Bandai Namco has announced the first DLC for Dark Souls III, Ashes of Ariandel, is set to release on October 25 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
In the DLC, players will be tasked with defeating the evil within the frozen land of Ariandel and “uncover the mystery of what has caused the land to become defiled,” Bandai Namco explained.
The gameplay seen in the announcement trailer reveals some of the new features coming to Ariandel. Some of the scenes in the trailer show an uncanny resemblance to the Painted World of Ariamis, a location in the first Dark Souls.
Along with the new environment, Ashes of Ariandel will include new weapons, armor sets, and magic. Also, Bandai Namco said “new features for the game’s wildly popular competitive multiplayer mode,” or PvP will be added.
“With hours of new challenges, new bosses, new mysterious locations to explore, new items to obtain, and new ways to challenge other players online, it’s the perfect time to jump back into one of the best games of 2016,” said Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing for Bandai Namco America.
Ashes of Ariandel is the first of two DLC expansions that will be available for $14.99. The game’s Season Pass will earn you both DLC for $24.99.
