IGN leaks Dark Souls 3 release window

DS3 IGN FINAL

Last week, I told you about a rumour that Dark Souls 3 would be shown off at E3 this year. “The Know” pushed the rumour further, offering up some information that sounded like it was pulled from some secret studio documentation. Now IGN has gone ahead and confirmed a release window, pushing us out of the rumour phase and into the “as yet officially unconfirmed but we all know it’s happening” period.

That’s right, From Software is following the same pattern as last year. Last year around this time, Project Beast was being leaked prior to E3. Revealed as Bloodborne during E3, we got more information during Gamescome before the product was released early this year. Now we’re getting some hints about Dark Souls 3 with a projected release early next year.

It looks like it’s really coming. I still don’t believe all the information implied by The Know – I don’t believe their timing count for cut scenes considering that cut scenes have never been a core part of Souls games (storytelling occurs in a very different way). Also, the screens they show look a lot more like Dark Souls 1 rather than all new Dark Souls 3 images. Still, we might see some of their information proving to be true.

I think Dark Souls 3 could be leaps and bounds better than Dark Souls 2. From Software could learn from the success of Bloodborne, plus being directed by Miyazaki could equate to a better game. Still, I think people are a bit fatigued by the Dark Souls lore and experience; From Software needs to bring something really new to the franchise. Then again, Bloodborne may have converted a bunch of new players to the From Software experience, ensuring that even more people are excited for Dark Souls 3.

        Bloodborne and Souls are totally different though. Well for me though

          Dark Souls 1 was fantastic, it had more lore and narrative than Bloodborn. The level design was fresh and rewarding at its time. Im on level 160 in Bloodborn and find it just as shallow as shooting a loot cave in Destiny.

          Could anybody explain what the hell is going on in Bloodborn? Something about a Night of the Hunt. That is all I know.

            Aliens wanting to have babies, humans offering babies in search of wanting to become superiors beings. It’s all about babies.

            Who is Ludvig? I suppose the game is cool because its unexplainable. Like jumping into the twilight zone.

            As for Dark Souls 2 πŸ™ you can tell the game was designed around PVP with the solo experience taking back seat.

            The first church hunter, doesn’t have TOO much relevance to the story. Some even speculate the first beast you fight on the bridge IS Ludwig. BB is amazing, I think it has amazing lore, like one speculation stating that some of the blood you take is actually menstrual blood O_O

            DS 2 is just kak.

          I’m talking more about the difficulty. Bloodborne wasn’t a game for me like, ‘OK I’m gonna take a break from studying by playing Bloodborne quickly.’ If Souls is harder, then I have no words.

            Souls in my opinion is way harder than bloodborne. For one the parry isn’t so darn easy in souls as in bloodborne. You fear for your life around every corner because you can get literally once shot killed like it’s nobody business. You don’t have a way to regain life after being hit like in bloodborne and you fatroll like a baws if your too heavy.

          Yes, but mighty difficult. Good game, but I’m not a masochist, and I fear that Souls games are even harder.

            Hopefully not πŸ™ They’ve actually been doing some great work with XV and their transparency has been great. They’re actually changing their ways. We’re getting FF XV, Star Ocean AND a new Dues Ex…Good times.

    I’ve never played or been interested in playing any games of this series. Is the difficulty the only pull of it? Cuz’ thats what it seems.

      Seems so, but it’s not. You’ll hear many opinions about it. I personally think its one of the best worlds and tightly desgined gameplay experiences of the modern era while some will hate it. Best to try it for yourself.

      Nope. Really deep interesting lore, crazy boss fights, tight world and game design.

      It is difficult, but that only enhances the experience. That sense of achievement when you beat a boss, that sense of relief when you find the next bonfire (or get out of Blight Town). THat sense of dread / rush of adrenaline when someone invades your world.

      Simply amazing. [T]/

          Blah I struggled with the 3 Sentinels.. Had to go back and find a better shield. Pure mage was difficult in that game. Must of fought those guys over a 100 times before i succeeded.

      It is difficult, but it’s designed well enough that you can succeed if you learn the map, how the enemies attack and their locations. But mostly it’s difficult because you didn’t dodge the right time or some other mistake.

    Number 2 was just too hard. And not in the “ooh this fight is challenging” kinda hard, but more “is this the UI? What the hell does this mean? Why does it look so ugly?” kinda hard.
