Dark Souls 3 is probably one of the most difficult games to ever come out for consoles and PC. However, it does not stop gamers from enjoying the game. In fact, it seems that for them, the harder it is, the better. Fortunately, From Software just announced the first of two DLCs for Dark Souls 3 – Ashes of Ariandel.
The new expansion promises a variety of new contents including new maps, NPCs, weapons, armors, spells, and most of all, more difficult bosses. Players will find themselves traversing the frozen lands of Ariandel as they uncover the reason behind why it has become such a wasteland. They must try and banish the evil that grips the land from within.
In the usual Dark Souls sense, players will be met with more difficult bosses and new NPCs to supplement the new storyline. Players will discover new spells, weapons and armors as they progress through the game?s difficult missions.
Namco did not give any more details regarding the expansion as they do not want to spoil the story. Instead, they released a teaser for the expansion.
Dark Souls 3 is a grim third-person action role-playing game from From Software and Namco. It was released on April 12, 2016.
