FromSoftware is out to punish you again...
Dark Souls is back – are you ready for more?

Back in 2009, FromSoftware ripped your gaming soul apart with the launch of Demon’s Souls – an unforgiving third person RPG title with unique online functionality and unrivalled responsiveness. But mainly, it was punishingly difficult – accurately getting across the realities of trying to survive in a sadistic fantasy world.

Dark Souls followed in 2011 – dubbed the spiritual successor to Demon’s Soul as the former property was owned by Sony. It saw the title move out onto new platforms and even greater success, while still managing to retain the alarming difficulty that a certain class of gamer craves.

Well there’s reason to celebrate, Dark Souls II is coming back to consoles and PC! We’ve got no confirmed release date yet but the new game will be helmed by FromSoftware Director Tomohiro Shibuya, supervised by series creator Hidetaka Miyazaki. Dark Souls II will take players to a new world, featuring unique battles with terrifying enemies and bosses as well as a revamped server and multiplayer experience.

Check out the announcement trailer – we really miss this level of CG in our games!


“There are few games that are as rewarding for players as the Dark Souls series, and Dark Souls II will give every player that steps up to take the challenge a feeling of empowerment that they will never forget,” said Olivier Comte, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Distribution at NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe. “The game doesn’t accept compromise, and neither do the brilliant people at FromSoftware who will test their own tenacity as well as that of gamers in delivering us another gaming landmark.”

“This new chapter in the Dark Souls saga presents opportunities for us to drive innovation in gameplay design, develop an entirely new story, and expand the scope of the world in which the player interacts with the game. We have taken these necessary steps with Dark Souls II in order to evolve the overall experience of the Dark Souls series,” says Tomohiro Shibuya, FromSoftware Director on Dark Souls II. “The entire development team is striving to make Dark Souls II an experience that is fresh while not forsaking its roots in presenting players with challenging gameplay. Our goal is to surprise and delight our fans with new experiences and plot twists while enticing new players to join our dark journey.”
