Servers for dark souls series has been offline for PC players for months due to a Remote Code Execution (RCE) exploit that could allow hackers to take over your computer, but developer FromSoftware is restoring waiters, according to a Gamer on PC article published on friday.
“We are currently in the process of restoring the servers online for the dark souls series on PC,” FromSoftware told Gamer on PC in an email. “We plan to gradually restore the online service for each game, bringing the servers back for dark souls 3 once we have completed the necessary work to correct the problem. We will provide additional updates as soon as the restoration schedule is finalized. We would like to thank all of our players for their patience and understanding as we work to resolve this issue.
Bandai Namco spokesperson Hiro Ito shared the same FromSoftware statement with us when we asked for comment and clarified that dark souls 3 will be the first game to have its servers restored. However, it is not known exactly when the restoration will begin.
February 9, Bandai Namco and FromSoftware said in a post on the dark souls Twitter account that they had “identified the cause” of the issues, were “working to fix them” and that the dark souls PC games would remain offline until the February 25 release of Ring of Elden. The two companies also said they have ensured that “the necessary security measures are in place to [Elden Ring] on all target platforms.
