It’s been a few months since the release of Dark Souls II, and FromSoftware will release its first part of the upcoming The Lost Crowns DLC trilogy, starting with the Crown of the Sunken King, which releases next week. Famitsu gives us a glimpse of what we’ll see.
Similar to the DLC from Dark Souls, Dark Souls II’s upcoming series of DLC will include entire stages, with the first one starting out at the Black Gulch, the entrance to the new area where you’ll then be able to fight new enemies and acquire new weapons.
The new area is filled with traps, gradually rising pillars you’ll be traveling on, and NPC phantoms. Exactly what awaits just before the dead body of the knight?
Dark Souls II’s Crown of the Sunken King DLC will release on July 22, 2014.
