Interestingly, back in June of this year, the fan-made sequel was announced to be released exactly one month before the highly-anticipated Elden Ring. With Elden Ring delayed by one month to February 25th, the Nightfall project has now also been delayed by one month.

For those unaware of this exciting upcoming Dark Souls mod, Nightfall will offer a new story, new characters and bosses, a new world map (built mostly from the existing pieces), and much more. It’s basically a brand new Souls game built using the Dark Souls engine and assets. In addition, the fan-made sequel’s combat will be faster-paced, against a mixture of familiar and unfamiliar foes, with brand new voiced NPCs and side-quests. Nightfall also takes many cues from the design of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask.

Dark Souls Nightfall now releases on January 21, 2022 – one month before FromSoftware’s Elden Ring.
