With Dark Souls 3 looking at an early 2016 release it looks like we may have a few hints on just when it could be. Listed on an Italian game retailer site, they may have outed the date by mistake.The date revealed on the store is February 2, 2016. While this is not a 100% confirmation of the date, things get even more interesting with an image showing games that are available around the Chinese New Year, which is February 8, 2016. As you can see in the image, Dark Souls 3 is visible in the revealed games.Looking at the image, something that may also lay doubt on this new rumour though is the inclusion of The Division. With a release date for Ubisoft’s game set for March this would lead to the argument that this image isn’t saying these games will be available to play, but that some featured could be coming soon. So read into that what you will.It will be interesting why a date like February 2 was chosen if this is a mistake. Could it be a date that is being aimed at? … [Read more...] about Has the Dark Souls 3 Release Date Been Revealed?

Okay so the developers of Dark Souls 3 recently confirmed that they will be releasing the game in Japan on March 24, 2015. They also promised that they will share more on the western release some time later.It appears, however, that Amazon might have some ideas of their own since the retailer has listed the game on their website’s Italian version with a release date.Apparently, they are stating that Dark Souls 3 is going to be released on March 31, 2015 and since the release dates for the European countries are mostly the same, it is a suggestion that the game might come out on that day all over Europe.Of course Amazon Italy is not the official source of such news, but it will not be the first time if we find out at a later date that the online retailer has actually leaked a legitimate release date.That being said, From Software is all set to launch the game in Japan on March 24, 2016. Also, a network test for the game is also going to be held in Japan next month starting no … [Read more...] about Amazon Italy Says Dark Souls 3 Release Date is March 31

Dark Souls 3 has been dated for North America and Europe and will launch in April 2016, just a month later than it's Japanese counterpart. When it lands, players will be able to discover a very different approach to magic casting, which is broadly split into two methods: spells and miracles. Want more Dark Souls? Here are the best Dark Souls PC mods. Spells are offensive magics, while miracles are broadly defensive and buffs. Spells include the likes of Soul Arrow (a magic missile), Soul Dart (a quicker, weaker magic missile), and Soul Greatsword (a magic slash attack). Miracles come in the shape of things like Sacred Oath, which buffs defensive and offensive stats, and a Heal, but also includes some damage-dealing magic like Lightning Spear. Both spells and miracles can be cast in two forms: a quick cast, or a more powerful variant bound to a different key, performed by holding down and charging the cast button. Magic drains a mana bar, which is restored by using a new flask … [Read more...] about Dark Souls 3 release date is April 2016, has a whole new magic system and Estus Flask
The release date and two separate collector's editions for Dark Souls III appear to have been leaked by an online retailer listing. Geekay Games has published listings (via Wario64) for two versions of Dark Souls III: the Collector edition and Prestige edition. Accompanying images on both pages reveal their contents, as well as a release date of April 12, 2016. That fits right into the April release window we'd previously been given.The Collector edition comes with the game itself, a 25-cm (about 10-inch) red knight figurine, hardcover art book, cloth map, soundtrack, iron-on patches, metal case, and collector's box.The Prestige edition includes many of the same things--the game, art book, cloth map, soundtrack, patches, and metal case. But in place of the red knight figurine, you instead get a 40-cm (about 16-inch) Lord of Cinder figurine and what looks like a different collector's box. Being a Middle Eastern retailer, the prices listed for both versions are unlikely to line up with … [Read more...] about Dark Souls 3 Release Date, Two Collector’s Editions Leaked by Retailer
Bandai Namco has confirmed Dark Souls 3 will launch in North America, South America, and Europe on April 12. Along with this, developer From Software has updated its YouTube channel with a new gameplay video.Judging from its title, the video seems to have been set for a debut at Sony's PlayStation Experience event this week but has appeared online a little early. It encapsulates a number of previously unseen areas and enemy types. The action starts with a player running along a path towards a large castle-like structure. A few steps in huge spears begin landing at his feet, as if thrown by a distant giant.Later on in the video we're given a look at an open courtyard area, where what initially looks like a tree suddenly turns around and becomes a mammoth boss. It stomps its feet and inches around the arena, attempting to crush the player. It's an impressive and, frankly, disgusting-looking thing. There's also a quintessentially Dark Souls moment towards the end which we won't spoil. A … [Read more...] about Dark Souls 3 Release Date Confirmed, Jaw-Dropping New Trailer Released
