Dark Souls III is the latest addition to a successful series created by From Software and published by Bandai Namco. The folks from the development studio once again proved that they know what they are doing. They come up with a brilliant title that will appeal to all the fans of the action RPG genre.
The Darkness Is Swallowing the World
It’s not that the Dark Souls franchise ever had a complicated plot. In essence, you will once again be saving the world. The darkness is threatening, and you need to stop it from bringing on the apocalypse. The secret of the storyline is worthy of playing is in the fact that this is the final part of the trilogy. If you have played previous sequels, you are familiar with the lore, and I’m sure you want to discover what happens in the end.
But even if you don’t care about the plot, you might appreciate the detailed scenery of the world that has been through a lot. You will be traveling through ruined towns while encountering many different creatures. The developers decided to be creative with the monsters, so the list includes a weird combo of a wolf with a spider’s body and a tiny minion with a massive sword. While we are on the topic, let’s mention that the sound is impressive, too. The songs contribute to the atmosphere as they are dark and chilling. The voiceover is superior, and the actors have done excellent work.
Be Ready to Die…a Lot
If you want to play Dark Souls III, you need to arm yourself with patience. You will die thousands of times by the end of the game. It’s just impossible to deal with all the enemies at some points so it might be a wise move to purchase a reserve controller in case you break the one you are using. However, the fact that combat is challenging doesn’t mean it’s not fun. In fact, the high-paced action will leave you always wanting just another round with your foes.
If you played Bloodborne, you know what to expect from battles in DS3. You have a vast selection of arms to select, while spells also play a vital role. You will earn Souls, the in-game currency, with every successful kill. You can use this money to buy weapons, items, or level up your character. The game does not end once you complete if for the first time. Instead, it offers you to play again at an increased difficulty (yes – that would be insanely hard). The good news is that you will keep your equipment and stats and that makes things somewhat more manageable.
