Dark Souls 3 Steam Listing Suggest Multiplayer Will Return Shortly!
Mike Sanders / 8 months ago
Back in January FromSoftware officially shut down the multiplayer servers for all 3 Dark Souls titles as a security issue was discovered within the game’s ‘invasion’ system that could, rather ironically, allow someone to not just invade your game, but your system as well. – With the servers being shut down for over 6-months now, however, this has clearly been frustrating for people who, despite the title’s age, still enjoy playing it online.
Following a new update to the Steam DB website, however, it appears that for Dark Souls 3 at least, the servers might be set to get switched on again in the very near future!
Dark Souls 3 Multiplayer to Return?
The debug update represents the first time in (basically) years, and, overall, suggests that FromSoftware may be preparing to release a new official update for the game in the very near future. While content-specific updates for the title are, of course, long concluded, this can only suggest (if not confirm) that the new update will look to fix the security issue present in the online invasion element of the game.
In other words, possibly within the next few days, Dark Souls 3 may have its multiplayer element reactivated for everyone to (mostly) enjoy again!
Of course, though, this doesn’t address any specific updates for Dark Souls Remastered or Dark Souls 2. Additionally too, there are still more than a few cynical voices (my own included) suggesting that FromSoftware deliberately delayed the fix to promote as much traffic as possible for Elden Ring. – Overall though, if Elden Ring hasn’t been floating your boat, Dark Souls 3 should be back to normal (hopefully) very shortly!
