The Dark Souls 3 gameplay trailer at Gamescom was exciting and frightening. This is all thanks to the new settings and enemies. The game looks even more epic then the previous Dark Souls games. The fans of the franchise will be ecstatic for this game.
The new title is published by Bandai Namco, and developed by From Software. The game is being directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, who brought us Demons Souls, Dark Souls, and Bloodborne. The third game will be released in early 2016. This game was inspired by some elements of Bloodborne.
The combat looks better than the previous titles. In the new gameplay video’s description, Bandai Namco’s states,
Players will be immersed into a world of epic atmosphere and darkness through faster gameplay and amplified combat intensity. New to the series are the Battle Arts attacks. You’ll be able to deliver powerful attacks that will break through enemy defenses. Each weapon will have its own unique Battle Arts.
One of the weapons allow for multiple wide swings that attack many enemies. Switching between weapons is done quickly, and will be useful in numerous situations. Unfortunately, for the player the enemies look more deadly, and dangerous than before.
The regular enemies in the Dark Souls 3 look interesting, new, and familiar. The bosses, on the other hand, look quite terrifying. When a giant skull head slowly sticks out from the shadows, that would be my cue to run.
All the locations revealed in the gameplay trailer looks unique and awesome. Some of the revealed locations are dungeons, ruins, keep, and more. They can be viewed in the youtube video below.
