Open The Door To A New Dark Souls II Trailer

By Spencer . January 15, 2014 . 12:36am

From Software posted a new video of Dark Souls II that shows Draglake and some of the bosses that inhabit the kingdom’s ruins. You play as one of the Cursed in Dark Souls II and when you die in this game you turn to the undead. Being undead has penalties in Dark Souls II like capping your HP gauge and changing your character’s appearance.


Dark Souls II comes out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 11 in North America. The PC version is scheduled for release after the console launch.

    I’m prepared to die again.

    These lines of games just do an amazing job of sucking you in and never letting go. It’s like a game that inspires players to do better through high difficulty, the subsequent payoff of overcoming a tough battle/stage and I know how the cycle goes from all the time playing hack and slash action titles (though this is more of an RPG at its core). It should be a great time watching other players struggle through it or make a mockery of it with sheer player mastery. I can’t be happier for the fans. I am only staying away because I know the addiction kicks in with these games.

    • Abysswalker90

      That’s too bad. Dark Souls is one of those games that stays with you for a while.

      I was still playing the first game two years after it’s release, and only stopped because I don’t want to be burnt out before the sequel is out. I’d highly recommend playing it if you can.

      • Shippoyasha

        I may reconsider and capitulate on a purchase. Never day never. Heh

    • MrRobbyM

      Addiction and gaming go hand-in-hand. I love just about everything the Souls games have to offer but what keeps me going is the lore. Their stories really are something to be appreciated.

    Quick note for you guys, its not Draglake, its actually Drangleic, it was refrenced in the beta a few times.

    Hype x 100

    So, Dranglake, or w/e it’s called is basically Anor Londo 2.0?

  • grevlinghore

    Drangleic. It really ain´t that hard.

  • DanielGearSolid

    Oh my gawd

  • Kornelious

    I am prepared….to die!

  • Kuzon

    Open the doo..? *Dies*

  • fairysun

    Oh well, time to re-read the tips again …

    • andref

      Though the tips are good, the list doesn’t work entirely for dark souls II especially when they added agility that effects movement speed for blocking and dodging. Now you can be invaded as hollow and can summon while hollow or some articles have said

  • Dagobert

    I need to start playing Dark Souls again. I started it and then stopped it to play Nier. Hell I need to beat Demon’s Souls as well. By the way, is it just me or does Demon’s Souls seem harder than Dark Souls? In Dark Souls I was able to beat the first boss pretty easily, and in Demon’s Souls just trying to get to the first boss was a pain in the ass.

    Am I just MLG status or something?

    • MrRobbyM

      If you ask me, Demon’s Souls bosses are much harder than Dark Souls’. I can start up a new game on Dark Souls and pretty much breeze through it alone with some patience. On the other hand, I’ve replayed Demon’s Souls quite a few times and no matter how much I know the game inside out, most of the bosses always give me trouble.

      Not to say Dark Souls is easy. I’ve died multiple times. But once you figure out the strategy, killing bosses isn’t that hard. With some patience, of course.

      • Abysswalker90

        Really? That’s strange, I can pretty much go through Demon’s Souls in about 2-3 hours without pushing it. Heck, last time I played it, I only died 3 times unintentionally. The bosses are probably the easiest part of the game for me, really. I don’t have any bit of trouble with any single one of them. Dark Souls though, although not so hard now, it still gives me troubles in some areas, depending on the build I’m playing as.

        • andref

          Demon Souls bosses tend to have a good number of exploitable weaknesses, the only reason most bosses would give you trouble is if one went straight melee only

        • MrRobbyM

          It’s probably different play styles. I tend to try to stay melee-based which I think is harder in Demon’s Souls.

          • Dagobert

            That’s what I was in Demon’s Souls. I made a melee character.

      • Cazar

        I’d say it’s the opposite. Demon’s Souls had more challenging levels but Dark Souls had more challenging bosses. As andref pointed out, many of the bosses in Demon’s Souls are exploitable. But even without said exploits the only boss in Demon’s Souls I can really recall being very challenging were the maneaters. And quite a few of them were just ridiculously easy, like Phalanx, Fool’s Idol, Adjudicator, Old Hero, Dirty Colossus and Leechmonger all went down on my first attempt on a blind playthough. Dark Soul’s bosses felt more balanced overall.

    • DanielGearSolid

      Overall I liked Demon’s Soul’s better, the bosses were more memorable for me.

  • My wings will burn in anguish, yet I shall spread them again and again.

  • whatinthewolrd

    Its so BS that SE and NB would release two JRPGs, which fans overlap, within the same week. Like, I want to play both FFX HD and Dark Souls II at the same time but I only like dedicating my time to one at a time… first world problems.
