    Edit: The source was incorrect on what they stated. However, you may be able to fight alongside Artorias before you fight him.

    On another preview of the PC port I read here (in french), here's a translation of a part I found interesting:
    The new content of this Prepare to Die Edition gave additional work to the studio, whose idea is to make the player travel in past and thicken the fragmented background of Dark Souls. "It will be possible to carry your character to the time of Artorias, a renowned knight whom we hear a lot of but we never meet in the original game" explains Miyazaki. "We will be able to meet this mythical character and better understand his story as well as the story of three other legendary knights: Hawkeye Gough, Ciaran and Ornstein." In order not to foolishly recycle the places already present on consoles new areas - three for now, some ruins and a tomb - filled with enemies, bosses and NPCs also new have been modeled. Sadly the short presentation of the PC version still Work in progress staid confined in Firelink Shrine and showed less than the trailer did. We simply had a preview of Artorias' equipment (a long sword with a whirling attack, two demonic curved swords and a gloomy armor/helmet set) as well as the look of an NPC whose named was kept secret, wearing a long coat, a Venetian inspired mask, a giant fork and a crossbow.

    They don't mention being able to play as Artorias.
    The part I find most interesting maybe is this new unnamed NPC which seems to be the one we can see in the collector edition's artbook. They also said online play won't be possible between PC and 360 despite the use of Game for windows live in order not to delay the release.

    Near bottom of the link:

    Update:
    Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition won’t let people play as Sir Knight Artorias. Players will fight him in the PC version to stop the spreading darkness. We apologize for the error.

    I would guess that Hawykeye is the own with the somewhat lesser version of the Dragonbow from the picture I saw... odd. He shows flesh unlike artorias and leo. The woman would be interesting to see what she looks like, the Blade Lord.

    What I am most interested about is the black dragon and the tombs. The tombs is where the pyromancer enters... who they usually tie towards gravelords. The dragon seems docile.

    Artorias I would say would be interesting. It is based on the past. Perhaps I can see what finally happens to him.

    I don't think we actually have any real frames of gough yet, and the archer was more someone just shooting at the black dragon.

    Finally, a proper dragon.

    Thank GOD you can't play as him. Isn't his armor enough already? Come on! I have his sword since I first met Sif! I felt so good because almost no one else was using it! Imagine EVERYONE invading and farming with Artorias gear, it would be Ridiculous! Throw the great knight story to trash

    I'm glad you don't play as him, that would just be...odd for this series. Look at it this way though, you'll still be able to get his sweet armor and all and can cosplay him if you're into that kind of thing 8)
