Electronic Gaming Monthly cites a source "close to the project," who says DLC for Dark Souls is currently being "finished up," with a targeted release date set for the first quarter of this year. Unfortunately, EGM's report does not offer any further details on the rumored forthcoming content.

A Namco Bandai representative told GameSpot, "Namco Bandai Games America does not comment on rumor or speculation."

Set in a sinister fantasy world, Dark Souls features a variety of outdoor areas that are seamlessly connected to one another. The game also features a distinctive approach to multiplayer, with various new tweaks allowing players to help or hinder each other's progression.
