If you’re excited for Dark Souls 3, chances are you own at least one of the games on Steam, and you’re getting a discount because of it.


Namco has detailed the pre-order bonuses for the PC and PlayStation 4 versions of Dark Souls 3. This follows the announcement that Xbox One users get the original Dark Souls backwards compatible for free when pre-ordering.

For PC players who pre-purchase the game on Steam, the store will automatically apply a $5 discount if you own the original Dark Souls, Dark Souls 2, or Scholar of the First Sin edition. The discount also applies to the deluxe edition, which includes the season pass.

This comes in at around 8 percent for the regular edition and 6 percent for the deluxe. Namco will throw in the game’s digital soundtrack with pre-orders, too.

For those buying from the PlayStation Store, they’ll get the digital soundtrack. In the US, you get both the soundtrack and the Fire Fades dynamic theme.

You get a dynamic theme in Europe only if you buy the deluxe edition,

Dark Souls 3 is out April 12 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
