Developer From Software has revealed a handful of new screenshots to tantalise your hardcore tastebuds, but also a new nine-minute gameplay video showing off just how difficult the sequel to Dark Souls actually is (I should know, my screen is constantly filled with "You Died").
Thankfully the person behind this video is a bit more skilled unlike myself, allowing viewers to actually see some of the new content that From are hoping to bring to the sequel. Included is a look at some of the new combat changes, new enemies and new weapons in-game.
In related Dark Souls 2 news, publisher Namco Bandai has revealed that actor and comedian Peter Serafinowicz, known best for his role as "Pete" in Shaun of the Dead, will be offering his voice as a new character in Dark Souls 2. Serafinowicz also revealed his true identity as a hardcore gamer, calling Dark Souls 2 "the most engrossing game I've ever played," and "the best game of all time."
Peter will dub a new character named Mild-mannered Pate. Players will encounter this mysterious man during his journey in search of treasure. He may teach players a few tricks of his own in order to survive during their quest. Will they dare to trust this enigmatic character?Dark Souls 2 will be available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 come March 13th. A PC release is expected sometime shortly after, with From Software hoping "to release the PC version in the same window."
