Game InfoThe unexpected surprise hit and GameSpot's Best of 2009 - Game of the Year Winner Demon’s Souls now has its spiritual successor in Dark Souls. This once-in-a-generation game will take you through an experience so challenging, so punishing and yet so intensely gratifying that it will leave you anguished for wanting more. Set in a rich, dark fantasy world, experience tense dungeon crawling, fearsome enemy encounters and groundbreaking online features for a truly unforgettable gaming experience. Dark Souls breaks down barriers with a seamless world design filled with the most unexpected of surprises. The unerring foundation of challenge and reward will engulf you and offer an unparalleled sense of achievement.
Dark Souls is an upcoming action role-playing game from the developers who brought you Demon’s Souls, FromSoftware. Dark Souls will have many familiar features: A dark fantasy universe, tense dungeon crawling, fearsome enemy encounters and unique online interactions.
Dark Souls is a spiritual successor to Demon’s, not a sequel. Prepare for a new, despair-inducing world, with a vast, fully-explorable horizon and vertically-oriented landforms. Prepare for a new, mysterious story, centered around the King’s Crowns and the original, now dying flame at the center of the world. But most of all, prepare to die.
You will face countless murderous traps, countless darkly grotesque monsters and several gargantuan, supremely powerful demons and dragons. You must learn from death to persist through this unforgiving world. And you aren’t alone. Dark Souls allows the spirits of other players to show up in your world, so you can learn from their deaths and they can learn from yours. New to Dark Souls is Beacon Fire, where you can share the experiences of your adventure with the spirits of other players. Around the Beacon Fire, you may find the only warmth and calm that exists in this dark world. Beware: There is no place in Dark Souls that is truly safe.
With days of game play and an even more punishing difficulty level, Dark Souls will be the most deeply challenging game you play this year. Can you live through a million deaths and earn your legacy?
