From Software is issuing a free update to the original copies of Dark Souls 2 to prepare for the coming additions of the Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin expanded re-release.

To name a few, changes include shorter load times on the PlayStation 3, gameplay enhancements, new story elements, better rewards from multiplayer combat and a new character. To see the complete list of updates visit Bandai Namco's Tumblr.

Because of the size of the update Dark Souls 2's servers will be brought down for maintenance on February 4th from 9am EST until 12pm EST. Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin is scheduled to release on April 7th on PS3, 360, XB1, PS4 and PC.
