[Official] Dark Souls III Information and Discussion Thread

post #1 of 930
Thread Starter 

I was surprised to not see a Dark Souls III thread already, so I figured I'd go ahead and make one.

 Additionally, Bandai Namco has confirmed a release of April 12th for the Americas and Europe!

Not only that, they’ve finally outlined and revealed the availability of the different editions!
- In the US, the $59.99 Day One Edition will include a sleeve, soundtrack, and starter guide (digital or physical isn’t specified, but probably digital)
- Also in the US is the Collector’s Edition, which will retail for $129.99, and includes the Day One Edition material plus an art book, cloth map, and 10″ “Red Knight” statue
- In the UK, certain retailers will carry the Collector’s Edition, which is missing some items from the US CE, but does include a Steelbook case, and iron-on Patches (huehuehue).
- The previously reported Prestige Edition will only be sold through Amazon UK sadly enough, but it DOES include the Red Knight statue PLUS the enormous Lord of Cinder statue. UK players won’t have to choose between two highly expensive versions at least to get both figures.

You can check out the details here, as well as a closer look at the Lord of Cinder statue!

  • Dark Souls II-esque fast travel will return
  • Skill respec will return, but may not work exactly the same as Dark Souls II
  • DS3 will utilize an MP system like Demon’s Souls, instead of spells each having limited casts
  • Magic spells will be designed to be more distinct from one other in order to emphasize build diversity
  • Unlimited invasion items will return
  • New Game+ will feature new enemies, remapped enemy locations, and new gear
  • Hidden walls are found by attacking
  • Weapon durability will be somewhere between Dark Souls 1 and 2
  • Bonfire Ascetics will not return (v_v)

Also, the release date may have been spilled a bit early! One site has listed it for February 2nd.

Yeah but I figured since there's a decent amount of content out now there's no reason not to go ahead and make one.

I for one am happy that we already have a thread for Dark Souls III thumb.gif

I'm really curious to see how the new Battle Arts mechanic will play into the PvP.

Seems like it's going to be kind of like Bloodborne in that you're going to have more variance with weapons. My only worry is that they're going to heavily limit the number of weapons like Bloodborne. I haven't played Bloodborne, but one of the things I loved so much about DS2's PvP was the sheer variety of armor and weapon options. It let you change things up often to keep it interesting, and it also meant you could find a niche. For example, I really enjoyed using the Sanctum Mace and Yorgh's Spear, but I rarely saw other people using them. That meant I could catch people off guard because they weren't familiar with the movesets of the weapons.

I completely agree with you! And from everything I've read and/or heard on the internet, there will be more weapon choices than even in Dark Souls 2.

I felt like I had more weapon choices in Bloodborne than in DS2. Whilst DS2 did have more weapons on paper, BB's different weapons and especially weapon modes made for far more varied gameplay.
