By Ishaan . March 11, 2014 . 1:51pm



If you’ve never been particularly adept at the Souls games, you may find this useful—Namco Bandai have put a Dark Souls II video feature together that teaches players how to try and survive in the game’s world.


The video is divided into sections and covers “specifics from the controls, weapons, items and armour, right through to combat, upgrading, multiplayer and general tips on how not to die so much”.


Dark Souls II is available in North America today for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Europe will get the game on Friday, March 14. Finally, a PC version of the game will be available on April 25th.

    • MrRobbyM

      Vaati has done some things for Bamco relating to Dark Souls recently so it’s not that surprising.

      • Abysswalker90

        I see. I’ve been keeping away from Dark Souls II stuff recently. Helps me deal with the wait, and makes the game all the more bitter while playing.

  • MrRobbyM

  • KyoyaHibari

    Vaati is the best.

  • Just don’t repeat what towelliee does and you’ll be fine.
