First released in 2011 for PS3 and Xbox 360, Dark Souls was very well received by critics and would later be ported to PC as Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition. The first of a trilogy of games in the series that concluded with Dark Souls III in 2016 would go on to become playable on Xbox One in 2017 as part of Microsoft’s Backwards Compatibility program.
