People will be back-stabbing Sen’s Fortress again in no time.

Given how critical multiplayer services are to Dark Souls, it’s pretty wild that the servers were offline for more than five months. Though FromSoftware probably had its hands full with Elden Ring‘s launch, which is somewhat understandable since it’s the brand-new title that’s selling as if there’s no tomorrow.
