Dark Souls PC Prepares Games for Windows Live to Die


The original Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition for PC has been operating on the Games for Windows Live platform since its launch in August 2012, but beginning sometime next month the game will fully migrate to Steam.

I have specifically avoided buying the PC version of Dark Souls due to its integration with GFWL, so I’m particularly jazzed to hear this news. Looks like my Steam wishlist for the upcoming annual holiday sale just got one game longer!

These are the details you need to know about the migration process:

•Games for Windows Live users will be able to redeem their Games for Windows Live Tokens on STEAM to get Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition at no additional cost. To find your Games for Windows Live Token, please head to the support webpage at: http://support.xbox.com/en-US/billing/prepaid-codes/locate-games-for-windows-live-tokens

•In the month of November there will be a period by which Games for Windows Live Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition users will be able to transfer their Save Data (character & progress) and Achievements over to their STEAM accounts.

•Players will still be able to use their Games for Windows Live Tokens to redeem the STEAM version of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition at no additional cost even after the migration period ends; but game Save Data and Achievements transfer functions may not be available.

•Games for Windows Live Rankings will not be transferred to STEAM.
