I hope you’ve adequately prepared yourself, because our patience is about to pay off. Dark Souls II is almost here, and while I’m sure it’s going to crush my will and curb-stomp my hopes and dreams, I can’t wait to get my hands on it. Like its predecessor, this game will introduce us to its dark fantasy world through a fantastic opening cinematic that’s equal parts creepy and beautiful. Read on to watch the first part of it.
Dark Souls II is slated to release on PS3 and Xbox 360 on March 11, and PC on April 25.
