Bandai Namco and FromSoftware return with the next installment in their epic saga. Dark Souls III will take place on the embers of a once proud kingdom. The kingdom lies in ruins with bridges destroyed and statues crumbling apart. Those who are left appear sickly wearing what appear to be turtle shells in order to protect them from the constant swirl of dust.

A woman crowns herself with a jet black tiara in a torn down room. Her crowning awakens a giant monstrosity that burns from within. And wields what appears to be an enormous battle axe. Of note he wears a similar crown to that of the woman.

Dark Souls III promises to continue to deliver unrelenting challenges against terrifying bosses and horrifying enemies. Players will be equipped with a selection of weapons and magic in order to combat these foes and uncover the mystery and secrets of this once proud kingdom.

Dark Souls III is expected to be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in early 2016.
