A couple of days back, more Dark Souls 3 gameplay footage has been shown by From Software. The footage, unfortunately, is set in the beginning area of the game, the Cemetery of Ash, but it still manages to show something new, as it features some Knight class action and the Elite Knight equipment. Footage released in the past few weeks includes Pyromancer and Harald gameplay as well as some Zweihander action.

Last week, Bandai Namco debunked a Dark Souls 3 rumor which has been circulating a few days before. According to this rumor, the PC version of the game was going to be locked at 30 FPS. Thankfully, this isn’t going to be the case, so PC players will be able to enjoy the game at 60 FPS.
