Posted 1 year ago

Rumors have been circulating for the past couple days that Dark Souls III would be revealed at E3 2015. IGN has obtained a Dark Souls 3 promotional image for E3 narrowing the release window.

The official, yet unreleased, art displays the suggested launch frame of “Early 2016.”

First gameplay details from Dark Souls 3 can be viewed below:

  • Will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One in 2016
  • PC release is “negotiable.”
  • 1-4 players
  • Sacrifice ritual allows you to enter other people’s games
  • Bosses can “heat up,” changing their form
  • Swordfighting arts add special moves that can be equipped and changed

Dark Souls III PC release is “negotiable”

The “negotiable” comment regarding a PC release is rather disappointing, as once again the platform will be probably getting a late release with little or no visual enhancements. It’s a real shame though, as the Dark Souls series has millions of fans on both console and PC. Lets hope that developer from Software does reevaluate and we get a simultaneous release.

We have reported a while back that Bandai Namco and Capcom will have a few surprises at E3 2015, and it seems that Dark Souls III might indeed be one of them. The good news is that Dark Souls and Bloodborne director, Hidetaka Miyazaki is once again leading the team in the development of Dark Souls III.

Given the recent collaboration between Sony and From Software with the hugely successful Bloodborne, it would seem that we could be getting an announcement of Dark Souls III during Sony’s E3 press conference. Although this is in no way certain, and the reveal could very well be during Microsoft’s briefing.
