Back in February 2021, we informed you about Dark Souls: Nightfall. And today, Team Nightfall announced the release date for its fan sequel to Dark Souls. Additionally, the team released a new teaser trailer that you can find below.
Dark Souls: Nightfall is a direct, fan-made sequel to Dark Souls with a new story, new combat system, new world map, and more. The good news here is that this is strictly a single-player mod. Furthermore, Nightfall will prevent the game from connecting to the official servers. Now the reason I’m saying this is good news is because you won’t have to worry about a potential ban. Since the game won’t connect to the servers, you won’t receive any penalty/ban for playing it.
Do note though that this mod will be exclusive to Dark Souls: Remastered.
As the team noted:
“We would want to extend the mod to PtDE as well, but there are technical limitations inherent to PtDE that make it unable to support some of the ambitious changes Nightfall is implementing.”
Speaking of Dark Souls Remastered, you may be also interested in the following mods. There is a 6GB HD Texture Pack that overhauls maps, objects and enemies. There is also another graphics mod that improves the fog, lighting, light scattering, shadows, color correction and contrast of all areas. Additionally, this Ultra HD Texture Pack adds more than 100 high-quality 4K textures.
Dark Souls: Nightfall will release on December 21st.
