Dark Souls III has been a game that continues to separate itself apart from the rest of the genre. From its twisted landscapes, Lovecraftian styled enemies, unique combat style, and difficulty – Dark Souls III still remains a truly alive title for it sfans. Announced for its upcoming release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam, Ashes of Ariandel will expand the already existing story for the Dark Souls III storyline.
With Ariandel being as hidden as it is, the land has been defiled, darkened, and it’s the players goal to seek out the cause for this. Players will explore a new landscape never before seen where they will find new weapons, armor sets, and even magic to use. Players will also, for the first time, have a rather new take on the games rather popular competitive PvP mode that’s embedded into the title.
“DARK SOULS III: Ashes of Ariandel continues FromSoftware’s track record of providing best-in-class post game downloadable content support,” said Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “With hours of new challenges, new bosses, new mysterious locations to explore, new items to obtain, and new ways to challenge other players online, it’s the perfect time to jump back into one of the best games of 2016.”
Ashes of Ariandel is set to release as the first major DLC for Dark Souls III on October 25th, 2016. For non-Season Pass owners, the DLC will run $14.99 USD while the Season Pass itself runs $24.99 USD for all platforms a second DLC is also slated for an early 2017 release.
