Get a hard-mode with this 12 minutes of Dark Souls 2 gameplay footage

48 second read


Dark Souls wasn’t just a hard game. It was a ‘ard game that was more punishing than Geoff’s sleeping habits. Still, masochism prevailed and the game did damn well for publisher Namco Bandai. Success also equals sequel so here’s 12 minutes of gameplay from Dark Souls 2.

Well, looks like some of you are going to earn those blisters on your thumbs, according to those IGN videos. Why, back in my day, we had to play through Gunstar Heroes and Alien Soldier when we wanted hard boss games and rabble rabble rabble damn kids.

In addition to that trailer, here’s a slew of new leaked screenshots, courtesy of AGB. Dark Souls 2 isn’t expected to be out anytime soon, or even this year, but it will make its way onto Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC when it does finally arrive.

    I loved the hell out of the first one, even though it kicked my arse in. I’m not sure I’m ready for another bout yet though, to be honest.

    Hope these greedy IGN bastards upload the video to Youtube already…

    600+ hours invested in DkS… Even if I have my doubts about this game, bring it on.

    Got distracted from Dark Souls when Borderlands 2 came out. I want to get back into it, but every time I think of firing it up I realise that I don’t remember where I was, what I was doing or how to fight. Noooooooooooooooo!!!!

    Dark souls was one of the best games released this gen imho. Man the lore..oh how beautifully the lore was crafted and the community it built.gosh.brilliance no game has given me more of a rush than this. The moment you kill smough and ornstein you feel like Odin! And then when you have to kill poor Sif…I am beyond sceptical for the sequel…dark souls is one of the few games I never wana see tainted by the injection of accessibility .whether in story or game play……lemme go run around in ash lake to calm myself
