Bandai Namco and From Software have released a new set of Dark Souls III screenshots revealing key locations and characters both new and familiar to the series.
As players begin the game, players will find themselves revived in the Untended Graves as an “Unkindled” and will have to face the mighty Iudex Gundyr as a test to prove their worth before heading into Firelink Shrine. In the shrine, players will find a Fire Keeper tending to a bonfire who will serve players on their long and arduous journey. Players will find other characters inhabiting the shrine including Hawkwood, an Unkindled and fugitive from Farron’s Undead Legion, along with a peculiar looking man sitting on one of the thrones in the shrine calling himself Ludleth of Courland and a Lord of Cinder. From Firelink Shrine, players will begin the “dark and brooding fantasy adventure” that is Dark Souls III.
Dark Souls III will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 12 in North America and Europe.
