DARK SOULS II DLC REVEALED: THE LOST CROWNS
Three new chapters coming to PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.

Today, Bandai Namco revealed that its smash-hit dungeon-crawling RPG, Dark Souls II, will be receiving a meaty DLC pack called The Lost Crowns.
The Lost Crowns is a compilation of three new "DLC chapters" that will kick off with Crown of the Sunken King, which will be available on all three platforms on July 22nd. It'll be followed by Crown of the Old Iron King on August 26th, and Crown of the Ivory King on September 24th. All release dates are North American.
Here's a description of the first DLC pack in the trilogy -- the Crown of the Sunken King -- directly from Bandai Namco:
Crown of the Sunken King, the first chapter in the trilogy, sends players on a journey to reclaim the crowns that Drangleic’s King Vendrick once owned. Crown of the Sunken King features an entirely different world within the Dark Souls II universe, where stepped pyramids span a vast underground cavern. It is said that one of the ancient crowns lay buried deep within these dark caverns; but surely such a valued item cannot sit unguarded. Players that seek adversity and glory will be rewarded with a crown that holds the strength of lords from times long past.
Each of the three chapters in The Lost Crowns trilogy will cost $9.99, but a season pass will net you all three for $24.99. We'll have a full review for each DLC chapter as they launch -- and we hope to go hands-on with the DLC beforehand -- so stay tuned to IGN for more in the coming days and weeks.
