Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin Gameplay

Dark Souls 2 was met with critical acclaim when it launched in March of 2014, so it makes sense that From Software would bring it over to new-gen consoles for gamers who may have missed out after trading in their PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 prior to its release. I played through some of Dark Souls 2 on the PlayStation 3, but never got very deep into it, not only because games like TitanFall and inFAMOUS: Second Son had just released, but because I had gotten my butt kicked so bad that I set the game aside out of frustration. Thankfully, I have a new found interest in the Souls games after spending considerable time playing Bloodborne recently, so naturally, picking up Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin for the PlayStation 4 (also available on Xbox One) was an easy decision. After firing it up, and making my way through the intro movie, I couldn't believe how much better this game is compared to its last-gen counterpart. Upgraded enhancements in the form of 1080p and 60fps take this game to a whole new level in terms of presentation, and it's enough to where I believe this is one of the best remasters I've seen so far this gen. We put together a short video showcasing the splendid new look for Dark Souls 2. Did you pick up Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin to play it for the first time on new-gen consoles, or are you double dipping for the enhancements and added DLC?
