Here's Namco Bandai with the news:

SAN JOSE, Calif., (June 4, 2014) – Leading video game publisher and developer BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. and FromSoftware today announced the impending arrival of three new DLC chapters to the critically acclaimed Dark Souls™ II for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PC via Steam. These three new DLC chapters known as The Lost Crowns trilogy will take Dark Souls II fans through entirely original areas to face a slew of unknown enemies, overcome diabolic challenges, and take-on fearsome bosses. Crown of the Sunken King, the first chapter in this DLC trilogy, will be available in the Americas on July, 22, 2014 followed by the DLC launches ofCrown of the Old Iron King on August 26, 2014 and Crown of the Ivory King on September 24, 2014. A Season Pass program will also be offered for the entire The Lost Crowns trilogy via Steam for PC players in the Americas.

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.

Rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB, Dark Souls II is available for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PC. The game is available for purchase now at video game retailers and on Steam in the Americas. Each individual chapter of The Lost Crowns trilogy will be available for purchase in the Americas via the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Marketplace, and Steam for a SRP of $9.99 USD. The Steam season pass encompassing all three chapters of The Lost Crowns trilogy will be available for a SRP of $24.99 USD.

    Well there goes your all achievement run @shane, unless you get the DLC.

      The Dark Souls 1 expansion didn't have achievements. This may not! *fingers crossed*

      The Achievements in DSII weren't really much of a challenge anyway, still, it would be irritating to lose that 1000/1000.

    Quite expected since there are quite a few weapons hidden in the source code.

    I just caved in on my Ladel only run. Playing properly again will be a nice change.

      Haha that'a masochistic if ever I heard

    I'll get them but I might wait for them to get cheap. $25USD will probably equal $50AU here and I don't think I even paid that much for the game itself.

      $26.99 on Steam

    I guess they decided to consider doing DLC after all. Hopefully it's worth the wait and hopefully they remove the soul memory junk.

      I'm curious - what's this 'soul memory junk'?
      I was only online for about half the game, on and off (eventually turning it off when I straight-up never got any coop anymore, only PVP), so I'm not clued in to whatever the negative consequences of soul memory might've been. (Aside from, y'know - only ever getting invaded and not being able to co-op, once you got it too high.)

    It's probably just worth hanging out for the PS4 complete edition

    guess im going to get another 3 sick leaves this year

    Ill just wait for them to add in what they took out to sell as DLC... fools
