New Dark Souls Trailer Shows Even More Punishing Difficulty

Video game masochists, steel yourselves for Dark Souls, the closest thing that you're going to get to a Demon's Souls sequel. A game that will come to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this October, according to this brand new trailer.

In addition to nailing down a release date for the spring, this new look at Dark Souls showcases the many ways in which we can die in From Software's next brutally difficult role-playing game. We can be crushed by rolling boulders, stomped upon by giant iron knights, burned alive by dragon breath and sliced to bits by swinging pendulum scythes. Looks fun!

We'll have more new details on Dark Souls very, very soon.


    Want. Demon's Souls is one of the greatest games of this generation IMO, so this one is a day 1 purchase for me.

    Yes. This and Monster Hunter Portable 3rd (localized, of course) are my most awaited games this year.

    I finished Demon's Souls, and am about halfway through the second playthrough - stuck in Castle of Boletaria at the moment, in the section where Yuria is, trying to get Soul Sucker from her so I can start some concerted soul farming, but by Jebus this is getting hard.

    I love it. Dark Souls, punish me. Again.

    Want. Badly.

    Sorry, I need to go and change my pants.

    It looks almost exactly the same as Demon's Souls. Not that that is a bad thing. But you'd hope they do something innovative, somewhere..

    That looks excellent! Plus the armour & weapons looks all realistic, on the human player character at least. Which is a great thing to see!

    Great looking animation system as well, that scene where the main char is walking backward down some stairs, actually looks like he is walking backwards down some stairs!

    Hrm... strange paragraph that one.
