The screenshots showcased a new boss named the Iudex Gundyr (pictured above). This enemy wields a long spear-like weapon, and is shown with a dark mass exploding from its form in combat. Players will encounter this boss upon being revived in the Untended Graves as an "Unkindled".

The images also reveal the Firelink Shrine, where a Fire Keeper resides and serves players "on their long and arduous journey." The location serves as a starting area for new players in the game.

Dark Souls is scheduled to launch on April 12 outside of Japan for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam). For those planning to pick up the game on PC, make sure to check the system requirements outlined here.
