Crown of the Old Iron King Features and Content
After buying the DLC, an item is added to the inventory: the Heavy Iron Key, which allows access to the DLC content. The player must go to the primal bonfire chamber in the Iron Keep and examine an obelisk to be teleported to a chamber with a locked door that opens with the key received for buying the DLC.
Players that do not have the DLC can be summoned into it by placing their signs in this chamber; the signs will show up inside the DLC.
It's also worth noting that with the DLC installed, the tablet in Majula that is normally too worn to read will now give instructions on how to enter the DLC.

The entrance to the DLC has 4 stone tablets surrounding it. They each read something different:
- "The forbidden is the path to the ancient king's domain."
- "Trespassers will face adversity befitting a monarch."
- "In the tower of the Old Iron King resides a Child of Dark."
- "With water dry, and path amiss, woeful temptation is dismissed."
It is speculated that the "Child of Dark" may be another shard of Manus.
