No, thank you From Software! Lame!

It isn't that update. Don't care. Looks like I'll be needing a new pitchfork and torch for the coming mob.

Maybe they thought they could do something they realized they couldn't. Maybe they don't have the technical know-how to update the existing game to DX11. I'm not saying it isn't a bit frustrating, but then again I don't like the DS franchise because of graphics, I like it because of gameplay and story and lore. 
What exactly is with all the sucking up to devs as of late...

The entitlement in this community is repulsive!

6 months ago, Dark Souls 2 was what it was, you bought it, beat it, and liked it.

Now that some rebuilt updated version is coming out, you're suddenly all offended because you're not getting it for free!?? YOU ALREADY BEAT THE VERSION YOU BOUGHT. Where is it stated that by buying the base game, you are entitled to all free upcoming updates and versions?

Honestly, get over yourselves. Do I wish Scholar of the First Sin was free? Sure! Do I feel like I deserve to get it for free? NO. I knew what I was buying when I bought DS2, and I beat the game I bought.

Metro Redux was not free. GOTY editions are never free. Director's Cut editions are hardly ever (if not never) free. Why do you feel offended that this isn't free?

There is no reason not to upgrade all PC version to DX11 but greed. This is something I don't even expect from Activision, Ubisoft or EA

I ask myself, why in the hell did I buy the season pass.

You probably don't understand what it was like to game in an era where there was no DLC, no buggy releases, and games were worth their value. Now they're segregating a niche amount of player base and charging for the upgrade.

Do season passes normally allow you get get GOTY/Director's Cut editions for free?

 

How is this any different than buying Skyrim and all its DLC separately, then Bethesda releasing the Legendary Edition that came with all the DLC already? At least From is actually adding new things to its director's cut version rather than just boxing up DSII and all the DLC and reselling it.

Looks like its a new trend as of lately. Same goes to the GTA V delay situation.

Nope, but they certainly upgrade your existing game to a more complete version, like the Arkham Origins Season pass.

When did you buy DSII? Did you pre-order? Buy on release? Buy it afterwards?
