A new trailer released today features more of the same gritty, dark world we’ve come to expect. If that weren’t enough, a new, 12 minute long gameplay demo — an IGN exclusive narrated by FromSoftware director Yui Tanimura — shows there’s something to offer for players old and new, alongside some fantastic footage from the game in development.
Dark Souls II will feature a new hero, a new storyline, and an unfamiliar world for players to survive in, while delivering the uncompromising challenge and ultimate sense of empowerment that players hunger for. Epic battles with gruesome enemies and blood-thirsty bosses await adventurers as they traverse and conquer a devastated world filled with death and despair. Players will also discover a revamped server based multiplayer experience that will put a distinct Dark Souls II twist on the concept of playing and sharing with others. For those with enough tenacity and sheer force of will, great rewards await.
Alongside the gameplay footage, a short Q&A has also been revealed with new information about the gameplay video and the game’s direction.
