Cover art for Dark Souls 2 has been released by From Software and publisher Namco Bandai. You can view it in all its glory below.

Dark Souls 2 is expected in either late 2013 or early 2014. Thanks, AGB.

NeoGAF member Durante has been toiling away since Dark Souls’ overnight release on PC and has released a mod unlocking the action RPG’s fixed 720p resolution. The completely unofficial fix is not guaranteed in any way, so you should probably only grab it if you know what you’re doing.

Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition launches on August 24.
