A New World. One Last Journey.
Dark Souls III Ringed City DLC: Features
From the looks of things, the Dark Souls faithful are in for some pretty challenging content. Not only does the new DLC promise new weapons, new armour sets, news spells and new equipment, the developers have also stated there will be new ‘formidable’ bosses as well.
Remember this is a Dark Souls game so ‘formidable’ can range from ‘eye-wateringly hard’ to ‘are you f*cking kidding me?’ in terms of difficulty. The Ringed City DLC will also provide the conclusive end to the Dark Souls III plotline.
On top of that, players can expect to team up for some co-op or test their mettle against other players on new PVP maps.
The gameplay video below showcases some of the DLC’s content including many new enemies and a brutal boss battle. (Spoilers abound so if you want to head into the DLC knowing the bare minimum, you might want to avoid watching it)
Dark Souls III is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Ringed City expansion releases for all 3 platforms on March 28, 2017 and marks the end of the Dark Souls III saga.
