Dark Soul 3 is an upcoming action role-playing video game that provides new ways to role-play and increase the viable range of character builds. The game's story will continue the tale of a lord-slaying dark hero and the "Lord of Cinder."
Players can launch two different types of attacks: one that delivers a devastating blow designed to break an enemy's guard and another that quickly closes the distance between the player and their target.
If you didn't enjoy the quality of Dark Souls II and are wondering about the enjoyment of Dark Souls III and the fact that it may be overhyped, worry no longer. Dark Souls III is the true successor to Dark Souls. The third entry in a game series renowned for its outstanding unique storytelling and its sinister difficulty, FromSoftware has brought us again another game worthy of praise. Taking place in the land of Lothric, you will encounter grotesque beasts of the unknown, epic bosses, the most beautiful environments and a lore deeper than any ocean. If you are tired of hand-holding games where the game seems to shove tutorials in your face even to end-game than this is the game for you. Dark Souls is NOT a HARD game. One of the reason that I hold Dark Souls in such high regard is not because of the difficulty but rather the fact that it doesn't treat the player as if they're a child. The game will punish you but know that it doesn't mean the end, rather every death you face is nothing more than a stepping stone to a greater success, a hard earned success is honestly the greatest feeling ever. You will learn new skills and eventually adapt, the game knows you aren't stupid and will treat you like you are; a human, something a lot of games these days are sorely missing. Differences : Again, Dark Souls III feels more like a sequel to Dark Souls I than II ever did. Borrowing things from all their previous games you will see happy changes to the overall game. Fans of Demon Souls will be happy to know that the hub world shares an uncanny resemblance to the Nexus as well as the Maiden. Extremely well designed bosses inspired from the creatures of Bloodborne and its engine as well as Dark Souls II's accessibility to the series.
In terms of gameplay, I think this entry is one of the best in the From Software "souls-like" canon. Lots of weapon and build variety, interesting new enemies, and a handful of great level designs. As a fan of souls lore, though, that side of things is lacking. The story isn't bad but at a certain point you realize that all of these references they are dropping to the other games aren't really building to anything, they're just references. As if to say "hey remember this". It's still a very fun game to play, but if you're expecting something in the vein of Dark Souls or Bloodborne lore-wise I'd advise you to lower your expectations.
Dark Souls III This is the third installment of the souls series which are characterized by high levels of difficulty. Very succesful installment i must say! Game characterize very addicting gameplay that when combined with high difficulty results in this fantastic satisfaction from killing each boss or more difficult opponent which are greatly designed. Another aspect that gives great fun while playing is co-op and pvp, that allows you to fight with other players as well as help them. Another player can invade us at any time that gives us the additional boost in difficulty. Highly recommended.
Honestly, Dark Souls III was the highlight of 2016 for me, I still haven't gotten every achievement but I managed NG++ within the first couple weeks of its release capped at 110 hours... Now with the DLC out, I'm going well and beyond that! I may have spilled a little too much spaghetti on a couple elevators multiple times... Perhaps even busted a controller or two, be that as it may... This game really brought back Dark Souls for me, Dark Souls II really turned me off from the series, and Dark Souls III brought me back, it's just so much more organized in my opinion. Dark Souls III is easily a highly recommended game. The way the difficulty ramps up so quickly, the map is back to being a literal masterpiece, there just isn't anything lacking from Dark Souls III that was in any of the other games in the series, it's nothing but great new additions. P.S. If you love the subtle lore the series has to offer, Dark Souls III is lacking none of it, one of the two secret area bosses will really wow you in that regard, you'll have to put it together for yourself, no spoilers.
Dark Souls 3 is a pretty good, but certainly not great ending to the Souls series. Playing this game I never did got the same great vibe I got from Dark Souls 1 & 2. Some of the bosses on the game or nothing short of disappointing, the questlines to some characters have little payoff (though some are great), and the game leans very heavily on past nostalgia from Dark Souls 1, with improved combat mechanics. Buuut.. Did I hate this game? Oh no. I loved it. It is a Souls game still, true and true. The lore is amazing, and still found through gameplay and not cutscenes. Combat is faster than ever, there are even more amazing boss weapons, and some areas are larger than before. But there are aspects of it that will frustrate you. Pros: -Faster combat, and maneuverability -Some areas are definitely longer... -Still has the good old Souls feel -Lore is given to the interested players through very optional ways -PvP funner than ever -Co-op with friends is easier, with a password that allows you to summon only those with the same password Cons: -Wether the new weapon skill system was neccessary, is subjective. -Some areas are definitely longer... but there are fewer of them and some are very very annoying. -Summoning is sometimes a pain in the ???, as it fails if you summon more than 1 phantom simultaneously. -End bosses are mostly disappointing.. -A lot of unwarranted nostalgia from DS1 holds this game up -Seems a little too easy for some.
