Dark Souls II Dated And Detailed
Dark Souls is the eagerly awaited sequel to the masochism simulator that Christian Grey plays in his spare time. Today, I’ve got some fresh details and even a release date to share with you.
From Software director Yui Tanimura explained some changes made over the previous game at a recent presentation. The peer-to-peer lobbies are gone, replaced by dedicated servers as in Demon’s Souls and thereby increasing the number of player that can populate a given area. In order to encourage player interaction, blood messaging is built into Dark Souls II as a system command, negating the original game’s item requirements.

Summoned players, players who have been brought into another player’s game, will no longer be kicked upon defeating a boss. Instead, by making use of different sized White Soapstone items you can extend the amount of co-op time you have. However, this allotted time depletes more rapidly as the summoned player defeats enemies. Also, it is now possible to summon two players for a beast slaying threesome.
If you happen to belong to the “Way of the Blue” covenant then you can now call re-reinforcements should your game be invaded. This balances the game out a little to prevent stronger players from preying on low-level players whilst also letting outside players act as the knight in shining armour.
Finally, if a player dies while playing as an undead character, their HP limits will drop successively each time. To recover from thsi downward spiral players must expend a “Human Effigy” item. Also, undead players are susceptible to invasions now.
Dark Souls II will release on March 11 for Xbox 360 and PS3 though a PC release date has yet to be confirmed. PS3 users in Europe, Australia and North America can sign up for the beta which starts on October 12.
