Dark Souls III is getting a new patch that increases its framerate on the PS4 Pro

This has happened before, but it's still weird to see us entering an era of "PS4 Pro exclusive patches." The next one on the docket is Dark Souls III, which will be rolling out patch 1.11 soon across all platforms, but the PS4 Pro specifica...   read

These are the new PvP arenas for Dark Souls III

Even if you aren't keen on the idea of more player-versus-player arenas in Dark Souls III, let this pair of videos serve as a reminder that, oh yeah, the second and final DLC for the game isn't far off. The Ringed City is out on March 28, a...   read

Dark Souls III will also have a Design Works art book

The intricate and grotesquely beautiful Dark Souls games make for some damn fine art books. Following the path paved by Dark Souls and Dark Souls II, there will in fact be a Design Works book for Dark Souls III, and knowing some of the effe...   read

Dark Souls III: The Ringed City gets darkly gorgeous screenshots

I haven't gotten too far into Dark Souls III myself, because I am terrible, but I am absolutely in love with it. From Software's gothic dread speaks to my aesthetic, but what really holds the Souls series together are its monster designs. D...   read

Bloodborne doesn't get much of a boost from the PS4 Pro's boost mode

When it comes to the PS4 Pro's upcoming "Boost Mode" that's now in beta testing, there's only one genre I really care about in terms of any sort of performance enhancement -- action games. If you can make a mascot platformer slightly more e...   read

If you want to play Dark Souls 2 again, the time is at hand

Dark Souls games are best experienced in the moment. Those first few months of release when the player base is active, mysteries abound, and perilous invaders lurk around every corner. Seeing the phantoms of other players, the helpful (and ...   read

Dark Souls III's final DLC promises a 'conclusive ending,' new footage emerges

I try to place headers into Souls stories that are as generic as possible, avoiding spoilers when I can. Sometimes it's unavoidable, but the most important thing you can do? Not watch videos. That includes this Dark Souls III: The Ringed Ci...   read

The final Dark Souls III DLC is called 'The Ringed City'

Dark Souls III didn't have the strongest showing for its first DLC, but it had its moments. The Ringed City on the other hand, the second and final add-on (possibly ever, for Souls), looks like it isn't messing around. With no men...   read

How did Destructoid's most anticipated games of 2016 turn out?

One year ago, before 2016 became a hackneyed punchline ("2016? More like 2000-sucks-teen!!!" the peanut gallery offered when Johnny Depp tragically fell into an active volcano while doing the "Mannequin Challenge" on its rim), we had hope. ...   read

Destructoid's award for Best Xbox One Game of 2016 goes to...

There's nothing quite like Dark Souls. It's a series that intrigues and ensnares, temping its players to persevere against harsh odds to see the next captivating set design or beautifully vile boss. At times, these games teeter over the edg...   read

You can never have enough Dark Souls prints

We've featured video game prints from Cook & Becker several times before, and when I think of specific series that lend themselves particularly well to the wall treatment, Dark Souls ranks up there. There's a new line of prints on sale ...   read

Rumour: Dark Souls III may be heading to the Nintendo Switch

When it was first revealed that From Software would be working on producing titles for Nintendo's upcoming console -- the Nintendo Switch -- my mind raced. Immediately, I thought of the possibility of playing games like Dark Souls whil...   read

Salt and Sanctuary is shaping up nicely on Vita

When I reviewed Salt and Sanctuary earlier this year on PlayStation 4, I found it to be a more-than-competent side-scrolling take on From Software's Souls series. I played the majority of it in co-op and had a great time with its intricate ...   read

Dark Souls III's first DLC is out a day early on PC thanks to an Xbox snafu

So last Friday, a number of you may have noticed that the new Dark Souls III DLC, Ashes of Ariandel, made its way on the Xbox One storefront. I know a few of you snagged it up quick, but Bandai Namco pulled the plug on that operation later ...   read

Here's how to access the new Dark Souls III DLC

One question I get pretty often whenever a new DLC for Souls launches is "how do you access it?"In true Souls form, you don't really go through a traditional menu. Instead, the player either has to follow vague clues or find ...   read

Review: Dark Souls III: Ashes of Ariandel

Souls DLC is a risk by design. The core games are crafted around a multitude of different concepts bound by a cohesive theme that just comes together by the time you reach the finish line. So by adding on extra optional quests months down t...   read

Peek at Dark Souls III's upcoming three-on-three PvP

Some of my fondest memories in Dark Souls III were made while mucking about as a member of the Mound Makers, the game's wild-card, "When are they going to betray me?" covenant. I was a particularly friendly Mound Maker, and that always see...   read

Hidetaka Miyazaki feels 'unworthy' of Dark Souls/Zelda comparisons

A lot of gamers have noticed a striking amount of similarities between The Legend of Zelda and the Dark Souls games. Aside from being 3D action adventures titles, the combat mechanics seem to be fashioned around a similar type of gameplay, ...   read

Maybe don't watch this entire Dark Souls III DLC trailer

You might already be down for Ashes of Ariandel, the first of two add-ons coming to Dark Souls III. If that's the case, I'd say watch some -- but not all! -- of this trailer. It's made up of a handful of largely unedited encounters in the ...   read

Namco Bandai teases a 'major' Dark Souls III announcement next week

I still dabble in Dark Souls III these days, even if I've exhausted basically everything in terms of major content, but it's not the same. I pine for the days where I'm playing it constantly, and later this year it looks like I'll get ...   read

Dark Souls III director on poise stat: 'This isn't something we are proud of'

The saga of the poise stat in Dark Souls III was pretty amazing. First, fans had no idea what it did, and much to their chagrin, From Software maintained a cheeky "it's a secret!" stance on it. Eventually though someone did seemingly f...   read

If you've been craving jolly cooperation in the original Dark Souls, now is the time to play

One of the best parts of a Dark Souls game is the social element. Reading messages scrawled by possibly helpful, possibly malicious players, taking on bosses with a co-op buddy, and of course, invading and repelling invaders. Sadly, like ev...   read
