Action role-playing game Dark Souls 3 has been taken offline following reports of an exploit that could allow bad actors to take control of your PC.
Publisher Bandai Namco and developer FromSoftware have turned off player-v-player (PvP) servers, meaning gamers cannot play competitively.
The downtime affects Dark Souls 3, Dark Souls 2, and Dark Souls: Remastered.
But the purported exploit cannot affect console gamers and as such PvP remains available on PlayStation and Xbox.
Dark Souls 3 was released in 2016 to much fanfare and remains one of the top 100 most-played games on PC by active users, according to game-distribution service Steam.
Though the servers being down reduces functionality, the game remains entirely playable without PvP.
A tweet from the official Dark Souls 3 Twitter account said the servers had been "temporarily deactivated to allow the team to investigate recent reports of an issue with online services", adding: "We apologise for this inconvenience."
