Developer FromSoftware has announced that the servers for the Dark Souls series on PC — including Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition, Dark Souls: Remastered, Dark Souls II, and Dark Souls III — will remain offline until after Elden Ring launches on Feb. 25, 2022. The servers were originally shut down due to a dangerous Remote Code Execution (RCE) exploit that allows someone to potentially steal information off of your computer, and while the Blue Sentinels mod for Dark Souls III temporarily fixes the vulnerability, FromSoftware is currently developing a permanent fix for the issue for all of the Dark Souls games.
The person who discovered the latest RCE alleges that there are serious issues with all of the Souls games’ shared network infrastructure and said they believe it’s “inevitable” that Elden Ring will feature many of the same exploits, which will “probably be ported without issues and used on release by malicious cheaters.”
Fortunately, the hacker likely didn’t have malicious intent — a screenshotted post on Discord explains that the hacker discovered the exploit, and after receiving no response from Bandai Namco and FromSoftware about the issue, they started using it on Twitch streamers to get their attention. A community-made anti-cheat mod patched the exploit shortly after it was brought up in the Dark Souls community, but the game still wasn’t completely safe to play online.
Elden Ring is expected to release Feb. 25, 2022 on Xbox Series X, Xbox One systems, PS5, PS4, and PC. Elden Ring preorders are available now if you'd like to purchase your copy of the game before it arrives.
