The sequel to From Software’s groundbreaking Dark Souls has just released a new video teaser, titled “Forging a Hero.” As expected, it really is just a teaser. You won’t see any actual gameplay footage. It looks more like a teaser for a Hollywood film, featuring an armor-clad individual forging a blade of some sort. You can check out the video below:
Dark Souls is famous for being punishingly difficult – at least by modern game standards – as it does very little in the way of handholding, and pits players against insanely strong boss monsters that require rote memorization and maybe a little bit of grinding to beat. Dark Souls II aims to replicate the same dependence on challenging gameplay, with a few new bells and whistles.
Dark Souls II will be hitting the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC next March.
