Dark Souls 2 Trailer: Misery Loves Company
What’s it like to be cursed to relive every mistake you’ve ever made time and time again until you can succeed? While Bill Murray might have a few ideas, we won’t find out until Dark Souls 2 arrives this March.
This latest trailer for the upcoming sequel to one of the most brutal games ever, let alone this current console generation, features a whole host of vile creatures and creations out to ensure you die as many grisly deaths as possible. We also get a bit of backstory on the world and character in Dark Souls 2. Apparently, you’ll be playing as a man cursed for eternity. Why? That’s something we might not find out until we explore the perilous dungeons and caverns of Dark Souls 2.
Both Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls were absolutely punishing in their difficulty, often breaking the will of the player just a few hours into the adventure. Those that stuck with the games eventually found one of the most engaging and empowering action RPGs to grace a console. We can only hope Dark Souls 2 continues that trend when it arrives on March 11 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
