If there’s one game which is entirely appropriate for Halloween without necessarily being a flat-out horror game, it’s Dark Souls. Namco Bandai presumably know this, because they’ve just hurled 27 new screenshots at us. 27! Blimey. It’s like Christmas. A really bleak, dark, tense Christmas.
Happily, there’s a fair mix of stuff in here. There are a variety of different environments, a bunch of different weapons and armour sets, and – naturally – a whole load of enemies, including that skeletal chariot thing you can see above. I am totally not getting excited about Dark Souls 2 because, as mentioned on this week’s podcast, every time I’m enthusiastic about something in a news item it turns out to be rubbish. As such, I’m just going to go “Pfft”, although I would highly recommend you get excited. I mean, it’s Dark Souls 2.
Dark Souls 2 is due out on 11 March 2014 on the console devices, with a PC release due shortly after.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
