Next Dark Souls 2 DLC sits on the iron throne, out now

Man, crowns must be easy to lose. Today marks the release of the second bit of Dark Souls 2 DLC, entitled "Crown of the Iron King." After searching for the Crown of the Sunken King in the first portion of Dark Souls 2, Crown of the Iron King promises "an entirely different environment to conquer," one filled with the hottest of video game staples, molten lava. Let's hope this Iron King person didn't drop his crown in there.

You can snag Crown of the Iron King on PSN, Xbox Live and Steam for $10. Alternatively, you can pick up the season pass, which grants access to all three pieces of Dark Souls 2 for $24.99. The final chapter of Dark Souls 2's DLC, "Crown of the Ivory King," launches on September 24.
