It took me awhile to figure out what I was watching when seeing the show live. It was only in the end when it was clearly obvious what I just watched. During this year's Video Game Awards, From Software announces Dark Souls 2 with a cinematic trailer. Check it out below
When the trailer ended, not much info was given after, and the show went on. But thankfully, Gamespot reported additional information on the Dark Souls sequel. For starters, Dark Souls 2 will be coming to PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
It was also revealed that Demon's Souls and Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki will not lead the team working on Dark Souls 2, but will rather serve as a "supervisor" during development.
The game will have a new protagonist with a fresh storyline, and a "revamped" of the Dark Souls server-based multiplayer with a twist.
That's all the information so far. After the trailer was revealed during the show, the trailer was up in Youtube but was quickly taken down after a few minutes of uploading. We will post a working link once a viable one is available.
Too soon for a sequel? Well, it depends on when this game is expected for release. The added content to the first game just came out, as well as the PC version of the game called the "Prepare to Die Edition", so it was quite a shocker to see a sequel announced.
