Tremble in fear at our first look at Dark Souls III

Yep, that’s some Dark Souls right there

At today’s Microsoft gamescom press conference, the general public finally got its first look at Dark Souls III, and it certainly looks like a new-gen Dark Souls game.

The trailer showed off several new bosses, multiple large scale environments and a combat system that appeared to be faster paced, more in line with Bloodborne than previous Souls entries. Many of the character animations were reminiscent of the original Dark Souls, the music was creepy as hell, and there were some interesting lore implications made regarding the undead and their ceremonial robes.

Dark Souls III is due out in 2016 and I for one cannot freaking wait.
