Well, with only about a month to go before it launches, Bandai Namco have sought fit to release a bit of new gameplay footage for the DLC. I mean, I think they did. I haven’t actually finished Dark Souls 3 yet, so there’s no way in hell I’m watching the video before I get my hands on it. Spoilers ahead, you have been weighed, measured, and warned.
Let’s get right to it then. Ashes of Ariandel will be the first DLC for Dark Souls 3, with another one currently in the works. According to the expansion’s announcement trailer, Ashes of Ariandel will take players on a journey through a new, icy environment bursting with harsh new challenges and even harsher enemies, and will add upon the already mysteriously intriguing DS3 storyline.
The DLC’s latest video (which I still refuse to watch so I’m just skimming through the previews in the progress bar) seems to show off the new area and enemies mentioned above, as well as OMG I THINK I JUST SAW A NEW BOSS AT THE END THERE! Damnit. Well, if you’re the type not easily warded off by spoiler warnings, the video is embedded below.
Dark Souls 3: Ashes of Ariandel will be blowing onto PC, XBO, and PS4 on 25 October, and you can pre-order it right here for R161.
