How about some new Dark Souls II screenshots? A new batch was released today, focusing on the game's Covenants, an aspect of the multiplayer.
In Dark Souls II, players can be a little more social by creeping into someone else's game, where they have the option to aid or harass the host in a number of ways. For anyone who is familiar with the franchise, this is nothing new; a unique way of interacting with other players not quite done in any other RPG.
Dark Souls II will be out on March 11, 2014, for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. A shame this isn't a next-gen (Current-gen?) game. Can you imagine how gorgeous the world would be with improved visuals? If you need further reason to look forward to it, dig our early preview, in which we confirm that you will die over and over again.
