As for crafting adventures, players will find settings and monsters in the pages of the hardback core book. Though Steamforged didn't give many specifics, players will at least be able to explore the kingdom of Lothric, which served as the setting for Dark Souls 3.

Elsewhere in the world of Dark Souls, Bandai Namco recently had to shut down its servers for every entry in the franchise on PC. The move came after an exploit was discovered that would let an attacker run code on someone else's PC, effectively giving them control over it.
