Additional Content

Content provided after the initial release of the game.

For the release of the game for PC, additional content was added to supplement the original game.

The additional content was later provided for download for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles.


  • Accessing the Additional Content1:

The three prerequisites

The above steps will allow the Crystal Golem in The Duke's Archives to add a Broken Pendant to your inventory after it dies. You can kill the Crystal Golem before saving Dusk, but it will not give you the Broken Pendant. As long as the Broken Pendant is in your inventory, it doesn't matter whether Dusk is alive or not. She may be dead, and you can still access the Additional Content.

Then, follow these steps

  1. Go to The Duke's Archives. There will be a Crystal Golem near the elevator after the first bonfire.
  2. Kill this Crystal Golem. A Broken Pendant will be added to your inventory automatically.
  3. Go back to where you fought Dusk's Golden Crystal Golem in Darkroot Basin; a portal will appear there.
  4. Examine this portal. A cutscene will trigger. After the cutscene, you will be in Sanctuary Garden.
