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

You might need to finagle it

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 the new zone completely on their own, which can get annoying if you’re not keen on exploring the entire game again. So, much like my previous videos, here’s one for Ashes of Ariandel, which launches in a few days on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Essentially, you’ll want to head to the Cleansing Chapel bonfire in the Cathedral of the Deep tab, and talk to the NPC at the altar. Simple enough to the point where it doesn’t warrant a video, right? Well, like others, I had trouble actually finding him, namely because he might not appear the first time you head there. If he’s not in that exact spot, head to a new zone, reload your game, and come back.
