Dark Souls II Concept Art Shows Ghastly Monsters

By Spencer . December 20, 2012 . 10:24pm


FromSoftware released concept art for Dark Souls II and a nightmarish skeleton is one of the creatures players will run into. Other pieces show a character in regal looking armor. A friend, perhaps?


Dark Souls II is in development for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

  • looks good.

    in the left side one from the bottem: isn’t that a grief seed?

    • Bloodios

      Heaven… what if at the end of Dark Souls II, we find out that the entire time, we were just being manipulated by the Incubator? Imagine all the grief, despair, and frustration that follows…

  • Godman

    Are those Necromorphs!? It’d be so awesome if they moved like them, then we’d all be screwed.

    So looking forward to this game

    the chariot looks sexy.
    hell, the last chariot boss i fought was Sengoku Basara’s and Devil May Cry 3’s.
    all chariot bosses are awesome is the conclusion.

    • Ethan_Twain

      There was a chariot boss fight in Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones that was easily the low point in that otherwise pretty excellent game, I’m sorry to report.

      • heartless141

        i do remember a chariot race, then the twin brother later, but i can’t recall a chariot boss :o mind enlighten me?

        • Ethan_Twain

          I was just combining the two as one since you don’t get a break. You do the chariot race with one of the brothers, tackle him off (just by CHANCE in the one spot where his brother was waiting for you) and then need to fight them using whatever health you have left from the chariot sequence. I remember this because I had very little health left after the chariot sequence :(

  • Bloodios

    Spike-guy reminded of Kirk… his distant relative perhaps? Either way, I would definitely love to see Kirk returns in Dark Souls II.

  • Ereek

    Oh my, that environment art is lovely. I’ll no doubt be buying the official artbook when it’s released.

  • Know what’d be a really awesome twist? If that big, bloated guy with a sickle turned out to be a non-hostile NPC.

  • Cloud_ST

    Love the new knight armor, that blueish green suits it perfectly.

  • Follower_of_Pram

    You know what would be amusing? If trusty Patches was in some way in this game as well. It would be neat if he was in all 3. Maybe generations of patches. Heh.

  • MrRobbyM

    That thing with the spider legs on it’s back and coming out it’s….mouth, is stuff of nightmares, man.

  • Abend

    Looks like the abyss is at it again messing with the world again.

  • So excited for this! I am prepared to die over and over again =^_^=

  • Ben Sylvia

    I like the one with the ignitable stomach.

  • Visa Vang

    Me: Oh dear lord, how many times am I gonna die…

  • Devin Lemire

    Is that a fucking Dwarf in the lower right corner? If so, I want one ((^w^)/)
