Multiplayer for Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition mysteriously stopped working on April 13, and folks are scratching their heads over the reason.
Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition multiplayer has gone missing
You’ll note April 13 is the same day Dark Souls 3 was released, but whether the third entry’s launch had anything to do with the issue is unknown.
Bandai Namco has been quiet on the matter despite reports being sent in, but thankfully, the company’s US community manager is on the case.
RE: Dark Souls PTDE Matchmaking. Not sure why it's being funky. Have made dev team aware – Will share any updates.

Some players theorize Bandai Namco changed things around to “free up resources” for Dark Souls 3’s multiplayer. Hopefully, the publisher will either issue a fix or explain what the problem is soon.
Those playing the current release might want to take a look at Dark Souls 3 game guide. We’re constantly updating it, so if you are having a hard time with anything in particular, hopefully we can help you out.
