When From Software's Dark Souls II lands on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, it promises to have a "more understandable" challenge than its predecessors, Demon's Souls and Dark Souls. That remains to be seen, but if the recently revealed concept art is anything to go on, we still have a rocky road of trials ahead of us in the sequel.
Dark Souls II will feature a new hero and a new storyline set in the same world. When the game was first announced, FromSoftware director Tomohiro Shibuya said, “The entire development team is striving to make Dark Souls II an experience that is fresh while not forsaking its roots in presenting players with challenging gameplay. Our goal is to surprise and delight our fans with new experiences and plot twists while enticing new players to join our dark journey.”
There's currently no solid release date for Dark Souls II, but we'll keep you posted.
