Gamer Developer FROM SOFTWARE has finally revealed gameplay footage of their upcoming action-RPG Dark Souls 2, and it promises to be expansive, intense, and sometimes downright cruel.
The Dark Souls series has gathered a large fanbase with its two previous installments, Demon Souls and Dark Souls. As fans of the series will testify, the games’ appeal lies mainly in its brutally unforgiving difficulty.
In this twelve-minute gameplay video from IGN, you can see the improved graphics and some of the new gameplay elements in Dark Souls 2. Another thing mentioned is that there’s a wide variety of ways to die (yes!). As the co-director Yui Tanimura explains, creating more horrible ways to die will make the player feel all the more satisfied when he finally succeeds, which is great news for fans of the series, as well as masochists who aren’t already fans.
For even more information on the game, you can watch the follow-up interview on IGN. Dark Souls 2 will be released for the PS3, XBox 360, and PC. No release date has been set yet, but fans of hardcore action-RPGs should keep their eyes on this game.
