Gee, I thought there wasn't supposed to be any downloadable content for this game.

From Software producer Takeshi Miyazoe made headlines by saying there would be no DLC for Dark Souls II because the team wanted to "deliver a full game, the full experience, to fans who purchase the package on day one."

Ah, but you can't ignore the lure of extra income, right? Bandai Namco has announced that the challenging experience will indeed expand this summer thanks to three new DLC chapters. This will be called The Lost Crowns Trilogy and the first, entitled Crown of the Sunken King, will be ready to go on July 22 in North America. Players will have to recover King Vendrick's crowns and presents players with "an entirely different world within the Dark Souls II universe, where stepped pyramids span a vast underground cavern."

The second DLC, called Crown of the Old Iron King, is set for August 26. The final chapter, Crown of the Ivory King, will arrive on September 24. All DLC packages will be available on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, and they'll be $10 apiece. A Season Pass ($25) will grant you access to all three chapters, but this option is only available to PC players.

Oh, come on. You're not really disappointed at the prospect of more DSII content, are you?
