If there’s one thing you can look forward to doing a lot of in Dark Souls II, it’s dying. I don’t mean that in a bad way, I’ve invested an inordinate amount of time in the first two games, so I’m very much looking forward to getting my ass handed to me when the game launches next year. The unforgiving difficulty may be a barrier that keeps many gamers from taking this series on, but for me, it’s my favorite thing about it.
I don’t usually enjoy unforgiving video games — which Dark Souls II definitely is — but when I finally get passed a certain boss or tough area, the feeling of accomplishment I get is unmatched by any other game. The world, too, is also a fantastic reason to stay. If you’re brave enough, I recommend checking out the new trailer I have waiting for you after the jump.
Dark Souls II releases on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 11th, 2014.
