Dark Souls Prepares For Steamworks

Well it's happened again, despite Games For Windows Live avoiding a merciful demise earlier this year, the slow painful death of the almost universally hated program continues. This time GFWL is going to feel it a bit more however, because now it's losing a soul we never knew it had. Dark Souls, to be precise, will be switching from GFWL to Steamworks next month. The following is an official statement from Bandai Namco;

We are very excited to announce that next month it will be possible for players to migrate their Dark Souls: Prepare to Die games, saves and achievements from the Games for Windows Live platform to Steam.

Games for Windows Live users will be able to redeem their Games for Windows Live Tokens on Steam to get Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition at no additional cost. (To find your Games for Windows Live Token, please head to the support webpage.)
In the month of November, there will be a period by which Games for Windows Live Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition users will be able to transfer their Save Data (characters + progress) and Achievements over to their Steam accounts.
Players will still be able to use their Games for Windows Live Tokens to redeem the Steam version of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition at no additional cost even after the migration period ends; but game Save Data and Achievements transfer functions may not be available.
Games for Windows Live Rankings will not be transferred to Steam.
The specific migration start and end dates will be available soon; however the migration period will begin sometime in November 2014 with more specific dates to come.

We will be sharing more information soon regarding the migration process soon, so stay tuned!

So there you go, not only will it be switching to Steamworks soon but they've also provided the means so that you won't lose all of your hard earned progress that many have sacrificed both blood and tears to achieve!
