Before Dark Souls III arrives you can snag a free copy of the first game. All you have to go and do is sign up to the Golden Joysticks store using your Steam ID or Email address and you’ll be sent a Steam code for the game by the end of the week. Do be aware, though, that this offer is only available to UK and EU residents.
It’s not the first free game Konami has given away to promote the release of the third game in the series. They’re pushing hard, not that they really need to since the series has such a huge following.
And I’m not one of them. You’re going to hate me for this but I’ve yet to pick up a Dark Souls game, so this offer might just be the time to finally experience what the grim world has to offer.
