Dark Souls Scholar of the First Sin PS4

Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is already darn well hard enough on the PlayStation 4, but a weapon degradation bug makes it even more impenetrable. For those out of the loop, here's why From Software's quality assurance team is currently hanging its head in shame: gear degrades based on frames, and because the studio's next-gen re-release runs at 60 frames-per-second, it means that it perishes twice as fast as it should. How the heck did no one pick up on that glitch – especially seeing as it was present on the PC?

The good news is that it's going to get solved. "The fix will be issued and will be apparent for people running the game at 60FPS as the durability decrease rate is linked to the frame rate," a studio spokesperson told Kotaku. There'll be other tweaks in the forthcoming patch, but there's no word on a date just yet. You may want to postpone your jaunt through Drangleic for the time being, then – fortunately, there's always Bloodborne to keep you occupied.
