Recently, Director Hidetaka Miyazaki revealed details about the upcoming Dark Souls 3 DLC in an interview. While Miyazaki revealed only a few details about the upcoming content, it?s been a long while since a major info surfaced on the upcoming DLC. This small bit of info may keep fans company until the DLC?s release in Fall this year.
In Kotaku?s interview, Miyazaki confirmed that the first DLC will be arriving this Fall, while the second DLC is scheduled in ?early 2017.? While the release dates is old news to nosy fans, Miyazaki revealed that the content of the upcoming DLC will be ?different? from the Dark Souls 3 design and will be more similar to its ?previous titles.? The extent of this new content extends to the DLC?s ?area, enemies, gear and story.? The DLC?s story is said to offer a ?new location? and have a ?different feel from Dark Souls 3.?
The first Dark Souls 3 DLC may take the ?vertical map design? of the first Dark Souls entry, which may excite fans. Additionally, the disconnect of the Dark Souls DLCs throughout the franchise can also mean that a unique experience is assured in the upcoming DLC, if it follows the idea of the Dark Souls 2 expansion. Additionally, the upcoming DLC can take ideas from Bloodborne and Demon Souls as they?re technically earlier Souls games directed by Miyazaki.
For now, fans should re-explore Dark Souls 3 and try to find out in which existing area FromSoftware would insert the entrance to the upcoming DLC map. Alternatively, they could just use the Bonfire Fast Travel system to the DLC map and have a less dynamic entry in the DLC and just focus on its content.
However, hold your wallet if you?re planning to buy the game?s Season Pass for the Dark Souls 3 DLC as Miyazaki hasn?t revealed specifics about the game?s content. Let?s wait for a few more months as the summer season isn?t over yet, and they might announce more details that?ll enlighten us more about the upcoming expansion.
