dark souls 2

Dark Souls 2 is now in the limelight with 12 minutes of gameplay footage from IGN. The second game will not be directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, which was responsible for the past two games. Miyazaki will act as a director for Dark Souls 2 while Tomohiro Shibuya and Yui Tanimura will take over as the director. Furthermore, Darks Souls 2 will have a separate story from Dark Souls 1 and no direct connection between the two games will be made. Fortunately, there will be some dedicated multiplayer server this time around. Currently the game is set to release on the Xbox 30, PS3, and PC.

As you can see in the video above, Dark souls 2 will also feature improved graphics as well as some new gameplay elements. The player can carry a torch with him to light up the room, but at the expense of their shield. Also, certain stones be placed in objects to change or illuminate a room. Of course towards the end of the video the director states that they will be many variations in terms of how you die, but this will lead to a sense of satisfaction every time you overcome an obstacle.
