The sequel to the 2011 hardcore action RPG arrives and it brings more brutally challenging monsters and more intense gameplay in Dark Souls II.

Unique old-school action RPGs are no longer a thing of the past, so prepare to embark on a grueling journey once again and do your best to overcome the various nerve wrenching challenges that await for you in Dark Souls II.

This hardcore franchise is back with another obscure title that promises interesting gameplay innovations that impact both the single player and the multiplayer aspects of the game. FROM SOFTWARE is back at it again, so prepare to engage in combat with enemies that will be much more powerful than you in the beginning. The hazardous environments won't be of any help, so prepare to die a lot before even figuring out what you can kill and what is too powerful for you at the moment. Dark Souls II is powered by a brand new engine that improves the graphics, sound, and FX immensely to immerse you in a dark and unforgiving world more than ever. There are many monsters and bosses that will come as nightmares challenges, but with enough patience, skill, and death, they can be conquered. This is a video game in which you have to die a lot in order to learn about your opponents and the environment that you're in. There are even more customization options in the sequel which allow you to specialize your character and pick your own play style which suits you the most. The updated multiplayer system allows you to interact with other players more than before, both in a co-operative and in competitive play.

Key Features

  • Go Beyond Death: dare yourself to engage against intense gameplay in a vast world powered by an all new engine that leaps graphics, sound & FX forward like never before
  • A labyrinth of monsters & bosses: immerse yourself into mind-bending environments filled with new twisted monsters and deadly bosses that could only come from the imagination of FROM SOFTWARE
  • Sensory assault: a wide range of threats will prey on human senses & phobias - auditory hallucinations, vertigo, acrophobia, etc
  • Deeper and darker: more intricate customization options provide weapons and armor tailoring to player style
  • Evolved multiplayer: updated multiplayer system enables improved online interaction to bring forward cooperative & competitive play
  • Refined gameplay: DARK SOULS™ II features fluid motion-capture animations, an upgraded combat system, a vastly expanded suite of characters, deeper customization options, new weapons, armor abilities, and a balanced player progression system

It's somehow 10 years since the release of Dark Souls - perhaps the most significant release of the last decade, in fact, given the huge impact From Software's meticulously designed adventure has had. To celebrate we're returning to one of our favourite pieces of writing about the game, from none other than Souls connoisseur Rich Stanton. I love the Great Grey Wolf Sif, and have fought alongside her. I have killed her five times across PC and Xbox 360, and the last was the one that mattered. Wit...

Spoiler warnings for Mass Effect 2. I'm not sure why I liked Kelly Chambers so much. There's definitely more exciting characters in Mass Effect 2. She was just cool is all. They seemed so good together, her and my Shepherd, two straight-talking women on a ship full of neverending melodrama, quipping back and forth along the bridge. But I was trapped in a loveless relationship with the odiously boring Kaidan Alenko. So Kelly remained elusive: the steadfast second in command, a constant source o...

It's not until you see someone decide to forgo something like talking to people that you realise how much you rely on it. One player decided to beat Dark Souls 2 while staying silent in-game, waiving levelling up, shopping, upgrades, repairs, or Estus Flasks as they went. Content creator Ymfah's latest video features some impressive boss fights that offer little leeway for them to get hit, though it's the goofs I'm keener on. Sometimes starting a boss fight without talking to them requires you t...

Beating the final boss of a Dark Souls game can be an overwhelming experience. You reflect on your journey, the countless hours and failed attempts that led you to this moment, and a wave of emotion rolls over you. The Twitch channel of Eric “McRaptor” Harper was host to a litany of these moments during the recent “Souls-4-Souls” (SFS) charity tournament that ran in late April. When you think of competitive gaming tournaments, Dark Souls probably doesn’t spring to...

Five of the Best is a weekly series about the small details we rush past when we're playing but which shape a game in our memory for years to come. Details like the way a character jumps or the title screen you load into, or the potions you use and maps you refer back to. We've talked about so many in our Five of the Best series so far. But there are always more. Five of the Best works like this. Various Eurogamer writers will share their memories in the article and then you - probably outraged ...
