There's been a massive hole in my pain receptors since I finished Dark Souls II, but the upcoming DLC 'Crown of the Sunken King' is incoming and, from these new screenshots, I'm getting a little bit excited.
It's hard to make any real predictions based on a handful of screenshots, but it looks as though the new areas for the DLC will focus on depth and vertical space. That could just be a visual thing, in terms of providing a sense of scale, or it could be a verticality in terms of design. I'm hopeful it'll be a little bit of both. Dark Souls has always done a beautiful job of making it's small universe seem as deep as the ocean. I don't usually tend to invest in DLC for any for any game, but I might have to make an exception for Dark Souls II
