Four weeks after the fix, the Dark Souls 3 PC servers went down again

The Dark Souls 3 PC servers are offline again, although they were only restored by FromSoftware four weeks ago.

The Dark Souls Twitter account announced the news (below), saying that the Steam servers were down once again. No explanation was given as to what the issue is or how long it will be an issue, but the developer said they are actively investigating the issue and trying to resolve it.

“Currently, there is a confirmed issue with Dark Souls 3 online games via the Steam platform,” FromSoftware said. “We are investigating the cause of the issue and will update you as more details become available.”

Fans were also thanked for their patience, but given the regularity of online issues that crop up in the Dark Souls series, it’s perhaps not surprising that responses and retweets to FromSoftware’s announcement were filled with complaints.

Before the Dark Souls 3 servers were brought back online four weeks ago, they had been down for eight months. The servers were first shut down after an exploit was discovered that allowed other players to take over the user’s PC, and FromSoftware has since released incremental updates to bring back the online capabilities of its games.

Nothing indicates that the current server issue is related to this exploit, but the original Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2 are both still offline due to the same issue.

The exploit was discovered just a month before FromSoftware’s release of Elden Ring, leading to fans who were looking forward to the game worrying that it would affect its multiplayer components. Fortunately, however, Elden Ring was able to launch without major problems and became an incredible success.

However, it had to deal with some hacking issues after an infamous Dark Souls hacker appeared in Elden Ring and forced illegal items into players’ inventories, resulting in them being banned. Even stranger, the game’s secret underwear was also used by trolls to ban other players.
