Dark Souls 3‘s final expansion is out tomorrow, and I haven’t felt this amped since the launch of the Ashes of Ariandel DLC. Or the release of the actual game. Or every other launch in the Souls series.
We’ve already seen a good chunk of The Ringed City in action thanks to this meaty livestream and two appropriately dramatic trailers, but there’s nothing quite like a hard-hitting launch trailer to get the ashes flowing. Check it out below if you don’t mind MASSIVE SPOILERS.
“Fear not the dark, ashen one,” reads the video’s description. “Journey to the world’s end to search for the Ringed City and encounter new lands, new bosses, new enemies with new armor, magic and items. Experience the epic final chapter of a dark world that could only be created by the mind of Hidetaka Miyazaki. Embrace the Darkness!”
Doesn’t it sound lovely? It sounds lovely.
Last week, a major patch was released for the game in preparation for the arrival of the expansion, bringing with it things like PS4 Pro support, two new PvP maps, multiplayer enhancements, and a ton of significant tweaks.
Dark Souls 3: The Ringed City arrives on consoles and PC tomorrow (28 March), and will set you back R161 on Steam.
