What Is Dark Souls

 

Dark Souls is the spiritual successor to PS3 Xxclusive Demon's Souls which in turn is  spiritual successor to King's Field. Dark Souls focuses on Dungeon crawling  in a Open World Dark Fanatasy Setting. The Theme is "Tension and Fear That arises when players encounters enemies in this etting". Dark Souls has been said to be significantly Harder than Demon's Souls with more enemies nd encoounters. It futher builds upon Demons Souls with More Weapons, Armors, larger areas and bon fires that act as  respawn points can also be used to replinish health.

Plot

* NB is being hush hush on the plot but here is 4 prologue trailer that sheds just a little light

Knight: You Star as a low ranking knight with high HP and solid Armor. Your not easily toppled

Deprived: The deprived class starts the game with only a club and plank shield. he has no clothes.

 

Online:

* as of now there has been no updates to the online segments of Darks Souls as From has not released ny and Japans servers have just went up today. Will updat as soon as info is given but heres what he had to say about it.

The story telling in Dark Souls is still a secret, for now it seems Namco has decided to use a cinematic approach, similar to the one used in Demon's Souls. We caught up with the Dark Souls QA lead, David Humbart, who walked us though the review edition of the game, and further explained how multiplayer will work. You can check our interview with David below. The expanded universe of Dark Souls far exceeded our exceptions. While still being slightly restricted in some areas, and going with the always connected theme feature in Demon's Souls, Dark Souls will again allow you to place messages and helpful hints, or even summon other players into your game to help you. This new and improved version of multiplayer, has created some features that make the online play in Dark Souls reflect most MMO's


Players online in areas of the world near you can be affected by what you do, and are susceptible to an attack at any time. How FromSoftware determines whose close and who's not is partly based on where they are in the game, and which server their playing on. However, crossing over to another persons world will required some upgrades and rare items to grant you access. Some items and abilities bypass the need to upgrade, and will allow you to affect the other persons world without you ever going there. Spell casting is one of those features.

Players now have the ability to cast spells across worlds to help or hinder other players. Be advised, sabotaging another persons world( though satisfying) is not always a good idea. One spell in-particular will allow you to make another persons world harder during their single player play through, if they want to reset the difficulty( and they will) they will need to find out who did it, and defeat them to break the spell. If and when that person comes after you, you have no way of knowing until they're issuing that deadly kidney shot, sending you back to soul form.

There are a number of new cross world multiplayer features in Dark Souls that players can experience. The one thing that's still left to question is how to play with friends. Namco has been unclear on if players will have the ability to invite friends to single player games. The overall concepts for non competieve multiplayer modes in Dark Souls seems to be pretty random, making things feel slightly disconnected from a social aspect. Also not helping with the making of friends is a return of the emote system. With no voice communication confirmed just yet, you may find yourself wanting to stab your helper because they dont understand what you need them to do.

i have to admit that ive taken the cheapest path in Demons Souls, i went Royalty. But i didnt know about class imbalance, since i've bought it spontaneous after seeing a few gameplay videos. (Second one was temple knight.) .. but i miss both of them, and they really should have been in Dark Souls too, imo.

but thats just my Opinion. sadly, i am absolutely not into magic, which kills half the classes for me.. xD but well, thats a fault on my own, and i am sure that, in the end, it doesnt matter what class one chose at the beginning, just like DemonsSouls. (Or is it different this time?)
