A Gruesome Dark Souls III Trailer Directed By Eli Roth

Wow, I didn't see this coming.

An animated Dark Souls III trailer. Directed by Eli Roth. It's weird, it's gruesome. It's pretty goddamn cool.

It's called The Witches and seems like some kind of origin story. It actually doesn't feel very 'soulsy', but I'm okay with that.

There's also a behind-the-scenes video.

Video game marketing is pretty predictable these days — especially when it comes to established game series like Dark Souls. LAUNCH TRAILER. LIVE ACTION TRAILER.

It's cool to be surprised by this stuff for once.


    I went a bit off this bloke when he made his last movie into a 'kill the do-gooders' screed.

    It was always going to happen, the more Souls games we get, the more elaborate and 'off-brand' the hype campaigns are going to be. Like I need a Dark Souls comic......ok maybe.

    That's...actually kind of cool. Definitely did not expect that!

    Roth and Director shouldn't be in the same sentence.
