Dark Souls PC owners can throw another log on the bonfire, because they have to wait until December for the game to transition over to Steam. Namco Bandai says it's finalizing the nuts and bolts of moving the action-RPG from Games for Windows Live to Steam, and more testing means the company's targeting the transition for next month rather than this one.

In its original announcement, Namco said owners will be able to redeem Dark Souls on Steam by using their GFWL tokens at no extra cost. Saves and achievements can survive the journey during a short migration period, but GFWL rankings will be flattened by a figurative cannonball rolling down a metaphorical staircase.

While Dark Souls is one of many to make the jump from GFWL, its successor is the latest to hop aboard the re-release train. Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin is coming to PS4 and Xbox One on April 7, 2015, as well as the original platforms of PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

In addition to bundling in the three DLC episodes, the new edition promises enhanced graphics on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Meanwhile, both existing and new Dark Souls 2 owners will get a chunky update for free, adding among other things an "expanded story featuring additional in-game events."
