We’ve seen horror movie directors make animated shorts to help promote video games in the past, such as House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects director Rob Zombie’s Assassin’s Creed Unity short.
Now Cabin Fever, Hostel, and The Green Inferno director Eli Roth has directed an animated short for the upcoming Dark Souls III, and you can check it out below.
The latest gameplay trailer for Dark Souls III has been released.
The new trailer is something of a music video, set to a cover of the song “True Colors” performed by Richie Kohan and featuring Faux Fix, while also showing off some previously unseen gameplay footage.
The Souls series of video games developed by From Software are known for a few things, most notable of which being their infuriating, unforgiving, may cause baldness level of difficulty.
Another much less maddening thing the games are known for is their phenomenal opening cinematics, which get you super excited to step up and become the bad ass you were born to be…before you ultimately end up deconstructing your controller via wall a few minutes later. But it makes the sense of accomplishment when you do overcome your greatest adversaries (I’m looking at you, Havel the Rock, you ass—you’re not even a real boss!) all the more satisfying, and that feeling is addictive enough to keep ’em coming back for more and more.
Dark Souls III is set to be released soon, and to help start getting folks pumped up for the game the opening cinematic has been released online (for those who don’t mind seeing it before actually playing the game). You can watch the video below.
The Gamescom convention kicked off in Germany today, and there’s been plenty of exciting video game goodness shared already.
The third entry in developer From Software’s massively popular Dark Souls franchise, simply titled Dark Souls III, was officially announced at E3 2015 a couple of months back. Now the first gameplay preview for the trilogy-maker has been unveiled at Gamescom during the Microsoft presentation today.
While Dark Souls II was released on the current generation of consoles, it was first released on the previous generation, making this the first “next-gen” release for the excited fans of the series. You can see what it looks like below.
Though I’m sure a crazy amount of work goes into them, it feels like From Software makes their Souls games as easily as you or I make breakfast in the morning (which is still pretty difficult, because sleepy). Now another one is officially on the way with the announcement of Dark Souls III.
Yes, franchises like Assassin’s Creed and Call of Duty churn out a new title each and every year, but many of their releases do not score nearly the same praise and respect as From’s games do. Which is why it’s so impressive how quickly they seem to deliver them.
An announcement trailer has been released for Dark Souls III, and can be viewed below.
