We recently got the latest look at Dark Souls III with a Tokyo Game Show 2015 trailer, and Bandai Namco announced that the game is headed westward with a release slated for this April for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Here are details from the Bandai Namco press:
Dark Souls III pushes a deeper sense of role-playing than previous iterations of the series with key additions that provide players with a set of tools and in-game options to customize their gameplay experience. Skills, a new addition to the Dark Souls combat mechanics, adds attack modifiers to each weapon type, allowing players an increased tactical advantage in combat. Increase an axe’s attack power with War Cry or break an enemy’s guard with a quick upward swing from Ready Stance.
The choice of if and when players use these added abilities is up to them. Players will also be able to equip their character with a wide variety of armor sets, medieval weaponry, as well as come across powerful sorceries and miracles as they develop their own personal style of play.
Dark Souls III will release in Japan on March 24, 2016.
