Dark Souls 2 Announced for PC, PS3, Xbox 360 (TRAILER)

The 2012 VGAs saw the premiere of a debut trailer for Dark Souls 2, announcing the upcoming sequel for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

Creator Hidetaka Miyazaki will supervise the game’s development, and it will be directed by From Software’s Tomohiro Shibuya.

Dark Souls 2 will feature a new protagonist and follow a new storyline; multiplayer has been revamped with a “Dark Souls twist” to the server-based mode. In the press release, Shibuya said that the game will be “fresh while not forsaking its roots.”

While no release date was not provided, more details will be revealed in the next issue of EDGE.

Check out the trailer:

As someone who has watched every video of James’ struggle through Dark/Demon Souls, the fact that he will now be forced to forge ahead through yet another Souls game and die hilariously (hopefully shooting way past the 500 mark this time) has filled me with an unreasonable amount of joy. The walkthroughs were my most watched series of anything over the past 5 months. Merry Christmas to me, merry Christmas to us all!

First through that came to my mind when the dragon was about to spew its fire and the armoured guy shirked up.

“Oh God damn it, there goes my last five hours of progress.”

Best news of the year really, although most are worried about it getting “dumbed down”. Which isn’t really a bad thing, I mean, be honest. How did YOU find Kaathe? My guess is – you read one of the wikis, or a guide.

They can make it more accessible by just making things marginally less obtuse. Still love Dark Souls. It’s just not 100% perfect (more like 98.25%)…
