I requested Dark Souls 3 for review months in advance (Dom from DVD Fever contacts PR companies etc), Dom however told me that the guy that does the XBox One reviews had requested it already and that was that.
Anyhow, around 10 days before release I received a rather bulky package through Royal Mail. Strange thing is that it had Dom's full name on it but my address and the postmark / franking was from Bandai Namco.
So something like that I opened it up to discover an old looking wooden crate with DS3 logo on the front. Needless to say I contacted Dom and yes it was mine for review.
So here is the Dark Souls 3 Press Kit sent out to reviewers, not everyone got them apparently, Polygon only got a PC download code.
Pretty nifty and definitely something that I cherish and will do for years to come.
I do have images of contents also, there are parchments and wax sealed envelopes that hold the discs and a card with media link logins etc but can't add extra images onto a post yet.
