Check out the Dark Souls III opening cinematic


Prepare to die! Wait, that was the old tagline. *Clears throat* Embrace the darkness! Bandai Namco has released a new cinematic trailer for the upcoming Dark Souls III. It reveals some story information, and shows off some of the bosses and enemies the game will pit you against. Check it out after the break.

If you’re unable to watch it right now, the trailer drops some details and hints regarding the main bosses in the game, the Lords of Cinder. Apparently, the Lords return after a “link of fire is threatened”. Somewhere into this fits the protagonist, an undead being known as an Unkindled. The designs of the Lords show good variety, one being a shambling horror of incomprehensible shape and the other a massive, faceless giant.

Dark Souls III is launching on the 12th of April 2016 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. If you have a lot of disposable income, check out the Collector’s Edition.  And be sure to check out our hands-on impressions from the beta a while back.
