The Dark Souls Compendium Is Finally Available After Multiple Delays--And It's On Sale
People are finally getting their orders.
It's been over six months since the Dark Souls Trilogy Compendium first went up for pre-order on Amazon, and the book has since been plagued by multiple delays that led some to believe it may not come out at all. But luckily for any fans who submitted their pre-order requests as far back as January, the guide is finally arriving on people's doorsteps. You can order a copy for yourself today, and it's even 40% off right now, selling for $30 with free Prime shipping on Amazon. Its list price is $50.
Dark Souls Trilogy Compendium
Dubbed "the ultimate Dark Souls reference book," the Dark Souls compendium is a stunning hardcover book with pages printed on premium art paper. Inside, you'll find everything you need to know about the critically acclaimed trilogy, from in-depth lore to detailed, illustrated maps and a chronicle of every piece of NPC dialogue in the three games. The book also includes a bookmark ribbon and four art prints you can hang on your walls.
German publisher Future Press, which has produced collector's edition guides for other games like Bloodborne and Horizon Zero Dawn, took to Twitter to clear up some of the confusion around the Dark Souls compendium's shipping delays. On April 29, Future Press tweeted that all copies were being printed on a high-quality printer in Europe, causing an initial delay to ensure quality control. Then, on July 15, the publisher updated its followers that the books were being held for two weeks by US customs for inspection. Finally, on July 23, Future Press confirmed that the books are now in stock at Amazon, despite conflicting information in Amazon's listing and in emails some people have received.
And fortunately, people are corroborating that claim, with many reporting that their copies have finally arrived.

So whether you've been on the fence about pre-ordering or are hearing about the compendium for the first time, it finally seems safe to place your order. There's no knowing how long it will be discounted at Amazon, where prices fluctuate frequently, so there's no better time to snag a copy for yourself or even a friend or family member (early Christmas present, perhaps?). Let us know in the comments down below--will you be picking up the Dark Souls Compendium now that it's finally shipping?
