It’s that time of year again, folks. Every “Soulsborne” game is awesome in its own right, but most players would agree that the DLC for these games is the real highlight. Dark Souls introduced the most interesting plotline of the game, along with (in this player’s opinion) two of the Top 3 hardest bosses in that game. Dark Souls II took a game that moved away from its predecessor in a number of (most would say disappointing) ways, and brought it back to its roots in a refreshingly challenging manner. Bloodborne followed suit, adding awesome weapons and bosses like one would expect. As of this morning, we now know that Dark Souls III will be getting a similar treatment. The trailer for the first DLC, Ashes of Ariandel has arrived and brings everything that a From Software DLC trailer should bring.
There is plenty to speculate on from this trailer. We see what looks like The Painted World of Ariamis level from Dark Souls, a boss that seems to be attacking with a Lordvessel, lots of snow-based levels and attacks, and a vaguely-Gravelord Nito-looking monstrosity in there too. I’ll for sure be checking every Soulsborne YouTube channel I follow to see who can make sense of this montage. That being said, look forward to playing the DLC for all platforms on October 25, 2016.
