You can now die in Dark Souls without Microsoft knowing

, | News

Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition on PC no longer uses Games for Windows Live. Publisher Bandai Namco has released the update that removes GFWL and replaces it with full Steamworks functionality. Players can die as many times as they need to and they won’t have to deal with Microsoft’s ill-made Xbox 360 to PC gaming client. Players that have hard-earned progress in Dark Souls need not fret. A transfer process will be available until February 16th that will allow players to shift their achievements and save data to the new system.

In related news, Microsoft continues to hope that you’ll forget how bad GFWL has been when Windows 10 launches. The latest build of the upcoming PC operating system has an Xbox App.
