Return to Lordran Dark Souls event repopulates the original RPG between Oct 4-14

Dark Souls

If you’ve ever got the itch to go back to the original Dark Souls, you might want to mark your calendar. Next week, fans from across the series will be popping back to Lordran to relive a classic. 

Play some more classics in our list of the best old games.

If you go back to Lordran from October 4, you’ll be able to blast on through, using summon signs and getting help with bosses, maybe even engaging in a spot of PvP with some invaders.

Perhaps your character has been sat outside a fog gate all this time. Fire it up next Tuesday and a kind stranger might take a bow and follow you into danger, helping you finally vanquish whatever evil bars your path.

The event began as something called Global Restart Day, but it’s now morphed into this yearly bash. Things officially kick off at5pm Central Daylight Time, and Return to Lordran runs until October 14, so there’s plenty of time to get through the game again, or perhaps for the first time. Normally this is extended until the 25th, but Dark Souls 3’s DLC release date somewhat got in the way.
