From Software isn't changing the landscape of downloadable content with these additions to the core game, but both Crown of the Sunken King and Crown of the Old Iron King feel like logical additions to the rich and expansive world of Dark Souls II. Old Iron King's focus on fire is a welcome change, and despite some uninspired moments, it has the atmosphere and challenge we've come to expect from the series. Souls fans will likely find something to enjoy here.

The unique genius of the Souls formula is that it’s constructed on a foundation of frustration that players are invited to conquer. ...They convince players that, given enough time, patience and study, these games can not only be overcome, but mastered. Dark Souls 2: Crown of the Old Iron King gets the formula right, but only if you’ve invested the time required to match its level of difficulty with your own and you’re willing to listen to what it’s trying to tell you.

From Software is keenly aware of this, as evidenced by a memorable, and more importantly, playable flashback sequence of Dark Souls II. What is noteworthy about Crown of the Old Iron King is how it conveys a deep sense history without the help of a flashback. Its slumbering defenses await your arrival, just as they have for countless heroes before and for those who'll follow in your footsteps. It's these guardians who act as the connective tissue between past and present, formidable as always.
