Due out this winter for 1,200 MS points on Xbox Live and $15 on the PlayStation Network, the Artorias of the Abyss expansion brings additional explorable areas, more bosses and standard enemy types, non-player characters, and equipment.

Additionally, the site reports that the upcoming Prepare to Die edition of Dark Souls--due August 24--will be available in North America through Steam. Previously, only Microsoft's Games for Windows Live service was confirmed, which had thousands of gamers up in arms, decrying it as "unpopular," "inconvenient," and "difficult to use."

Dark Souls was released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in October 2011 to a glowing critical reception. It went on to ship more than 1.5 million units worldwide and was October's sixth-best-selling title.
