For the Remastered version of Dark Souls, the online player count has been increased from 4 to 6. This means that a host player will be able up to summon up to 3 additional players/friends into their game through a combination of items. These "Co-Op Phantoms" can then help the host clear a path to an area's boss and then fight it. The host player will open themselves up to invasion by up to 2 non-friendly/PvP phantoms as well.
Enter a dark world filled with despair and threaded by hope where your ability to creatively strategize, learn and overcome unpredictable and unique challenges determines your fate. Dark Souls will demand your absolute concentration, unflinchingly punish your mistakes, but reward your ability to learn from death. Each challenge is a mind game met with endless combinations that will test your ability to creatively strategize a way to conquer unimaginable monsters and progress deeper into this bleak and forbidding environment filled with the undead.
