Okay Dark Souls fans, we’ve got some good and some bad news for you today. The good news is that Dark Souls 2 got a target release date. The bad news is that the sequel to one of the hardest RPGs won’t be coming anytime soon. Namco Bandai has confirmed to Eurogamer that Dark Souls 2 is currently planned for a March 2014 release on current-gen systems and PC. And given that 2014 release window, we can almost be certain that it will be ported to both PS4 and XBOne.
Dark Souls II will continue a legacy of presenting its passionate fans with the kind of unrelenting challenges that have become a hallmark of the series, while presenting devilish new obstacles for players to overcome.
Built upon the foundation established by Souls series creator and Dark Souls II Supervisor, Hidetaka Miyazaki, with development helmed by FromSoftware Director Tomohiro Shibuya, Dark Souls II will feature a new hero, a new storyline, and an unfamiliar world for players to survive in, while delivering the uncompromising challenge and ultimate sense of empowerment that players hunger for.
Epic battles with gruesome enemies and blood-thirsty bosses await adventurers as they traverse and conquer a devastated world filled with death and despair.
Players will also discover a revamped server based multiplayer experience that will put a distinct Dark Souls II twist on the concept of playing and sharing with others. For those with enough tenacity and sheer force of will, great rewards await.
