Dark Souls III Box Art

This game was released on April 12, 2016 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Dark Souls III is an action RPG developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. The game features faster, more fluid combat compared to its predecessors, and offers additional tactical options to the players. These include chargeable attacks and spells which now use a magic meter similarly to the first game of the series, Demon’s Souls.

Naturally, Dark Souls III also improves the graphics quality and the amount of details on the screen, while retaining the same visual style that the fans have come to love.
