These new Dark Souls 3 screens are so hot right now

3 min read


I get all manner of emails delivered to my work inbox while I snooze away the hours during the work cycle of the rest of the world. Most of them deal with erectile dysfunction and the secrets that US president Barack Obama is hiding from the public, but then I also get sent some random gaming media. Take for instance this latest selection of Dark Souls 3 screens, which came with some context as well.

That’s kind of neat! Here’s a selection of new nightmare fuel to gawk at then, along with the quotes from the email, which have been liberally copied and pasted below. No, I’m not being lazy. It’s not even 7AM at the time I’ve started writing this piece, I’ve got no gas and that means no wake-up mug of tea to get me going. Hot damn, I’m living the real Dark Souls right here. Although it’s more like Dank Souls in my case. Click to embiggen:

As they begin the game, players will find themselves revived in the Untended Graves as an “Unkindled” and will have to face the mighty Iudex Gundyr as a test to prove their worth before heading into Firelink Shrine.

In the shrine they will find a Fire Keeper tending to a bonfire who will serve players on their long and arduous journey.  Players will find other characters inhabiting the shrine including Hawkwood, an Unkindled and fugitive from Farron’s Undead Legion, along with a peculiar looking man sitting on one of the thrones in the shrine calling himself Ludleth of Courland and a Lord of Cinder

From Firelink Shrine players will begin a dark and brooding fantasy adventure across the vast and twisted world of Dark Souls III.

Right, I’ve finally sorted a mug of tea, contained in my favourite porcelain chalice. Dark Souls 3 is out April 12 in the west and beyond.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • K1FF J1MB0B (sizzle edition)

    Dude… this game.. THIS GAME!

    • Jan Prins

      No Dude… that game.. THAT GAME!

  • Hammersteyn

    Thanks to the header I’m naming my character Hansel

  • Original Heretic

    April is so so far away!

    • Jan Prins

      Not when you getting married and you have a couple of kilos to lose by then.

      • Original Heretic

        Eesh, yeah, I suppose then it can seem rather daunting.
        And here I am on the other side of the spectrum, thin as a rake, but in a months time, I have to be half naked on a stage in front of hundreds of people.

        • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

          I’m with you on that, if I have to lose anything, it’ll be skeletal mass…

      • Couple? *RUNS. Also congrats 🙂

        • Jan Prins

          Yes. Couple. Better to think in terms of couple than ‘I have 45 kilos to shed.” Too bad my Sims eat better and get more exercise than I do… And thanks!

      • Mossel

        So when’s the bachelors? xD

        • Jan Prins

          Le sigh. None being had I am afraid

          • Mossel

            Whaaat!? Traditions are created, not debated!

          • Jan Prins

            I was told… Hey. You are right. I am assuming I am not allowed one. Have to check.

      • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

        Congrats dude!!

        • Jan Prins


          • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

            I’m doing the first anniversary thing this weekend, I remember being quite stressed about the wedding, the funny thing is that everyone tells you to not panic and not to stress, I don’t want to sound like a cliché, but don’t, even though you might…

  • But but…I just got a new shiny controller for my PC, it’s too soon to throw it against the wall.

  • Umar

    Slowly getting excited for this. Hope there’s a beta…

    • You mean as in a beta game than the second? BOOM!

      • Umar

        LOL Well that too.

  • Cute, they are pretending there is a story.

    • Umar

      Souls has amazing stories. You know not what you speak of.

      • GooseZA


      • Hammersteyn

        Indeed, if you’re into reading…. a lot of reading

        • GooseZA

          Not to mention watching VaatiVidya on Youtube. That dude has some really amazing videos about Souls and Bloodborne.

          • Hammersteyn

            Cool, will check him out

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      It does have a story! Just go read the wiki & all the fan theories! …….oh.

    • Zubayr Bhyat

      Forgive this man, Lords of the Cinder, for he knows not what he talks of. 😉

  • GooseZA

    Can. Not. Wait.

  • HairyEwok

    Firelink Shrine sure changed a lot….

  • Darren Peach

    The one series in the game world that is like a film student creating their first short story just after learning how great ( George Orwell ) was in the history of film.

  • CypherGate

    I dont know hey… looks the same like all the others really lol
