Previously, Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki promised a Dark Souls 3 DLC after Ashes of Ariandel. The next DLC is scheduled to arrive in early 2017. What?s next after the Ashes of Ariandel DLC?
Previously, Miyazaki revealed that there will be two DLCs for the game. The first DLC was promised this year, which turned out to be the Ashes of Ariandel DLC. Meanwhile, the second DLC is expected to be released in early 2017. Potentially, the next DLC?could be revealed around 2017?s first quarter, mainly January to April.
In the Dark Souls Facebook page, fans were asked what questions they want to remain unanswered in the game. Despite the fans giving silly answers, one of the questions is about a character?s past and identity. Potentially, knowing about the player character?s background may make the Dark Souls 3 lore linear as he?ll have grounded and unique goals rather than a blank slate. Potentially, the next DLC expansion could explore mentioned areas like Carim and Londor.
Most of the Dark Souls lore is left unexplained and encourages players to read between the lines. The unexplained setting of Dark Souls allows it to be extremely enigmatic. However, the Dark Souls game world manages to stay charming due to its excellent gothic horror design through its area architecture and creatures. The next Dark Souls 3 DLC may raise another set of questions rather than answer them as they introduce more content.
More than its dark setting and characters that perfectly invite curiosity, Dark Souls is known for its difficult PvE and PvP gameplay. FromSoftware could once again focus on improving the game?s PvE and PvP system through fixes and new items in the next expansion. For now, no teases and announcements of the Dark Souls 3 DLC have been made. Stay updated with more Dark Souls 3 news on TheBitBag.
