From Software, the game studio seemingly committed to giving gamers brain aneurisms from frustration and stress, have shared 13 new screenshots as well as a few details for the final chapter of their marquee franchise Dark Souls 3.
In Dark Souls 3, players will start the game awoken from the Untended Graves as an “Unkinkled”. Players will then be tested by Iudex Gundyr. If they survive this first test–which almost definitely will take a dozen tries, they will then proceed towards Firelink Shrine, where the Fire Keeper will send them on their quest.
There are other characters located in the Shrine, such as Hawkwood, a fellow Unkindled, a fugitive from Farron’s Undead Legion, and a strange man named Ludleth of Courland, who seems to refer to himself as a Lord of Cinder.
As for the 13 new Dark Souls 3 screenshots, they are exactly what you want to see out of a Dark Souls game. Bleak, drab, steeped in detail and overrun with horrifying monsters that will terrify and infuriate you to no end. But hey, that’s what makes these games so fun, right? Check out the screenshots below.
Dark Souls 3 will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, on April 12 in North America and Europe. It will be the last entry in the series as From Software is looking to move on to other projects.
