With over 900 deaths and and over a month spent on the endeavor, the community of Twitch has vanquished Gwyn, thus beating Dark Souls.

It took them a while to figure out. For a very long while, it looked like this:



But, as Kotaku details, the community eventually found a system that works:

After a few days of fumbling around, it was decided to change the rules of the game or call it quits. In some circles, this disqualified Twitch Plays Dark Souls from being a legitimate playthrough; it subverted the way Dark Souls plays. They essentially changed it from a 3D action game into a turn-based affair.

Was it cheating? Sure. Was it the only way for Twitch Plays Dark Souls to move forward? Probably. Does that mean their achievements are meaningless? No.

Soon enough, they beat the Asylum Demon.

A little later, they beat the game's hardest boss, Orstein and Smough. With O&S slaughtered, it seemed a matter of time until they'd actually beat the game.

That time, as it turned out, was on Saturday. 43 days, eight hours, 14 minutes, and 23 seconds after attempting the nearly impossible, Twitch Plays Dark Souls was able to finally say they'd beaten Dark Souls. They only died 904 times, too!

Naturally, they are already on Dark Souls 2 and it's just as interminable to watch.

Which you can do right here.

You can find the Dark Souls hat tip in one of the final missions, from a branch off the main story line of Blood and Wine's 'Beyond Hill and Dale' quest. The Easter egg brings with it the nice shiny take-home prize of a level 46 sword known as Gesheft, which is a relic class weapon, and offers up to 20% extra intensity across all signs, has three rune slots, and deals out up to 627 damage in its base form.

I'm weary about giving away the easter egg itself, so we'll hold off on that for now...what do you guys think of the Dark Souls nod in itself though? Kind of cool. The guys over at VG24/7 broke it down though, and provided a nice screenshot of the Easter egg too, if you want to check it out here.
