The PC version of Dark Souls is moving away from using the Games for Windows Live system. Bandai Namco announced that owners of the notoriously difficult roleplaying game will be able to transfer their GFWL licenses to Steam next month. Save data and achievements will also transfer, but the hardest of the hardcore won’t do that, right? They’ll hunker down and start over from the beginning because adversity is a character-builder.
According to Microsoft, the reports of GFWL’s imminent demise were exaggerated. Despite their assurances, many publishers and developers have opted to leave the GFWL ecosystem and turn to other solutions.
