IGN has revealed an exclusive 12 minute gameplay demo for the upcoming action RPG title Dark Souls 2, marking the first in-game footage to surface since Dark Souls 2 was announced late last year (thanks Paveway). The video features direct commentary by director of FromSoftware Yui Tanimura as they explore just what exactly Dark Souls 2 has to offer for both old and new players.
Dark Souls II will feature a new hero, a new storyline, and an unfamiliar world for players to survive in, while delivering the uncompromising challenge and ultimate sense of empowerment that players hunger for. Epic battles with gruesome enemies and blood-thirsty bosses await adventurers as they traverse and conquer a devastated world filled with death and despair. Players will also discover a revamped server based multiplayer experience that will put a distinct Dark Souls II twist on the concept of playing and sharing with others. For those with enough tenacity and sheer force of will, great rewards await.
Alongside the IGN gameplay reveal, a short Q&A has also aired revealing various in-depth responses to both the gameplay video plus a look at just where the new title is hoping to take players.
A new trailer has also surfaced showing off the very gritty world on offer. Check out both below as well as a handful of new screenshots that will let you bask in the glory of death.
