Trailer

Decided to make a seperate thread for people who aren't watching the VGA's.

Day f*cking 1!

Since that trailer got taken down, here's another link.

Players seeking to share their experience will discover a revamped server-based multiplayer mode that will put a distinct Dark Souls II twist on the concept of playing with others.

This new chapter in the Dark Souls saga presents opportunities for us to drive innovation in gameplay design, develop an entirely new story, and expand the scope of the world in which the player interacts with the game. We have taken these necessary steps with Dark Souls II in order to evolve the overall experience of the Dark Souls series. 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.Tomohiro Shibuya

Dark Souls was easily my favorite game of 2011. Just jumped up to number one on my most anticipated games.

Hmm, I figured they'd just change the first word in the title. Makes since though, they only changed it to Dark cuz Sony owns Demon Souls.

Easily one of the best announcements of VGA. And the CGI looked amazing, something to you wouldn't have expected FS to pull off due to their history with graphics.

I can't wait for this.

Hopefully they'll improve upon everything. I'd also like to see it to be open world with Demon's Souls level areas filling the map.

Not necessarily. The core gameplay was the same but the structure of the world was completely different, more in the style of a 3d metroidvania adventure title, as opposed to straight dungeon crawler.

Not really. Game added some new stuff like Covenants, and the structural difference was more in line with say a Metroid/Castlevania than the structure of Demon's Souls. Similar base, but there was enough changes/additions to make it better or up to snuff depending on what camp you fall into(I felt it didn't carry nearly the same initial magic that Demon's Souls had). Plus it was the 2nd game. If fatigue was a slight issue in the 2nd game, it'll be a major issue come the third time. At least that's how I am. So I hope they mix it up a lot more this time.

You don't need to play Demon's Souls to play Dark Souls. Dark Souls is a spiritual successor to Demon's Souls, not a sequel; they exist in different universes.

You should only play Demon's Souls though since it's the GOAT while Dark Souls is crap.

I just want to finish it up before starting Dark Souls.

Looked more like a trailer for a new Dragon Age game to me.

#47 Posted by jdc6305 (3986 posts) -

I just finished dark souls two week ago. I've had the game since launch and put 160 hours into it. One of the best gaming experiances this generation. I'm foaming at the mouth for a sequil. I had no idea they'd announce a sequil this soon and this late in the generation. I thought I was gonna have to wait till next gen.

If this isn't for new systems...well, I won't be surprised but I'll be disappointed.
