Dark Souls 3 is an upcoming action-adventure video game developed by FromSoftware and released by Bandai Namco Entertainment for Nintendo Wii, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows at the end of March of this year. It’s the third installment in the Souls series, following the excellent Dark Souls II. If you like the games then you’ll love Dark Souls 3 because it’s very different than the other games in the Souls series. Unlike Dark Souls II, it’s set in the world of New Zealand. You can actually fly and walk on the ground. Some areas have shortcuts, others require that you do a lot of trekking through the terrain.
In terms of story, there isn’t much to tell. The tale is told through gameplay. And if that wasn’t enough, the game can be quite lengthy (certainly by the time you’ve finished the main storyline), and there are about 60 levels in all. So it really depends on your personal preference as to how long the game should be. But that shouldn’t matter much, because the overall experience is fantastic.
Dark Souls 3 features a new game mechanic called Dark Orb. This is basically a stamina type stat that you will build up by using items and fighting enemies. As your Dark Orbs increase, you’ll find that your entire health bar fills up, until you’re ready to attack. This is good, because it makes the game more dynamic. You’ll be fighting more difficult bosses, which require a whole lot more thinking and taking calculated risks, than usual.
There are many new features too. For example, Dark Souls 3 features a fully functioning PvP game mode. You can fight with any character you like, against the player-vs-player competition. The Dark Lord bosses also return, and players will need to work their way through all of them to claim the throne.
Dark Souls 3 has all of the classic souls features too. When you die in this game, you’ll go to a soul keeper, who will turn you back into an undead, and you’ll have to fight your way through the levels again. The game also features a new soul called the Grey Man, who can help you through your adventures. You can even get your personality added into the game for an extra bit of character development.
Dark Souls 3 is clearly aimed at a much older audience, who perhaps don’t play computer games as frequently as the latest generation. But this doesn’t mean that this game is bad. It’s certainly very different from the complex, often puzzle-based world of modern MMORPGs. The enemies and situations are perhaps a step down on that scale. But then, you’ve played these types of games before, so it’s nothing new.

That said, the game is still very engrossing, despite its somewhat simplified nature. The pace is slow and steady, with little in the way of combat. You’ll still see plenty of dark magic, traps, exploration, and fighting. There’s also some good old fashion horror, with creatures straight out of a horror movie, and some very memorable boss battles.
If you’re looking for a challenging, intriguing, and genuinely unique gaming experience, then Dark Souls 3 is definitely worth a look. Dark Souls 3 has a lot to offer the fans of the Souls games, but it also has enough fresh ideas to attract those who don’t play them so often. So, if you’ve never played the souls series, or are just looking for a good new PC game, then you owe it to yourself to check out the new version of Dark Souls 3. You might just find something to love.
