This Is The Opening Cinematic For Dark Souls III

It's hard to believe that a third Dark Souls game is so close. Just over two months away!

Today Namco Bandai released the opening cinematic. Fans of the series know the score: it's not really spoilery, and there's no gameplay. These opening cinematics basically give you a quick lore intro into the universe you're about to inhabit. This one is pretty great.

I seriously can't wait for this game.


    I never got into DeS/DkS much but I loved the hell out of Bloodborne. Definitely going to pick this up.

    I finally finished Dark Souls II: Scholar of First Sin's main game on Sunday, and I'm tackling the DLC right now. 9 more bosses and then I'll be good and ready for Dark Souls 3. This cinematic just shows the sort of transition we see in locations and bosses from Lordran, Drangleic and now Lothreic.

    I'm keen to see what will happen lorewise. It seems like we'll be taking on 4 new great souls bosses. They're bringing back giants, and the famed faraam's armour set from DS2 seems to have breathed new life through the undead legion: the abysswatchers.

    I feel like we won't be continuing the age of fire no more, that line about ash seeking embers makes me feel like this is it for fire.

    Get hyped!

    Personally i'll be waiting until the eventual DLC and Steam sale =)

    We are born of the blood.
    Made men by the blood.
    Undone by the blood.

    Now replace blood with fire.
    That's Dark Souls 3 and I couldn't be happier. :D

    That first Lord of Cinder you see named, is literally a hot mess
