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.
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 questions 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. But.. 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 cut scenes. 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. What can I say about this gorgeous series. I love this game and the problems, frustrations, anxiety states that brings the game with it. Looking forward to whatever FROM SOFTWARE gave us next. After finishing it's hard to won't more! Only a few companies can craft a world so completely enthralling like FROM SOFTWARE. Where do you played every entry, started with Bloodborne or brand new --> This is a game you should absolutely make time for.
DS3 is a masterful achievement in game design. And the fact that a "professional critic" was unable to recognize that is shameful. An 8??!! No. Bar none, No. Also, Im on my 6th character playthrough, and every time I play there is something new I discover. Whether that is an item of some sort, or an element of the gorgeous story I am able to piece together, this game is above and beyond anything else on the market. The whole series is (Demon's Souls & Bloodborne included) They have spoiled me.
Dark Souls III takes it up a notch from Dark Souls I in all directions, talking better graphics, smoothier combat, better PvP, more difficult and numerous bosses, you will not rest and this game will only get harder as you progress. At some point, you'll be required to skip enemies to not lose your health and make your way to the bosses since those regular enemies can kill you in a few fast hits. This RPG is a masterpiece that should be acknowledged for decades in the future. Easily the best experience you'll have playing hard video games.
Though this game doesn't quite capture the awe of the first game, and the somewhat more interesting mechanics of the second, Dark Souls 3 is a fine game. The world is beautiful, the enemies interesting and challenging, and the bosses difficult without being unfair. PvE is as solid as it was in the first two games though is it lacking a few things. The dual wielding from DS2 is sorely missed in this game but the addition of dual weapons somewhat makes up for it. There are fewer bosses in this game that the previous but as they say, quality over quantity. As a fashion souls player the lack of more varied armour designs is a slight letdown but not a huge problem. Though I don't really touch PvP what I have experienced seems fine (though comments from those in the community who avidly play it for PvP wish it were more like DS2). The addition of the PvP arena with the DLC makes for some fun times though the lack of any kind of reward makes it less enticing. Overall this is a great game. Challenging without being impossible, beautiful to look at, with a rich world full of things to find and places to explore. The Dark Souls series is one that everyone who enjoys games should at least try and this game is a fine addition and good send off.
My friend got me this game for my birthday (what a nice guy :3) and I cannot stop playing it! Now, my computer doesnt have the best graphics card (GeForce GT 740). I always have to run the game at low or else my fps will drop to the teens. But even at low, the graphics are AWESOME (I get around 40ish fps that drops to the 20's if its a clustered map and I am looking at all of it from a high point). Not only are the graphics awesome, but the game it self is SO addicting. It feels so great to beat a boss that you were trying to beat for awhile or hearing rumors about how tough he is. The maps in DS3 are all beautifully made and always leave you impressed after you finish the map. As for the enemies, most of them aren't tough, (I say most because some enemies such as the wardens in a certain dungeon are annoying and OP) but if you aren't careful you can get chopped down by the easiest enemies. Although Dark Souls 3 is an amazing game, it isn't for everyone. If you get mad easily or are a "casual" this is NOT the game for you. Dying right before a bonfire can really get people angry. Not only do you drop ALL your souls, but you have to go through the part of the map that you finished AGAIN to get the souls that you dropped when you died. You also lose the dropped souls FOREVER if you die again without picking them up before dying. To get to the point, DS3 is hard and should not be played (or at least without a few phantoms) if you get really angry. Multiplayer is a very interesting part of the game. Other players who are near your level can either put down a white soapstone, red soapstone, or use a cracked/not cracked red eye orb. All the soapstones will appear where the player placed it for other people's worlds. The white soapstone is used for Co-Op. You can use it to play with your friends or play with random people. Most people don't troll in Co-Op because they get certain items if they help you beat the boss. The red soapstone is usually used for duels between other players or fight clubs. Fight clubs are basically organised PvP arenas. The host (summoning player) summons red soapstone phantoms and the red phantoms duel each other while the host keeps summoning more and more red phantoms. The cracked/not cracked red eye orb is used by players who want to invade other players worlds. These players are immune and ignored by the host player's enemies. Their goal is to kill the host. Take note that the host must be embered (by defeating a boss or using the item ember) to be invaded. Embered players have higher health then regular players and are embered until death. The invading player is not embered. DS3 PvP is one of the reasons I still play (the others are co-op and New Game+, which basicly is the same game but with tougher enemies, more souls dropped by enemies, and better gear and is able to be used once you beat the game). It can gets me angry when I lose to people who use cheap builds, but it can be very satisfying when you kill a skilled player. I seemed to have talked about multiplayer enough. As for the plot, it is very confusing for new players. Being confused about the plot does not detract from the experience. Most players will get the goal of the game. The game tells you what must be done many times. Players must kill the 4 Lords Of Cinders and others who stand in your way to complete the game. TL;DR: Dark Souls 3 is a beautiful, addicting game that is a challenge for both new and old players to the series. It should not be played alone or at all by players who can get angry easily or are "casuals".
