It features Heide's Tower of Flame, perhaps the prettiest location in Dark Souls II, and it's all captured in 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second.
And one of the most interesting parts of this demo? The location of the Heide Knights. In Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, the location of the enemies has changed, meaning that different enemies will be placed in different locations throughout the game.
During my preview of the game, I noticed that the first Heide Knight most players come across -- underneath the tree in the Forest of the Fallen Giants -- was no longer there. There are two at the start of this Heide's Tower of Flame section, so that might explain where they've gone.
Also -- there's a new dragon in this section. It looks like Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin will have a few surprised up its sleeve, which is a bit of a relief for me. I'm planning to play through the game again and it's good to hear that I won't be able to play on auto-pilot.
