Dark Souls: Remastered Announced for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch
Rumors had been swirling all day, but at Nintendo Direct Mini , Dark Souls: Remastered was formally announced for the Switch. If you're on a PS4 Pro, Xbox One X , or a PC powerful enough to run 4K, you can die at 60 FPS in an upscaled 4K resolution .

"There's a clear need in the VR market for a premium VR experience with high resolution display, integrated audio and the best components available today in a headset", Daniel O'Brien, general manager of HTC's VIVE in the US market, said in a statement. The new adapter supports automatic restart, wireless interference reduction, and automatic wireless channel detection that substantially improves the stability of the Wireless VR connectivity. "At this year's CES, it felt like a smithy unveiling a new range of instruments". In addition to the potentially clunkier design of the included headphones, the headset has come with two new settings known as "Alert" and "Conversation" mode so that you can adapt to anything happening in-game and in the real world without ever taking off your headset.

It has a 110-degree field of view, which puts it ahead of other mobile headsets and brings it into line with the Rift, Vive, and PSVR. There are now dual mics and dual cameras up-front for developers to make merry of and also there's a redesigned headstrap for more comfortable viewing.

The Vive Pro and Vive Wireless Adaptor are extremely promising, and we'll take a closer look at them later this year when we get them into the lab. HTC hasn't announced pricing or availability for the Vive Pro or Vive Wireless Adaptor, but expects to ship the adaptor Q3 2018. The adapter also includes software optimizations and microphone support. The Vive Pro impressed me with its sharpness, and now stands as the most crisp VR experience I've tried.

Worldwide sales of Vive Wireless adapter will start tentatively in the third quarter of 2018. It was responsive and accurate, offering an identical VR experience to the wired Vive.
