E3 is already promising to dish out the punishment with footage from Namco Bandai‘s Dark Souls II. A new boss battle displays classic Souls levels of punishment, standing stories above the player. Enemy encounters displayed the same ferocity you would expect but other than the boss none of them were actually engaged.
It’s a short glimpse but worth checking out below if you’re waiting with baited breath like me. Design wise it looks like the visuals are clearer this time around. There’s less murkiness with the greens, browns and greys without losing the atmosphere that defined the previous game. I’m itching to play this one and die again, and again, and again.
