Dark Souls 2's last chapter of DLC, Crown of the Ivory King, is out this month, and From Software has released a new set of screens showing the wintery landscapes players will be exploring.

This is the first time we've really seen a snowy environment in a Souls game (apart from a tiny bit in the Painted World of Ariamis). It's a nice visual change for the franchise.

Dark Souls 2 has received a pretty hefty patch in preparation for new DLC content The Lost Crowns Episode One: Crown of the Sunken King, which is coming out later today.

As well as some quest fixes for the main campaign, the new patch makes some seemingly minor but in reality fairly big changes to PvP - tonnes of weapons have been rebalanced, you can no longer use health restoration items in multiplayer fights, and the stun-lock period following multiple attacks has been reduced.
